Freebie Friday: Art Deco Cyma Watch

Vintage Deco Cyma Watch

I came home from a week of watch watching at BaselWorld to receive a belated birthday present from my older sister. It is a lovely late 1930s or early 1940s watch by Cyma — a company that is still in operation. And it works and is keeping good time (minus one minute a day). I love the two tone dial and the teeny tiny sub seconds. I love the applied Arabic numerals and the embossed cushion case. And I love the size.

I wonder what reaction this timepiece would have received if there was such a thing as BaselWorld back in the day?
