It’s the summer of 1944 and a weathered allied soldier is walking in Rome only days after the Allied Liberation. He finds an interesting timepiece in a store just off the Via Veneto and decides to splurge a little on this memento. He loved the way it felt in his hand, and the complex movement inside the case intrigued him. He also really liked the hunter’s back that opened to reveal a secret compartment. He nicknamed the watch Ritorno for “homecoming” and according to The Complete Guide to Watches, the rare heirloom is now valued at over £20,000. But to us, it is just a reminder that nothing is more beautiful than the smile of a healthy returning soldier. We wanted to bring this little piece of personal history back to life in a faithful reproduction. We’ve used a 22-jewelled movement reminiscent of the best watches of the 1940s. We then test it for 15 days on Swissmade calibrators to ensure accuracy to only seconds a day. The movement displays the day and date on the antique satin-finished face and the sweep second hand lets any watch expert know that it has a fine automatic movement, If you appreciate the rare, the classic, and the museum-calibre collectible, we have a limited number of Ritornos available. We hope that it will remind you to take time to remember what is truly valuable. Fits wrists 7 1/2” to 8 3/4”.
