VINTAGE 1960’s SWISS EMPEROR STAINLESS STEEL PROFESSIONAL DIVERS CHRONOGRAPH GLOSS TRITIUM DIAL NEW OLD STOCK.

THIS BEAUTIFUL GENTLEMEN’s CHRONOGRAPH WAS MANUFACTURED IN THE MID 1960’s AND IS IN TOTALLY ’NEW-OLD-STOCK’ CONDITION. A PROFESSIONAL DIVERS CHRONOGRAPH, THESE WERE RATED TO A DEPTH OF 20 ATMOSPHERES, WHICH IS AROUND 200 METERS AND QUITE A DEPTH FOR A CHRONOGRAPH.
THE ALL STAINLESS-STEEL WATERPROOF CASE MEASURES 38mm ACROSS THE BEZEL NOT INCLUDING THE CROWN AND 47mm TIP TO TIP.
THE WATCH IS IN EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION AND HAS NEVER BEEN POLISHED. THE STRAP LUGS WITH CHAMFERED SHOULDERS STILL HAVE PERFECT SHARP EDGES AS THEY SHOULD.
THE ORIGINAL LARGE STEEL WINDING CROWN AND PUSHERS ARE STILL IN GREAT CONDITION. THE REVOLVING SLIDE-RULE BEZEL IS IN PERFECT CONDITION WITH NO WEAR AT ALL. THERE IS A TINY ‘PI’ SYMBOL ON THE BEZEL SCALE AT 6 O-CLOCK WHICH WE HAVE SEEN VERY RARELY.
THE SCREW-DOWN BACK IS FLAWLESS, WITH NO WEAR WHAT-SO-EVER AND MARKED WITH IT’S 20 ATM DEPTH RATING.
THE GLOSSY BLACK  DIAL IS REALLY QUITE STUNNING, WITH LARGE TRITIUM LUME FIGURES AND BATON MARKERS. THE LARGE HEAVY TRITIUM LUMED HANDS ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION AND BOTH HANDS AND DIAL STILL GLOW VERY BRIGHTLY IN THE DARK. SIGNED BY THE MAKER ’SWISS EMPEROR’ WHO APPEAR TO HAVE MANUFACTURED SOME VERY, VERY NICE QUALITY CHRONOGRAPHS.
THE LANDERON CALIBRE 248 MOVEMENT IS OF VERY NICE QUALITY AND DOES NOT DISAPPOINT, FINISHED TO A GOOD STANDARD AND IN ‘AS-NEW’ CONDITION.
WORKING PERFECTLY AS IT SHOULD, WINDS AND SETS CORRECTLY AND THE CHRONOGRAPH OPERATES FLAWLESSLY.
THE WATCH IS IN EXCEPTIONAL ORIGINAL CONDITION THROUGHOUT AND STILL RETAINS THE ORIGINAL 20mm RUBBER ’TROPIC’ TYPE STRAP WHICH IS A RARITY IN ITSELF.
A VERY HANDSOME CHRONOGRAPH ON THE WRIST, THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONAL PROFESSIONAL DIVERS WATCH IN EVERY RESPECT.
