Stratton Speciale BNIB Chronograph ETA Valjoux 7750 DLC Coating Unworn Straps/Stainless Bracelet
I am a sucker for blue faced watches with character. This Stratton Speciale is a brand new retro auto styled chronograph with a Swiss Valjoux (ETA7750) 7750 workhorse movement in it.
The square case with highly polished tapered sides is reminiscent of the TV style Chronos of the 1970s. its a brand new modern reinterpretation of those 1970s classics.
This watch was made available in a limited and now sold out production runs with this highly regarded Valjoux 7750 movement with day and date functions. The watch is brand new and unworn and there is not a mark on it. It looks stunning! I removed the stickers when I received it and placed it straight into my safe.
A few comments about this watch.It was only made in a limited production run and has long sold out. This is an opportunity to add a brand new and unworn retro auto styled watch to your collectionThe case was available in a sandblasted finish or the highly polished finish that you see on this watch. The case has a DLC treatment (Diamond like Carbon) which adds a scratch resistance layer (invisible) to the caseThe finishing and the detail on the dial are superb. From the deep blue dial with cream outer tachymeter scale, cream surrounds on the sub dials and the orange accents on the hands and indices and orange sub-dial-hands, the cosmetics on this watch are stunning (IMHO)The case back on this watch is an artwork in itself with a speedometer and textured finish along with all the usual information you would expect to seeWhile the case is a great size at 42mm it wears smaller due to the integrated lugs as it is truly a square watchThe watch is being sold with three straps. The fitted blue leather rally strap with orange contrast stitching and contrast orange backing. The second is a beauty Stratton branded stainless steel bracelet with a brushed / highly polished finish as pictured. This bracelet was designed specifically for this polished case and was only taken out of the outer packaging for the photos
but it still has the original protective plastic intact..I wont even take it off for the pictures. The third strap is a fun blue and orange NATO from Stratton
also new and unworn.The watch dial, crown, case back and strap are all signed Stratton or with the logoThe watch is supplied along with the Stratton strap changing tool in the original case with the original outer sleeve. The original instruction booklet is also included in the sale.
