FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS RADIACL 70s RALLYE DIVE CHRONOGRAPH WITH KILLER DARK BLUE BAKELITE BEZEL AND SMOOTH RUNNING VALJOUX 7734.  

 

  • CASE: CLEAN ALL STEEL CUSHION CASE IN UNSPOILED CONDITION.  THIS THING IS IN REALLY NICE SHAPE MAINTAINING MOST OF ITS ORIGINAL BRUSHED FINISH ON TOP, SHARP EDGES, AND CLEAN POLISHED SIDES. SOME MINOR HAIRLINES BUT OVERALL IN STUNNING CONDITION.  THIS SPORTY GUY MEASURES A NICE 40.5 ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 45mm LUG TO LUG.  SUPER CHUNKY ON THE WRIST ESPECIALLY WITH THE 22mm LUG SPACING.  CHECK OUT THAT GNARLY DARK BLUE BAKELITE BEZEL. SHE ROTATES BIDIRECTIONALLY WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION. 

 

  • DIAL: THIS RACY FUME BLUE/GREY DIAL IS SERIOUSLY DREAMY. CHECK OUT THOSE TOWERING STEEL MARKERS WITH THE INTACT LUMED SLIVERS WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF TOASTY PATINA. THE TRITIUM ON THE DIAL MATCHES NICELY WITH THAT ON THOSE BLACK TIPPED STEEL HANDS. THE SLOPING WHITE TACHY CHAPTER RING ADDS A NICE CONTRAST WITH THOSE BLACK SQUARE SUBDIALS. THIS DIAL IS SUPER COOL.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS DANIS IS POWERED BY THE TRIED-AND-TRUE VALJOUX 7734.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT WATCH HAS BEEN BEHAVING AMAZINGLY OVER WEEKS OF ON/OFF WRIST OBSERVATION.

 

  • THIS DIVE CHRONO IS MOUNTED ON A SPORTY BLUE RUBBER STRAP WHICH LOOKS AWESOME WITH THE COLOR SCHEME OF THE DIAL/BEZEL.  THIS CASE/DIAL COMBO WAS USED BY A HANDFUL OF FRENCH WATCH COMPANIES IN THE EARLY TO MID 70s. WITH THE COMBO OF THAT SMOKEY FUME DIAL WITH THAT DARK BLUE BAKELITE BEZEL, THIS ONE IS AN ABSOLUTE SLAYER.
