ROBUST~70s DUGENA MONZA VAL.7765

Regular price $899.99 Sale

 

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A SUPER COOL 70s DUGENA MONZA(HEUER 13.1) RALLY CHRONOGRAPH IN REALLY NICE SHAPE RUNNING ON A VALJOUX 7765

 

  • CASE: LARGE AND IN-CHARGE BEAD BLASTED SOLID STEEL CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  THIS SPORTY GUY MEASURES A NICE 41mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN. SUCH A SHARP AND NO-BULLSHIT DESIGN WHICH WEARS COMFORTABLY.  THIS THING IS A TOTAL TOOL. 

 

  • DIAL: THIS DEFINITELY CAPTURES A CERTAIN 70s MACHISMO WHICH MAKES YOU WANT TO LET A LITTLE CHEST HAIR SHOW. I LOVE THAT SEMI-MATTE DEEP BLACK DIAL WITH THOSE PIE PAN GREY SUBDIALS.  I LOVE THAT HEAVY SLOPED TACHY SCALE, AND THOSE GROOVY WHITE HANDS.  THE ORIGINAL FLAT GLASS CRYSTAL IS IN CLEAN SHAPE WITH SOME VERY MINOR SCRATCHES ON THE PERIPHERY.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS DUGENA IS POWERED BY THE VENERABLE VALJOUX 7765 MANUAL WIND AND HI-BEAT CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENT WHICH IS ONE OF THE MOST STURDY CHRONO CALIBERS EVER MADE.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN. 

 

  • THIS DUGENA IS MOUNTED ON ITS ORIGINAL ALL STEEL BRACELET BRACELET IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WHICH CAN ACCOMMODATE UP TO A 7 7/8” WRIST.  DUGENA IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BRANDS FROM THE 60s AND 70s OFTEN PUMPING OUT SOME OF THE COOLEST CHRONOS OF THE ERA. YOU MIGHT RECOGNIZE THIS WATCH AS THE DOPPELGÄNGER TO THE HEUER REF. 13.1 SHARING THE SAME DIAL AND CASE(ALTHOUGH THE HEUER IS PVD).  THIS IS A REALLY NICE EXAMPLE AND, IN MY OPINION, ONE OF THE BEST VALUES OUT THERE IN THE VINTAGE WATCH MARKET.
