Regular price $0.00 Sale

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS REALLY COOL 70s ELBON RACING CHRONOGRAPH RUNNING ON A RECENTLY SERVICED VALJOUX 7765

 

  • CASE: CRISP AND CLASSIC CHROMED CASE IN UNSPOILED CONDITION.  THE MIRRORED FINISH IS IMPECCABLE WITH SOME FAINT DRAWER MARKS .  THIS SPORTY GUY MEASURES A NICE 37.5 ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 43mm LUG TO LUG.  SUCH A SHARP AND NO-BULLSHIT DESIGN WHICH WEARS COMFORTABLY.  NO SIGNS OF WEAR IN THE FINISH OF THIS CASE...JUST SOME MINOR SCRATCHES ON THE CASEBACK.

 

  • DIAL: HANDSOME AND VERY LEGIBLE WITH SOME SUBTLE POPS OF FUNK. I LOVE THE  7765 LAYOUT WITH THE MINUTE TOTALIZER AT 12 AND THE RUNNING SECONDS AT 9. THAT SILVER DIAL HAS A LIGHT VERTICAL BRUSHED FINISH WHICH REALLY GRABS YOUR ATTENTION IN ALL LIGHTING CONDITIONS. CHECK OUT THAT HINT OF COLOR IN THAT NAVY BLUE SUBDIAL WITH THAT RED 5 MINUTE SCALE. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS CHRONO IS POWERED BY A HIGH BEAT VALJOUX 7765 WHICH BEATS AT A SPEEDY 28800 BPH VERSUS THE SLOWER 18000 BPH RATE OF MANY OF ITS CONTEMPORARIES.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME.  THIS ONE HAS BEEN SERVICED IN THE LAST 6 MONTHS AND IS READY FOR ACTION.

 

  • THIS ELBON IS MOUNTED ON A HARVEST GOLD COLORED SUEDE STRAP WHICH LOOKS SEXY ON THIS CHRONO. THIS ONE IS A BLAST TO WEAR AND CAN DO DOUBLE DUTY AS YOUR LAP TIMER ON THE RACE-TRACK OR YOUR DRESS WATCH UNDER A SPORTS COAT.
