Art Deco styled chronometer with automatic winding when case is opened. Snake skin covered case. Swiss made dial first marketed from the 1920s.

The Ermeto was designed to be the ultimate pocket watch.It was advertised as a practical and tough travel watch with protection from dust and rain, and on the other, as a fashion item, elegant and customisable. A statement of Art Deco elegance, a smart piece of jewellery. A high-end watch for frequent travellers and sportsmen/women, the Ermeto was adopted by both genders and ultimately becoming the industry’s first unisex watch.
