STEALTH~LATE 60s WAKMANN/MARTINA PANDA CHRONOGRAPH

Regular price $0.69 Sale

FOR YOU CONSIDERATION IS A STEALTHY MARTINA BY WAKMANN VALJOUX 7733 CHRONOGRAPH WITH ONE OF THE MOST RAD DIAL/CASE/HANDSET COMBOS.

 

  • CASE: STUBBY SOLID STEEL CUSHION CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION MEASURING A HEALTHY 37.3mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 42mm LUG TO LUG.  CASE HAS ITS ORIGINAL AND UNTOUCHED FACTORY RADIAL BRUSHING ON THE TOP, AND IT LOOKS MIGHTY SHARP.  I JUST LOVE THE SHAPE OF THIS THING AND THE WAY IT SITS ON THE WRIST.  VERY SPORTY.

 

  • DIAL: THIS DIAL IS WHAT MAKES THIS WATCH A STAND-OUT.  GET A LOOK AT THAT MINTY FRESH SUNBURST SILVER FINISH WITH EXCELLENT PANDA TREATMENT WITH THOSE BRILLIANT GLOSS BLACK SUBDIALS.  CHECK OUT THAT POP OF RED ON THE MINUTE TOTALIZER SUB-DIAL.  THAT'S THE GOOD STUFF!!  I JUST LOVE THAT KILLER GLOSS BLACK TACHY RING AND THOSE TOTALLY SWELL APPLIED LUMED ARABIC NUMERALS.  THE SHOW-STOPPER ON THIS DIAL, THOUGH, IS THAT RAVEN BLACK HANDSET.  I JUST LOVE HOW BOLD THEY LOOK AGAINST THAT SILVER DIAL.  SIMPLY STUNNING.  THIS IS A DIAL THAT I'VE ONLY SEEN USED ON WATCHES PRODUCED BY WAKMANN, AND MAY BE ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHRONO DIALS.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS SPORTY MARTINA IS POWERED BY A 17J WAKMANN SIGNED VALJOUX 7733 TICKING UNDER THE HOOD.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING TIME.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT WATCH WINDS SMOOTHLY, CHRONO WORKS CRISPLY, AND SHE'S BEEN BEHAVING LIKE A TRUE SCHOLAR OVER A SOLID WEEK OF ON/OFF WRIST OBSERVATION. 

 

  • THIS CHRON0 IS MOUNTED ON A THICK MEDIUM BROWN HORWEEN FULL-STITCHED STRAP HAND-MADE BY @WATCHDISPLAY.  WAKMANN WAS THE EXPORT BRAND USED BY BREITLING.  WAKMANN/BREITLING WOULD OFTEN MANUFACTURE WATCHES FOR SMALLER COMPANIES WITH THE CASES AND THE MOVEMENTS BEING STAMPED "WAKMANN".  THIS MODEL WAS PRODUCED FOR A SMALLER SWISS BRAND, "MARTINA".  JUST AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING VINTAGE PANDA CHRONOGRAPH WITH A PERFECT MIXTURE OF SPORTINESS AND ELEGANCE.
