70s MATY

70s MATY "PAUL-NEWMAN" DIAL 7734 FLIGHT DIVER CHRONO

Regular price $0.00 $999.00 Sale

FOR YOU CONSIDERATION IS A MEGA FUNKY 70s MATY BESANCON FRENCH FLIGHT CHRONO WITH THE FAMED PAUL NEWMAN SINGER STYLE DIAL. 

 

  • CASE: HEFTY SOLID STEEL CUSHION CASE IN NICE SHAPE. THIS STUD MEASURES A LARGE 40mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 43mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS THING WEARS BEAUTIFULLY ON THE WRIST.  CHECK OUT THAT CRAZY GORGEOUS FLIGHT-TMER BEZEL WITH THE SILVER FIXED CENTER SECTION AND THAT NICELY FADED DENIM BLUE ROTATING OUTER BEZEL. THERE IS A CRACK IN THE BEZEL WHICH DOESN'T EFFECT THE OPERATION AND IS HARDLY NOTICEABLE ON THE WRIST. NICE CHUNKY SOLID PIECE. 

 

  • DIAL: THIS DIAL IS REALLY SOMETHING TO BEHOLD! SUPER FUNKY AND WITH TONS OF VISUAL IMPACT. IT'S ALL ABOUT THOSE PAUL-NEWMAN SUBDIALS AS SEEN ON THE CLASSIC 70s ROLEX DAYTONAS. THE MATT BLACK BACKGROUND IS IN SUPER CLEAN SHAPE. THE LUME PLOTS ON THE DIAL HAVE A NICE WARM PATINA WHICH MATCHES NICELY WITH THAT ON THE HANDSET. I REALLY DIG THOSE CIGARETTE STYLE HANDS WITH THE ORANGE TIPS WHICH PAIR NICELY WITH THE CITRUS SUBDIAL/CHRONO SWEEPER HANDS.THE RED DATE WHEEL IS A NICE TOUCH.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS BEAST IS POWERED BY A VALJOUX 7734.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. EVERYTHING WORKS CRISPLY ON THIS ONE.

 

  • THIS MATY IS MOUNTED ON AN ROBUST PERFORATED TAN LEATHER STRAP WHICH BRINGS OUT THE SPORTY NATURE OF THIS BEAST.  IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO ADD A CHRONO TO YOUR COLLECTION WITH THE SINGER STYLE DIAL, THIS WOULD BE A NICE AFFORDABLE OPTION.  THIS ONE REMINDS ME OF ITS FRENCH COUSIN THE "FLYGRAPH" MADE BY LEJOUR/YEMA. THIS ONE IS A TON OF FUN TO WEAR.
