Regular price $949.99 Sale

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A SEXY MID 1960s ELGIN CARRERA STYLE PANDA CHRONO IN AWESOME CONDITION.

 

  • CASE: CLASSY ALL STEEL CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  SHE MEASURES A NICE 36 NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 43mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS ONE WEARS REALLY NICE AND HAS A SOLID FEEL ON THE WRIST. 

 

  • DIAL: WHAT A LOOKER!!!  THIS GORGEOUS CREME COLORED PANDA DIAL IS THE GOOD STUFF.  THIS WAS A DIAL STYLE WHICH WAS VERY POPULAR IN THE 60s AND HAS BECOME QUITE COLLECTIBLE. I LOVE THOSE GLOSSY BLACK AND SLIGHTLY SUNKEN  SUBDIALS .  CHECK OUT THAT BLUE COUNTDOWN SEGMENT ON THE MINUTE TOTALIZER. YOU GOTTA DIG ALL THE AGED TRITIUM ON THIS DIAL AND THOSE DAGGER STEEL HANDS. THE GHOSTED CITRUS CHRONO SWEEP HAND IS THE TOPPER ON THIS PERECTLY EXECUTED FACE. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS ELGIN IS POWERED BY THE VENERABLE VALJOUX 7733 TICKING UNDER THE HOOD.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING TIME.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT THIS IS A STRONG RUNNER.

 

THIS SPORTY BEAUTY IS MOUNTED ON A PERIOD APPROPRIATE MILANESE STEEL BRACELET.  IN MY OPINION, THE ELGIN PANDA AND REVERSE PANDA CHRONOGRAPHS OF THE 60s ARE AS ELEGANT AND HIGH QUALITY AS THOSE PUT OUT BY HEUER AND BREITLING. THIS IS A CLEAN EXAMPLE READY TO WEAR AND IS SURE TO BE A FANTASTIC INVESTMENT AS THESE PIECES BECOME MORE RARE.
