The legendary brand of La Shen de Background Juvenia, well known to all collectors, is already the third generation of its cult model of the Sextant, which appeared in the 1940s.

Juvenia’s name will definitely respond in the head in everyone who at least once leaving a clocky auction directory.

By the way, at first, only one lion was in the coat of arms Juvenia, but then he got a couple, besides looking in the other side – the company was forced to complicate the drawing to fight for fakes of its superpopular models. One of which was the SEXTANT line, first presented in the 1940s.
The name of the o’clock gave an old navigation device designed to measure the position of the Sun: with the help of a ruler and a special “limb” (Schoolchildren this tool is known as the transportation) with a scale of 60o – that is, 1/6 of the circle, hence the Latin name “Sextant”.

“This model was created as dedication to scientists and architects, for whom accurate measurements are important. Therefore, the hourly indication was displayed using special technical instruments: the drawing line, the arrow of the compass and the “limb” of the sextant.

The recognizable, unique design and high quality of Juvenia Sextant III won a worthy place among the exclusive Swiss watches worldwide. ”
