I have been hunting for a proper “doctors watch” for over two years. They’re both rare and unmistakable, only adding to their legend and lure. Not many were manufactured and far fewer was well preserved so I consider myself extremely lucky to have found this example.
Signed Empire Genève, this 1930’s duo-dial doctors watch was named after physicians because of their quick embrace to the dial layout. With seconds entirely separated from the dial, doctors found it much easier to track a patient’s heartbeat over a one minute period. So, although it might not be as obvious as a chronograph or dive watch, this is undoubtedly a tool watch.
It’s one of the most interesting watches I’ve been lucky enough to stock here at T&H and I couldn’t be more proud – enjoy!
