Regular price $3,550.00 Sale

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY IS A SPORTY AND RARE 1960s GENT’S WITTNAUER PROFESSIONAL 6002/5  IN FABULOUS CONDITION RUNNING ON THE FAMOUS VALJOUX 72. SIGNED 4X

 

  • CASE: CLASSY ALL STEEL CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION MEASURING 36mm NOT INCLUDING SIGNED CROWN.  CHECK OUT THOSE CHAMFERED LUGS WHICH GIVE THIS A SPORTY LOOK. 

 

  • DIAL: SIMPLY STUNNING.  SUCH A TIMELESS DESIGN ON THIS CLASSIC. FROM THE GENTLY AGED SILVERY WHITE DIAL TO THE LUMED ARABIC NUMERALS, THE 6002/5 REALLY IS AS DASHING AS THEY COME. THE TRI-COMPAX LAYOUT OF THE VALJOUX 72 HAS SUCH GREAT BALANCE ON THE DIAL. I’M A HUGE FAN OF THE BLUE’D HANDS WHICH REALLY POP AGAINST THE PALE DIAL. THIS IS JUST SUCH A WELL EXECUTED DIAL WITH THE PERFECT HINT OF PATINA 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS CHRONO IS POWERED BY THE CLASSIC HIGH GRADE VALJOUX 72. CONSIDERED TO BE THE GOLD STANDARD CHRONO MOVEMENT OF THE 60s, THESE CAN BE SEEN IN MANY ROLEX MODELS FROM THIS ERA. ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING TIME AND CHRONO FUNCTIONS CRISPLY. THIS ONE HAD BEEN SERVICED BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER IN THE LAST YEAR.

 

THIS BEAUTY IS MOUNTED ON A HANDMADE TAPERED SUEDE STRAP WHICH PERFECTLY RIDES THE LINE BETWEEN DRESSY AND CASUAL.  IF YOU ARE NOT PRIVY TO THE VINTAGE WATCH MARKET, YOU MAY NOT KNOW THE NAME WITTNAUER. IN THE 60s AND 70s, THEY WERE UNDER THE LONGINES BRAND, AND WERE WELL KNOWN FOR HAVING AN ILLUSTRIOUS CATALOG OF HIGH-END CHRONOGRAPHS UNDER THE “PROFESSIONAL” MONIKER. THIS 6002/5 IS ONE OF THE MORE COVETED ONES. I DIG THIS PARTICULAR MODEL BECAUSE THE DIAL IS SPORTY AND HAS THAT MILITARY VIBE WHICH MAKES IT A GREAT CASUAL PIECE. THE SIZE  AND UNDERSTATED DESIGN ALLOWS IT TO BE DRESSED UP AS WELL.  DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS FANTASTIC ALL-ROUNDER.  THIS IS A MUST HAVE FOR ANY SERIOUS CHRONO COLLECTOR.
