Not operating anymore today, Tavannes was famous for its collaboration with LeCoultre, some Tavannes signed Reverso pop up sometimes, and has produced truly great timepieces.

The one listed here is a vintage lover’s dream. Coming straight from the 40s, this oversized (37mm) chronograph features an incredible creamy dial with snail scale and Breguet numerals, along with delicious blued Breguet hands.
