In the horological world can be found many retailers who had the chance to put their signature on the dials or cases of various watches. In this list, it is really complicated to find some with 120 years of history, and in these very few, the number of those which remain privately owned is even lower. One of them is Türler, the famous retailer of Zurich. Despite a gorgeous case and two amazing extended lugs with four oval horns at each end, the present chronometer shows the rare signature of Türler on a gilt pink dial decorated with applied Arabic numerals and the two subsidiary dials for constant seconds and 30 minutes registration. It is really difficult to find a wristwatch like this specific one.
