I’ve been reading speculation that a new “non-Daytona” chronograph may actually be in the works

Do you think there is really a chance of this at Basel World? It would be a dream watch for me if it was done in an oyster case, monochromatic dial and manual wind like this original from 1965/66.

I think they’d have very high demand if they did!

A design classic that deserves more praise.

But so good on the wrist.

Totally agree!

That’s a really sweet watch! [nt]
