1960s Favre Leuba Bivouac with original bracelet

Sold

The Favre-Leuba Bivouac is a rare and interesting toolwatch, launched in 1962 and made especially for alpinists, hence its name. The specificity of this watch is its barometer hand, working thanks to an ingenious gaz pouch integrated into the case, next to the movement. Thanks to a double scale, it works as a traditional barometer, but also as an altimeter.
Produced in moderate quantities, rarely seen in such sharp condition, because of its prime intended use, this is the perfect toolwatch.
