Dating this Watch
It's hard to date this Watch exactly but I feel this Watch is around 1965-1970.
Super Quality Valjoux Calibre 7733 Manual Wind Chronograph Movement, with 30 minute Recorder.
This Calibre of Movement uses the Top Pusher to start/stop the Chrono function and the Bottom one to Reset the Chrono.
The Movement is wonderful and Clean whilst ticking away strongly and keeping very good time.

Awesome Cool Blue Tritium Yachting, with Tachymeter, Dial
T Swiss Made T
The Dial is in beautiful Vintage Condition, with Burn Patina present around most of the hour Indices from the Tritium Lume.
It is such a lovely Colourful Dial, a real nice treat from the Usual guys out there.
This is the original Untouched 50 or so year old Dial that left the Limit Factory back in the 60s/70s and I am a real fan of these Unmolested Dials, especially in this sort of wonderful condition.
THIS IS NOT A REDIAL!!!!
Case and Bezel
Quality all Stainless Steel Case.
The Case is in Excellent Vintage Condition for the Nature of this Vintage, a few Age Related marks on the usual places, but nothing major, edges still nice and sharp.
Stainless Steel Screw In Case Back in Very good order. The Caseback markings have been perfectly preserved by what seems to be the Original Sticker.
Gorgeous Blue and Green Bi-Directional Bakelite Bezel is in Very Good Order with a very small crack in the middle of 3/4 but to be honest you can barely see it unless you go searching for it.
Case approx. measures in at:
Diameter with Crown: 41.5mm
End of lug to lug: 46.4mm
Lug Spacing: 19mm
This Case was rated at 20 ATM back in the Day, it is now a Vintage Timepiece, it has NOT been tested for Water Resistance and if you wish to Submerge this Watch, you will need to have the Watch Professionally Resealed before doing so!!
Hands, Pushers, Crystal and Crown
Original Handset, in Excellent Vintage condition.
Original Pushers in great nick, functioning nicely.
Original Unsigned Screw In Crown, in super nick and Screws strongly to the Case.
What I believe to be the Original Crystal is in very good order, with a few age related marks but nothing major at all.
On what I believe to be the Original Bracelet, although it is unsigned so hard to say for Definite. The Bracelet is a very comfortable and Cool vintage Design, it compliments the Watch Perfectly.
PLEASE NOTE THIS BRACELET FITS UP TO APPROX. 7.25in WRIST WITH NO SPARE LINKS.
