WHY IS THIS WATCH IMPORTANT
This 70s watch is not only beautiful on the outside but is what lies under the hood that calls our attention, is the reliable and renowned Valjoux 7734 movement that makes everything running smooth.
Wittnauer is a name recognized to be a U.S. importer for Longines watches, but there's a lot more than that, they are also creators of some of the most beautiful chronographs of its era. This Professional Chronograph is a great example of their craftsmanship and design. A dark grey dial with a center brushed pattern, together with black contrasting subdials and some of the most interesting thick hands makes a great combo. The Chrono-hand and the date numbers match a nice bright red color.
This watch is in overall very nice condition, the case seems to have been polished sometime in the past,
with minimal scratches throughout the case. The dial is in great condition with a small aging mark around one o'clock, the bracelet is in OK condition with some stretching typical of a watch this old. The crown is unsigned an probably aftermarket.
The watch is in working condition and keeps good time.
