The lume triangles with printed numerals over the lume is a typical French design feature – and they still glow nicely.

About Avelta

Mr Édouard Chemla created the Avelta brand in the 1960’s at 6 rue de Maréchal Fayolle in Marseille. The history of the brand seems to have become lost in time, although their beautiful watches still remain. All the components have been French-made, and the quality in many aspects is usually better than Swiss products of the same grade level.

Servicing and Guarantee

This timepiece has been serviced with full disassembly in our Bristol workshop. There is a 12-month guarantee, subject to the usage and care guidelines. Comes with a black nylon strap.
