About This Watch

Vintage. No box/papers.

This is one of the most complicated watch from Wakmann and it is equipped with the highly respected Valjoux Calibre 730 movement that offers a triple calendar functions on top of the triple registers manual-wind, column wheel chronograph. This is the last evolution and an improved movement over the Valjoux 72C that was used by many other prestigious firms. The cal.730 offers a higher beat of 21600 so there is better accuracy and has a Glucydur balance plus a Triovis micro-regulator.

The polished steel case has user marks all round but free from major dents or scratches. It takes 27 rounds to a full wind.

The watch is triple signed on the dial, movement and case back signed by Charles Gigandet. The dial is an original and shows age on the white counters and around the white date ring which means this is not a re-conditioned dial and all graphics are crisp and 100% legible. The Valjoux 730 movement shines as new and all functions checked but do take note that these movements do not turn the months so you have to manually set them at the end of every month. Overall, a very attractive vintage complications chronograph in steel with a black dial and such was are gaining popularity fast.

Charles Gigandet SA of Tramelan, Switzerland was established in 1959. They were a private label company making movements and cases for others and counts Breitling among their clients.

Wakmann was established in New York, USA & listed in the US stock exchange. It was the official importer of Breitling watches & subsequently purchased by Breitling to export their watches over to US after WWII as there was a trade embargo for import of Swiss watches into USA.

A highly desirable and collectible complications. This is a very affordable watch even by modern standards and a far better choice over the common Moonwatch. This will be a conversational piece among watch lovers and it shares the similar movement fitted to the great Rolex Jean Claude Killy which is worth hundreds of thousands more.

Further 3% discount for cash payment.
