The watch is powered by the H-21 movement (based on the Valjoux 7750). It has classic chronograph looks with features that are both military (numerals) and racing inspired (tachymeter). And at 38mm it is just the right size to be worn for almost any occasion.
The watch is in good condition; I bought it in late 2017 and have had no problems with it. The watch is discontinued now. The smooth, polished bezel attracts scratches easily, and ironically these are not very well seen on photos (mostly surface scuffs). I've tried to highlight them in the hi res photos (See link below). Nothing too dramatic, but basically there's scuffs scattered over the bezel. Rest of the case is near immaculate!
Here is the dropbox link with many hi res photos with different straps . All straps shown in those pictures are included! As stated, box and booklets also included (but not pictured).
A note on the movement. It's very accurate: when I received the watch I timed it and it was +1 spd, I haven't timed it since but it still seems very accurate as I rarely had to reset it. The chrono functions perfectly as well. It does, however, suffer from the infamous Valjoux stutter to some extent. That is, the chrono hand seems to sometimes skip a beat, then sometimes pause, then skip again, pause -- the net result being perfect time keeping, but it looks like a stutter. Again, I'd like to stress it does not affect time keeping at all, it's just esthetic. I've been told it's a simple fix (a screw tightening somewhere), but to be honest it never bothered me, since I could time things fine.
With that all said, asking price is 600 (or best offer) shipped within the EU. I do ship worldwide in principle, but please contact me for shipping costs as I am bound to ship with DHL Express.
Thanks for watching!
