MEGA FUNKY~70s DARWIL LEMANIA 1340 AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH

Regular price $0.00 $865.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A FAR-OUT 70s DARWIL NEAR-MINT CONDITION RACING CHRONO WITH AWESOME  DIAL RUNNING ON A LEMANIA 1340

  • CASE: HEAVY DUTY SOLID STEEL CUSHION CASE MEASURING A ROBUST 42.5mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 39.5mm LUG TO LUG.  NICE THICK BLOCKY PROPORTIONS MAKE THIS ONE A HUNK ON THE WRIST.  THIS THING LOOKS COMPLETELY UNTOUCHED. MAYBE A MINOR SCUFF HERE AND THERE, BUT THIS THING LOOKS PRETTY DARN PRISTINE. 
  • DIAL: THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF 70s FUNK.  CHECK OUT THAT BRILLIANT SUNBURST METALLIC GREY FINISH WITH THOSE GROOVY RECTANGULAR WHITE SUBDIALS. THIS ONE HAS A PSYCHEDELIC LOOK WITH THE RAYS OF WHITE EMANATING FROM THE CENTER OF THE DIAL TOWARDS THE MINUTE TRACK WITH A SIMILAR REVERSE TREATMENT IN THE RUNNING SECONDS SUBDIAL. THAT WHITE SLOPING TACHY SCALE WITH THE BLUE PRINT REALLY ADDS SOME NICE DEPTH TO THE DIAL. MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS FACE, THOUGH, IS THAT KILLER HANDSET. I LOVE THOSE BOLD SANDWICH STYLE HANDS WITH THE RED/WHITE SCHEME. CHECK OUT THE RED ARROW CHRONO MINUTE TOTALIZER. SO WICKED!!! ALL VIEWED UNDER THE ORIGINAL PYRAMID STYLE ACRYLIC CRYSTAL WHICH IS SUCH A PLEASURE TO VIEW THIS DIAL THROUGH.
  • MOVEMENT: THIS DARWIL RUNS ON A 22 JEWEL LEMANIA 1340 WHICH HAS BEEN RUNNING WELL AND KEEPING TIME. WATCH WAS ACQUIRED FROM A COLLECTOR WHO STATES IT WAS SERVICED IN THE LAST 2 YEARS. THIS IS THE SAME MOVEMENT USE BY OMEGA IN MANY OF THE 70s SEAMASTER CHRONOGRAPHS.

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A 24mm GREY SUEDE STAP WHICH REALLY LOOKS SUPER SPORTY ON THIS ONE AND PLAYS WELL WITH THE COLOR SCHEME. IT'S HARD TO FIND VINTAGE CHRONOGRAPHS IN THIS TYPE OF CONDITION. THIS IS DEFINITELY A COLLECTORS GRADE PIECE AND IS SUPER FUN TO WEAR.
