FS: Wittnauer Longines Pilot Professional Chronograph (1960)

Wittnauer Longines Pilot Proffesional Chronograph
Wittnauer History
“Founded in America in 1890, Wittnauer timepieces that were used on trips made by navigators, explorers, and astronomers. They were thought to be at the cutting edge of accuracy and style, and were de rigeur with pioneer aviators in the early twentieth century. They created the first waterproof, shock-proof and anti-magnetic watch, and even helped Commander Richard E. Byrd navigate the first flight over the North Pole in 1926.”

A Wittnauer Professional Pilot's Chronograph with its original JB Champion bracelet in outstanding original condition. Original dial, bezel, arrow hands, pushers, caseback and bracelet are very well preserved. The rich cream color of the vintage luminous arrow hands look great with the backdrop of the dark matte black dial. With the case over 40mm in diameter it really has that popular sporty diver look. The watch is powered by a manual wind tried and true valjoux 7733 and is in working condition, keeping excellent time and all functions work as they should. Movement is clean and recently serviced.
