FS: Wakmann 71.1309.70 Valjoux 730 Panda Chronograph Triple Date

CASE: 37mm steel case is in very good shape. Original pushers and signed crown, crystal was just replaced, not many scratches or signs of wear to note. Between the lugs at 12 o'clock, there's some scuffing to the steel; this was mounted on a poorly fit bracelet for years, and there's some wear there. That is, from what I can see, really all there is to note.

DIAL+HANDS: Really excellent, to my eyes. All original everything. Lume plots on the dial have aged to a pumpkin orange. Lume on hands is slightly lighter, but it's clearly not been messed with (under UV light, all plots react similarly, offering a glow, only under the UV light, without picking up any charge). Pictures are a better description here than anything I can offer.

MVMT: Valjoux 730 movement's currently working well and keeping accurate time. The chronograph starts/stops/resets as it should. Day and date advance with the movement, and the top adjuster advances the month (first click) and day (second click) as it should. The bottom adjuster works as well, advancing the date, but the pusher takes between 15 seconds and a minute to pop back out. Again, it works fine, just takes a second. There's evidence inside the caseback of the movement having been serviced in the past; I don't know how long ago that was, and I don't know it's service history at all.

Price is $2500 net to me with worldwide FedEx shipping included. Happy to answer questions, provide references, etc. Thanks for looking, and to Jeff/CT for the space.
