FS: Waltham Exotic Chrono - aka “drunk panda”

A "catch & release" for me as I have another piece is calling my name. Selling this really cool 1970’s Waltham Exotic Chrono Ref.2327. This is powered by a cal. TDB-K 1369. Based on the unique configuration of the sub-dials, these are sometimes called a “drunk panda”.

Watch is running well and keeps good time. The service history is unknown. Overall the condition is very good. Size is 37mm, and its all Stainless Steel. It come fitted on a period correct Bear bracelet. Lume is a creamy yellow and all in tact. Dial and hands are vibrant. Case is in excellent condition, with only very slight superficial marks, as you would expect from a watch that's almost 50 years old.

Two things I'd like to point out. First, the hours totalizer is resetting and tracking off very slightly. You can see when reset, it is just off the 6. Starting, stopping & resetting are fine, it likely just needs an adjustment. Second, some very slight markings on the dial between 7 & 8 (just above 40 & 60 seconds in the seconds sub-dial). They do not detract from the piece, but I want to be sure you take everything into consideration!

Overall this is a really cool & rare 70's chono in nice condition.
