Mathey-Tissot Valjoux 72 Chronograph
Got to start off strong this week with this incredible vintage Mathey-Tissot chronograph…how can I not? This 1970’s gem is simply gorgeous, with a really nice 40mm steel case that is unpolished and has nice sharp chamfers on the lugs. The dial is the perpetually classic ‘reverse panda’ black dial with white subdials, and it looks to be in perfect condition! The red highlights on the dial match the bold red chrono sweep hand. The countdown diver’s bezel is also superb, with no wear or fading that I can see. Best of all this beauty is powered by the venerably and highly sought after Valjoux 72 hand wind movement, same on used in the Rolex Daytona chronograph. This example also comes on the original signed bracelet, so you’re ready to roll!
