*Due to the viewpoints made in such a subtle and polite manner to my original listing (see ad below), I have adjusted my description of this watch*
Héli Reymond Le Pont chronograph from the 70’s, with a dial very similar to a Heuer Autavia.
Steel case, 37 mm excluding crown and pushers, 18 mm lugs. The case is in good condition with only minor signs of use. The caseback has a couple of scratches and the pushers are worn. The inside of the caseback is signed Wakmann - I don’t know if this means Wakmann manufactured this watch or if the case and dial have been married together at a later point in time.
Beautiful silver panda dial with brushed texture and orange accents. I don’t know if the set of hands is original to this watch.
Movement - Valjoux 7733, running fine and keeping time. The chronograph sweep second hand starts, stops and resets but the small minute register hand does not move - needs adjustment.
Sold on a black leather band with grey stitching. The other straps are not included.
Price 490 Euro. The watch is in Sweden, worldwide shipping possible. Plenty of references from OTD/Chronotrader available.
