Silvana Triple Calendar Moonphase

If you've never heard of Silvana before, we wouldn't blame you. The brand has its roots in the late 19th century, when it was established as a clockmaking arm of A. Raymond S.A. in Tramelan. By 1923 Silvana S.A. was established in a manufacture that employed over 70 people; in 1929 the company merged with H. Gasser & Co. and transferred operations to Bienne. 

From the 1930s to 1960s, Silvana turned out simple, reliable watches with high-grade cases and movements. The brand expanded their distribution from Europe to the Middle East, the Caribbean, and South America. However, in the 1980s the company was sold, and absorbed into a holding company; though the name remains, it's a shadow of the brand's illustrious past.

Though best known for its tool watches, the brand also produced dress watches like this gorgeous triple calendar with moon-phase. Dating from the 1950s, at 37mm the case is oversized for the era. 

Though it's chrome-plated in the front (stainless steel in the back) the case hasn't suffered undue damage over the years. Powered by a Valjoux Caliber 90 movement and with a Portuguese date wheel, it's a testament to the sheer quality of mid-century watchmaking.
