"L'Exposition de Montres et Bijoux 1956" by Louis Cottier - Original magazine article / magazine clipping which was removed from a 1956 Swiss magazine. The clipping consists of both text pages and pages showing black and white photos of timepieces and jewelry from various companies.
Main text in the article is in French.
The opening sentence of the article reads:
"Apres quatre expositions au Musee d'Art et d'Histoire ou le theme annexe avait necessite de vastes locaux, Montres et Bijoux est revenu a des proportions plus restreintes."
The magazine clipping was carefully removed from a Swiss magazine.
[Please note: this is a magazine article/magazine clipping only; no watch, clock, jewelry, parts, tools, or other items are included.]
The entire clipping is approximately 8 pages in length (on 4 sheets of paper). (The photo section is 4 pages in length, on two sheets of paper, front and back).

As with most vintage magazine clippings, there is some yellowing to the paper due to age as well as light wear and small bends.
