Regular price $925.00 Sale

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY IS A SEXY LATE 60s PRECIMAX GOLDEN PANDA CARRERA STYLE MEN’S CHRONOGRAPH 

 

  • CASE: CLASSY CARRERA STYLE GOLD PLAQUE CASE IN NICE VINTAGE CONDITION.  SHE MEASURES 37mm  NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 44mm LUG TO LUG. THERE’S SOME SIGNS OF GOLD WEAR ON THE TIPS AND EDGES OF THE LUGS COMMENSURATE WITH AGE. THESE WEAR LARGE....MORE LIKE A 39-40mm WATCH BECAUSE OF THE THIN BEZEL, CHUNKY LUGS, AND WIDE DIAL.     

 

  • DIAL: SIMPLY STUNNING.  REALLY GORGEOUS WORK ON THIS GOLDEN PANDA DIAL. I LOVE THE WAY THE GOLD AND THE BLACK PLAY TOGETHER MAKING THIS DIAL REALLY POP BUT ALSO MAKING FOR FANTASTIC LEGIBILITY.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS CHRONO IS POWERED BY THE VENERABLE 17J VALJOUX 7733.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING TIME AND CHRONO FUNCTIONS CRISPLY.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT THIS ONE IS A STRONG RUNNER.

 

THIS WALTHAM IS MOUNTED ON A VINTAGE TEJU LIZARD GRAIN STRAP WHICH GIVES THIS ONE A MENACING LOOK.  THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHRONO CASES, AND I JUST LOVE HOW IT MATES WITH THIS DIAL TO MAKE  THE PERFECT GENTLEMAN’S SPORTS CHRONOGRAPH. THIS PARTICULAR CASE WAS USED BY A HANDFUL OF WATCH BRANDS BACK IN THE 60S. THE INSPIRATION SEEMS TO HAVE COME FROM THE HEUER, BUT REALLY IT'S GOT ITS OWN GROOVE GOING ON, AND I ACTUALLY ALMOST PREFER IT TO THE CARRERA CASE. WITH ITS GOLD TONE PANDA DIAL, THIS WATCH CAN BE DRESSED UP PRETTY EASILY, BUT WITH ITS LARGER SIZE AND SPORTY VIBE, IT WOULD ALSO MAKE A GREAT EVERYDAY PIECE.
