Regular price $825.00 Sale

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY IS AN INSANE LATE 60s/EARLY 70s DUGENA 20ATM DIVE CHRONOGRAPH RUNNING ON A VALJOUX 7733. SIGNED 3X

 

  • CASE: SOLID STEEL CUSHION CASE IN VERY NICE CONDITION MEASURING A HEALTHY 38.5mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 43mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS ONE REALLY WEARS VERY NICE AND MUCH LARGER THAN THE DIMENSIONS WOULD SUGGEST DUE TO THE THIN BEZEL AND LARGE DIAL.  THIS CASE STILL MAINTAINS ITS SHARP BEVELS AND LOOKS AWESOME. THE ROTATING BEZEL ON THIS ONE HAS A NICE EVEN FADE ON IT GIVING IT THAT AWESOME VINTAGE "GHOST" LOOK. 

 

  • DIAL: THIS FACE IS FAR-OUT, MAN. THERE'S A LOT TO TAKE IN ON THIS DIAL. I LOVE THAT BULLSEYE MOTIF WITH THE BLACK CENTRAL PORTION AND THE PERIPHERAL TACHY SCALE. ALTERNATING YOU CAN SEE THE SUNBURST SILVER FINISH WITH THAT OUTER MIRRORED CHAPTER RING SCALE. REALLY FANTASTIC. I LOVE THE LITTLE POPS OF COLOR IN THE CHRONO COUNTDOWN SCALE AND WITH THAT ORANGE SWEEP SECONDS HAND. IT LOOKS LIKE THE PADDLE ON THE CHRONO HAND MAY HAVE BEEN RELUMED AT SOME POINT, BUT EVERYTHING ELSE ON THIS WATCH LOOKS ORIGINAL. CHECK OUT THOSE STUBBY SYRINGE STYLE WHITE SUBDIAL HANDS. IT ALL COMES TOGETHER BEAUTIFULLY ON THIS ONE. THE ORIGINAL CRYSTAL HAS SOME MINOR CRAZING ON IT WHICH CAN ONLY BE SEEN IN CERTAIN ANGLES BUT IS OVERALL VERY PRESENTABLE.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS HUNKA BURNING LOVE IS POWERED BY A 17J DUGENA SIGNED VALJOUX 7733 TICKING UNDER THE HOOD.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING TIME.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE BUT THE CHRONO SNAPS BACK TO ZERO PERFECTLY AND HAS BEEN RUNNING WELL OVER WEEKS OF OBSERVATION.

 

  • THIS DUGENA IS MOUNTED ON A COMFY BLACK FELT MINIMALIST STRAP WHICH IS VERY SPORTY ON THIS OLD TIMER.  THIS ONE HAS  A NICE CHUNKINESS TO IT WHILE STILL SEEMING REFINED AND NICELY PROPORTIONED. THIS WOULD BE A GREAT EVERYDAY VINTAGE CHRONOGRAPH.
