Description

The company Auricoste was a specialist for marine watches, ship's watches, chronometers and diving watches. Some of the Auricoste chronographs like ours also went to the CEV (centre d'essaie en vol) - the French test flight centre.

There is a story behind a vintage watch.
Besides the obvious fact that traveling down the years,
a watch absorbs the energy of time and history, it often has a significant story to tell, based on the purpose it was originally made for.
