VINTAGE LATE 1960’s STAINLESS-STEEL ‘RACING-DIAL’ OVAL CASE CHRONOGRAPH VALJOUX 7734 CALENDAR NEW-OLD-STOCK.

THIS VERY COOL GENTLEMEN’s CHRONOGRAPH WAS MANUFACTURED IN THE LATE 1960’s AND IS IN ABSOLUTELY PERFECT ’NEW-OLD-STOCK’ CONDITION.
THE VERY UNUSUAL OVAL SHAPED ALL STAINLESS-STEEL WATERPROOF CASE MEASURES 39mm ACROSS THE BEZEL NOT INCLUDING THE CROWN AND 44mm TIP TO TIP.
THE WATCH IS IN EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION AND HAS NEVER BEEN POLISHED, RETAINING THE ORIGINAL GRAINED ’STAR-BURST’ FINISH TO THE BEZEL WITH HIGHLY POLISHED SIDES.
THE STRAP LUGS ARE HIDDEN, MAKING FOR A VERY CLEAN AND MODERN (FOR THE TIME) LOOK. THE ORIGINAL LARGE STEEL WINDING CROWN AND PUSHERS ARE STILL IN PERFECT CONDITION.
THE 5 COLOUR  DIAL IS REALLY QUITE BEAUTIFUL, WITH LARGE LUMINOUS BATON MARKERS AND CHEQUERED WHITE ’RACING’ TYPE 1/5th OF A SECOND CHRONOGRAPH SCALE.
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 VALJOUX CALIBRE 7743 MOVEMENT WITH CALENDAR AT 6 IS OF EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY. FINISHED TO A FINE STANDARD AND IN ‘AS-NEW’ CONDITION, WORKING PERFECTLY AS IT SHOULD. WINDS AND SETS CORRECTLY AND THE CHRONOGRAPH OPERATES FLAWLESSLY.
THE WATCH IS IN FLAWLESS ORIGINAL CONDITION THROUGHOUT, WITH JUST SOME SMALL DIRT MARKS ON THE BACK WHERE A STICKER LOOKS TO HAVE BEEN REMOVED. A VERY GOOD LOOKING AND UNUSUAL CHRONOGRAPH ON THE WRIST, THIS IS A SUPERB WATCH IN EVERY RESPECT.
