HARD TO FIND AUTHENTIC HANS U. KLIGENBERG's CENTURY VACUUM GENTS WRISTWATCH






Background on the vacuum watch:

In 1959, he developed a brilliant invention, whose key principle is based on creating a vacuum to ensure water, air and dust-resistance. This exclusive system lies at the heart of many creations and has been the object of many patents registered by CENTURY. It has also been exploited by various licences which allowed Hans U. Klingenberg to pursue his dream to continue his seeking of new techniques and inventions.
