FS: Bovet/Helbros white dial vintage chronograph *PIC*

Dear all,

I'm doing a bit of a cleaning in the box as I have too many watches I don't wear at all. One of them is this nice little vintage mystery dial Bovet/Helbros. The case is about 34mm+ wide and 40.2mm lug end to lug end. It is chromed with a steel back but it's in a rather good condition - for a chrome watch. The case back says Bovet Freres and Co. SA, which refers to the case manufacturer.

The movement inside it is a manual wind bi-compax chronograph caliber by Helbros. It is a 17-Jewel movement that works and keeps time. Chrono starts, stops, resets but I don't know the service history

The dial has no branding at all. Very similar to the none branded British/Australian/Canadian military watches. The dial is white with no blemishes on it really. It could probably use a cleaning but that's it. The beautiful blued steel hands still have the original tritium (I'm assuming) which glows as it should when lit with a blacklight.

The watch comes on a croc grain dark brown leather strap.

I'd like to get €550 for the watch PayPal (as friends and family) or Bank transfer to my account. If you have any questions please don't hesitate. Thank you for reading.
