VINTAGE 1940’s ‘NORD WATCH’ DRIVERS CHRONOGRAPH

Amazing time warp condition gentlemen’s stainless steel wristwatch with flexible hinged strap lugs. These were often worn on the side or the inside of the wrist,making them easier to see with hands on the steering wheel.

Very unusual to find one of these manufactured in stainless steel. The majority were chrome plated nickel cased or gold-plated with just a handful in stainless. Measuring 33mm in diameter not including the crown and 47mm tip to tip.

Totally original condition in every respect, never polished or restored in any way.

Fabulous two-tone silvered dial and blued steel hands. The movement is of very high quality, Geneva striped and in close to ‘as-new’ condition. The dial includes both tachometer and telemeter scales for calculating speed and distance travelled.

A stainless-steel chronograph of of this type and quality is what we would now describe as a ‘tool-watch’.Having been purchased  for a particular use in the owners career or interest.

Pilots,race-car drivers and sportsmen are often seen wearing this type of watch in old photographs for this reason.

A beautiful , rare and collectable chronograph a condition that is rarely found and likely to have an interesting story to tell.
