Other: Looking for an affordable vintage panda chronograph? Look no further than this gorgeous stainless steel Vantage 449. For those that are not familiar with Vantage as a brand, they are most known for their connection to Hamilton Watch Company. To compete with Swiss companies in the U.S. market, Hamilton set up a holding company and created a specific watch division to diversify operations and expand its reach. The division included the original Hamilton Watch Company (50% Swiss owned) and Vantage among other brands. Hamilton's parent company also purchased Standard Time Corporation to make watch movements for Vantage.
