For sale from my personal collection is this amazing seventies Sabina Racing Chronograph featuring a Valjoux 7733 movement.
The watch has an eye catching bright sunburst dial which is unpatinated, a red chronohand, blue and red tachymeter scales, applied indices and recessed subdials.
The case is chromed steel, this type of case hasn’t been made in stainless steel.
The watch has got a domed acrylic crystal which is scratch free.
It’s a bit like a poor man’s Heuer Carrera or Omega DeVille Chronograph with rectangular pushers.
Sabina was a small watch manufacturer from Germany which made watches with Swiss movements, this watch has got a Valjoux 7733 handwinder ticking inside.
Diameter without crowns is 35,6mm, with crown 37,2mm, 11,9mm thickness, which is the regular size for a sixties/seventies chrono, since the bezel is really thin (thinner than a Heuer Carrera for instance) it wears bigger than the numbers suggest.
The watch keeps good time, the chronograph starts, stops and resets like it should and the pusher action is crisp.
The watch comes on a matching, new 18mm black leather rally strap
My price is euro 395,- excluding shipping
Payment via bank transfer or PayPal
I am located in The Netherlands
I am a collector who sometimes sells a watch from his collection, I am a regular at Uhrforum, WUS and the dutch "horlogeforum", here is some feedback:
I am not a professional watch seller and this watch is part of my private collection. This watch is described to the best of my abilities. I consider the pictures part of the description. Please note that vintage watches are not as precise functioning and waterproof as a modern day watch. Please ask any questions beforehand and I will answer them.
