Regular price $1,199.00 Sale

FROM MY PERSONAL STASH, A COVETED MINT CONDITION ELGIN CAMARO STYLE TRI-COMPAX CHRONOGRAPH. WITH FULL SET BOX/PAPERS. RECENTLY SERVICED. 

 

  • CASE: MINT CONDITION GOLD PLAQUE CAMARO STYLE CUSHION CASE MEASURING IN AT 41mm ACROSS BY 43mm LUG TO LUG. THIS THING IS IN IMPECCABLE CONDITION WITH ALL THE ORIGINAL FINISHES INTACT. I LOVE THE SHARP DELINEATION BETWEEN THE BRUSHED TOP AND THE MIRRORED SIDES. NICE SHARP SQUARED LUGS. STILL WITH THE PROTECTIVE STICKER ON THE BACK.

 

  • DIAL:  THIS THING IS A TOTAL SLAYER. GORGEOUS SEMI-MATTE BLACK DIAL IN MINT CONDITION WITH CREAMY WHITE SUBDIALS. I LOVE THE POPS OF COLOR FROM THE RED SEGMENTS ON THE MINUTE TOTALIZER SUBDIAL TO THAT TANGERINE CHRONO HAND. THE GOLD ACCENTS WITH THE HANDS, MARKERS, AND BRUSHED APPLIED ELGIN MARKER KEEP IT CLASSY. THE LUME IS IN TREMENDOUSLY WELL PRESERVED CONDITION FROM THE CREAMY TRITIUM ON THE HANDS TO THAT ON THE DIAL LUME PLOTS.THIS DIAL IS MAGNIFICENT.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS  BEAUTY IS POWERED BY AN ELGIN SIGNED VALJOUX 7736 TRI-COMPAX MOVEMENT. EVERYTHING IS WORKING SNAPPY ON THIS ONE. WATCH HAS BEEN SERVICED WITHIN THE LAST YEAR AND IS RUNNING LIKE A TOP.

 

  • THIS BEAUTY IS MOUNTED ON A HIGH QUALITY PERFORATED HEUER STYLE LEATHER STRAP WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT ON THIS WATCH. THE ORIGINAL BOX AND PAPER SET IS ALMOST AS COOL AS THE WATCH ITSELF. CHECK OUT THE INNER/OUTER BOXES WITH THAT AWESOME WHITE BAKELITE INNER. THE ORIGINAL WATCH GUARANTEE FROM BURDINES DATING TO DECEMBER 1969 IS SUPER COOL. THERE'S ALSO THE BOOKLETS INCLUDED FROM ELGIN WHICH ARE IN CLEAN CRISP CONDITION. THIS MAY BE THE MOST PAINFUL WATCH I'VE HAD TO PART WITH. IT'S RARE TO FIND A CHRONOGRAPH IN THIS CONDITION WITH ALL THE ORIGINAL FULL-SET GOODIES. THE WATCH ALONE IS ONE OF THE BEST LOOKING CHRONOS OF THE 60s/70s EASILY AS COOL AS ITS HEUER CAMARO COUSIN. THIS IS FOR THE TRUE COLLECTOR
