Regular price $0.00 $999.99 Sale

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY IS A SEXY MID 60s EDOX GENT'S DRESS CHRONOGRAPH RUNNING ON A LANDERON 248 IN SERIOUSLY FINE CONDITION

 

  • CASE: CLASSY ALL-STEEL CASE IN MINT CONDITION.  SHE MEASURES A SPOT-ON 36mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 42.5mm LUG TO LUG.  I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS ONE FROM THOSE TALL YET THIN LUGS TO THOSE ELEGANT PUSHERS.  THIS THINGS IN SERIOUSLY SHARP CONDITION. SOME MINOR OPENING MARKS ON THE CASEBACK, BUT OTHERWISE IN PAINFULLY MINTY CONDITION.

 

  • DIAL: SIMPLY STUNNING.  THIS SILVER SUNBURST DIAL IS IN IMMACULATE NEAR MINT CONDITION WITH SOME VERY MINOR MARKS TOWARDS THE BOTTOM OF THE DIAL.  I TOTALLY DIG THOSE DEEP DISH SUNKEN SUBDIALS AND THOSE CLEAN THIN APPLIED STICK MARKERS.  CHECK OUT THOSE CLEAN THIN DAGGER HANDS AND THAT BLUED CHRONO SWEEPER.  ALL-AROUND THIS IS A KNOCKOUT.  HOW SEXY IS THAT THIN SLOPED CHAPTER RING WITH THAT SMALL TYPE TACHYMETRE PRINT.  THE THING THAT REALLY DRAWS ME IN, THOUGH, IS THAT PROMINENT DATE WINDOW AT 12. SUCH A DAPPER LOOK AND REALLY LOOKS PRIMO FRAMED IN STEEL.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS CHRONO IS POWERED BY THE VENERABLE 17J LANDERON 189.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING TIME AND CHRONO FUNCTIONS CRISPLY.  WATCH WAS SERVICED BACK IN 2015 AND IS RUNNING INCREDIBLY CRISPLY.

 

THIS BWC IS MOUNTED ON ITS ORIGINAL BWC SIGNED LEATHER STRAP IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH ONLY MILD WEAR FROM OCCASIONAL USE.  BWC IS A BRAND KNOWN FOR MAKING SPORTY DIVERS AND CHRONOGRAPHS BACK IN THE 60s AND 70s OFTEN SHARING THE SAME CASES AND DIALS OF MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE BRANDS SUCH AS ZODIAC, BREITLING, AND HEUER.  THIS IS A SPLENDID EXAMPLE OF MID-CENTURY WATCH DESIGN AND IS JUST A SUPER COOL CHRONOGRAPH WITH A TON OF PERSONALITY AND IN INCREDIBLE CONDITION.
