VINTAGE 1961 TRIPLE CALENDAR CHRONOGRAPH WITH ORIGINAL BOX

High grade Valjoux movement.

This beautiful stainless steel chronograph with case measuring 34.5mm in diameter not including the crown and 44mm tip to tip is in totally original unmolested condition.

The dial is signed ‘Lorenz -Extra’, though the watch was retailed by the highly respected Italian watch- maker and jeweller ‘Enrico Verita’,selling and repairing quality timepieces in Florence for over one hundred and 50 years.

This watch is a superb example in every respect.Using one of the finest movements of this period, the Valjoux 72C and finished to the highest grade.

With all polished levers etc. Only a fraction of Valjoux’s movements were finished to this standard and you will find a similar movement in the Rolex Triple Calendars of the same period.

The watch has never been polished or messed with in any way and is original in every respect.

Just a new leather strap fitted,though the steel buckle is the original .

Box, users instructions and purchase receipt from Enrico Verita complete the set.

I will point out a little lacquer loss in one small area of the dial which does not detract from its beauty and far better to be left in original condition i believe.

This is a special wristwatch ,highly collectable and very,very unusual to find in this wonderful condition.  And recently fully serviced.

This watch is displayed in our Hungerford store in the Hungerford Arcade Antiques Center.
