Wyler with Taubert Fils case circa 1935-40 | steel hand wound vintage wristwatch

The Wyler watch company was based in Bienne Switzerland. Wyler are perhaps best known for their early innovative wristwatches, including an unusual automatic watch which wound itself via a ‘plunger’ activated by the wrist. This charismatic multi-faceted wristwatch dates to the mid to late 1930s. The small mid-sized case was designed by Taubert Fils and is one of the case maker’s more unusual designs. Octagonally shaped, each side of the case is surmounted by a chamfer that facets inwards to meet the flat bezel. The lugs have an asymmetrical facet to their upper surface creating further interest as light plays across the bevelled surfaces. From the late 19th century when it existed under the name Frères Borgel, Taubert & Fils was one of the finest Geneva based case makers and specialists in the manufacture of high quality dirt and moisture-resistant cases. Taubert cases are of exceptional quality and were used by some of the finest makers, including Patek Philippe, for whom Taubert famously supplied the superb screw-back case for the chronograph reference, 1463. There is some tarnishing and wear to the surface of the dial and some scratching to the subsidiary seconds. The case retains very good definition to its angles and edges.
