FUNKTASTIC~70s WAKMANN REGATE LEMANIA 1341 AUTOMATIC CHRONO

Regular price $0.69 Sale

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY IS A SEXY 70s WAKMANN REGATE LEMANIA 1341 CHRONOGRAPH IN AWESOME CONDITION. SIGNED 3X.

 

  • CASE: HUMUNGOUS GOLD PLAQUE WITH STEEL SNAP BACK CASE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.  SHE MEASURES A MASSIVE 42.5 NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 47.5mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS THING HAS SOME SERIOUS WRIST PRESENCE. THE GOLD IS FULLY INTACT WITH SOME MINOR BRASSING TOWARDS THE LUG TIPS AND SOME SMALL SURFACE HAIRLINES, BUT OVERALL IN SUPER SHARP SHAPE. THE PUSHERS ARE IN PHENOMENAL SHAPE ON THIS ONE, AS WELL. 

 

  • DIAL: IN MY OPINION, THIS IS ONE OF THE WILDEST WATCH DIALS TO EMERGE FROM THE 70s. I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE THE LYSERGIC DRUGS CIRCULATING AROUND THE BREITLING/WAKMANN FACTORIES IN SWITZERLAND WHEN THIS ONE WAS BEING CONCEIVED. NAME A COLOR....IT CAN BE FOUND ON THE ROTATING DAY OF THE WEEK CALENDAR INNER BEZEL RING. THE FINISHING ON THAT GOLD DIAL WITH THE VERTICAL BRUSHING IS SIMPLY FANTASTIC. I LOVE HOW THE PIE-PAN SUNKEN SUBDIALS ADD A NICE SENSE OF DEPTH TO THIS FACE. THE 4 HANDS THAT ROTATE FROM THE CENTER ARE A SITE TO BE SEEN. CHECK OUT THOSE BRIGHT POPS OF ORANGE ON THE CHRONO HANDS....TOTALLY FAR-OUT. 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS WAKMANN RUNS ON THE LEMANIA 1341 WHICH COULD BE FOUND IN THE THE EARLY 70s OMEGA SPEEDMASTER AND SEAMASTER CHRONOGRAPHS AS WELL AS SOME CLASSIC PIECES BY NIVADA, SINN, AND TISSOT. IT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITES MAINLY DUE TO THE CENTRAL MINUTE CHRONO HAND WHICH IS ONE OF THE MOST VISUALLY STUNNING AND FUNCTIONAL SETUPS. WATCH RUNS WELL, KEEPS TIME, AND THE CHRONO FUNCTIONS APPROPRIATELY. DATE IS QUICKSET. WATCH WAS ACQUIRED FROM A COLLECTOR WHO HAD THIS SERVICED IN 11/2016, SO IT SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO.

 

THIS WAKMANN IS MOUNTED ON A HANDSOME SAND COLORED NATO WHICH REALLY BRINGS OUT THE SUMMER VIBES ON THIS DUDE. THE REGATE MODELS BY THE BREITLING/WAKMANN GROUP ARE SOME OF THE MOST OUTLANDISH PIECES FROM THE 70s. IT'S JUST A COMPLETE FEAST FOR THE EYES AND JUST A TOTAL BLAST TO WEAR. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE THE MOST UNRULY CHRONOGRAPH EVER MADE, I GOT IT RIGHT HERE, AND THIS IS A NICE EXAMPLE.
