FS: Desotos Panda Camaro Valjoux 72

On offer's a Desotos panda Valjoux72-powered chronograph.

The Camaro case is in excellent shape. It is not marked with Heuer reference or serial numbers, but it's identical to a Heuer case. The brushing and polishing are in very good condition, it's clearly never been polished, and there are only mild signs of wear.

The unsigned Valjoux 72 is running well and keeping accurate time. The chronograph starts, stops, and resets as it should. Service history is unknown.

The dial and hands are, I think, pretty magnificent. My apologies for a photo that loses the steel subdial hands--they're steel, and blend into the dark of the subdials. The dauphine hands have their full lume, and the red lollipop chrono hands is a great accent piece.

Asking $3000 for this. Happy to provide more pictures/descriptions/references, and to work out shipping/payment method with buyer. Thanks for looking, and thanks to Jeff/CT for the space+community.
