Essay: Launched in 1934, the reference 130 is powered by a heavily modified Valjoux movement, and easily recognizable due to its slightly curved, elongated lugs and thin bezel. The model was extremely successful and remained in production until 1964. Even though it was manufactured for close to 30 years, output was quite limited, resulting in a total of about 1500 pieces produced.
