Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
Up for sale is a vintage Technos Blue Panda Chronograph from the early 1970s.
While Technos manufactured a whole line of products, their standout pieces have to be their sportier watches such as divers and chronographs. Featuring bold colors and designs but quality internals, vintage Technos models present an interesting value proposition to the modern collector.
Case in point is this early 1970's example. The 38.5mm steel case is unique thanks to its short, almost hidden lugs, and delicate brushed surfaces. The dial, too, stands out with its blue sunburst, contrasting subdials, and magenta outer telemeter scale. Inside beats the venerable Valjoux 7733, a staple of high-quality hand wound chronographs of the era.
Case diameter: 38.5mm (excl. crown)
Case condition: great condition with light, even wear from from age and use and crisp finishes; screw-down caseback shows light tool marks
Lug Diameter: 20mm
Strap Type: 20mm brown leather strap

Caseback and Crown: unsigned crown
