Up for grabs is a beautiful 1940s “Spillmann”  Marvin chronograph.  These specific cases were produced by JR Spillman in the 1940s for use by a variety of brands (e.g., Universal Geneve, Doxa, and Bovet to name a few) as a shell for their waterproof chronographs.  They have gained immense popularity amongst collectors, due to their size, rarity, and the fact that they are screwback and pump-pusher chronographs.  The present example was produced by the brand Marvin, and features a gorgeous two-tone and two-color gilt dial, and is fitted with uncommon “inverse” pushers.  The condition on the Marvin chronograph is great; the case has been lightly detailed/polished, but retains its thick and faceted lugs.  The dial is in great condition, with no major wear, and only a light patina consistent with the age of the watch.  Please note that the tip of the chronograph hand at the bottom has broken off, and can be replaced upon request.
