MADE IN SCHAFFHAUSEN

hajoth Wrote:Congratulations Antonio, beautiful watch and history. Especially the puncture of Portuguese customs. It's in a way a proof of history like the military markings on the bottom."Commandeering" by your daughter, wearing by your wife; obviously you have the same 'female' family problems as me :-). One wife, three daughters, same imterests in watches = source of discussions; two sons, one father, same imterests in watches = no problems .-))!Kind regards

I am unsure, however, of how these proportions would work in a 36 or 40mm case. I don't know if it was deliberate Clep, i know for a fact watch companys have made do (£'s) throughout the decades and would'nt have thought Schaffhausen had enough clout to be instructing pot dial manafacturers to make 'em something funkster in the mid '30's. If it was cheap enough then they could fullfill the pot/slot. I'm not averse to a bit of asymmetric/bullhead myself, just not keen on it mixed with the classical.Great signature mind.
