The word "rare" is thrown around somewhat listlessly in regards to watches - there are however, instances when no other word will suffice - this is one such time

In superbly original condition, this spectacular Monopusher Chronograph, powered by the venerable calibre 33.3 is everything a vintage watch should be

With both the numerals and alpha hands presenting matching and original radium in tact, the accompanying dial is truly a marvel. The outer Telemeter scale as well as inner Base scale remain clear and legible, the blue of the former sitting either side of the equally well preserved minute track printed in black

The case is no less impressive - with its grand scale (for the era, and no less wearable today), the stainless steel case is sharp and strong

Included is a hand made period correct Torres Straps Pigskin strap in harmonious pumpkin

The watch has been inspected by our trusted watchmaker, had a part maintenance service (repair of the rest function, cannon pinion lubricated, hands refitted, case cleaned, crystal polished, movement regulated) and is in full working order

The single olive shaped top pusher starts and stops the chronograph, whilst the ingenious reset pusher is set within the onion crown, once pushed, enabling the chrono hand to rest to zero

Currently keeping excellent time

This is a reference rarely seen on the market (a black dial version in superlative condition sold at Phillips in 2016 for 45,000 CHF plus fees) - don't miss out on this connoisseurs timepiece, truly a collectors item, ready to wear and to continue its journey
