Good to have her back.

Here is another one. ...  

Wow this one is a time capsule Nico!

I am getting an itch if they also have a black dial version from the same batch of dial design and Valjoux movement. Do you know?

This one looks in mint condition!

I was sure you had one. Seen it so many times.

We should go and see the magic in Villeret soon. September? ...

I would take it in a hearth-beat!

Ah I see!

Didn’t even think about it. Typical me.

Haha thanks man!

I couldn’t if I wanted. Too late. Lost in happy go lucky land.

looks amazing!

Merci Yaco! I knew you would love it.

No non-sense beauty, history and functionality in a very attractive package.

and so much character!

To die for! And still a master in understatement

Here is the movement. He had to change the wheel and enclanchement to the column wheel as well. All parts still available for this Valjoux 72 movement, meaning that these watches can last forever if we take good care of them. ...  


 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : April 22nd, 2022-20:38

Yes Valjoux 72.

 By: amanico : April 22nd, 2022-21:00

She is a beautiful vintage piece!

 By: KCLQMULKU : April 22nd, 2022-18:00
Any photos before her service?

Ah, I thought it was a restoration given your comments about the crown. 😆

 By: KCLQMULKU : April 22nd, 2022-19:17
It is a wonderful watch, and find the dial, the case, the size, and even the wear to be quite enthrawling!

Thanks for the sweet comment. Yes and it is still available at a reasonable point.
