FS: Rare opportunity to buy a Rodania Geometer Valjoux 72 on BoR

If you don't know about the Geometer, take some time today to read about it online. A watch you will only ever see offered anywhere once every couple of years. Only a handful of well-known collectors own these. Offering my own ultra-rare Rodania Geometer, the watch introduced in 1954 widely seen as the one that inspired the Omega Speedmaster 2915 later introduced in 1957. I am only aware of three nice Geometers that have sold since 2017, plus some pretty ragged examples. You can research online the results of two sold in Sothebys auctions and one from Miller & Miller Auctions in Canada. This one is unique in that it comes with a Rodania signed Beads of Rice bracelet not featured on any Geometer sold recently.

Research this watch, it's fun reading about the theories related to the Omega CK 2915 famous Speedmaster.
