Other: Here at watchsteez.com we take great pride in sourcing honest and original examples - This Wakmann triple calendar chronograph is no exception. We absolutely love this particular model and believe that it is one of the most underrated and under-priced vintage chronographs on the market today. It houses a high-grade movement based on the legendary Valjoux 72, but with triple calendar functions and a higher beat rate (21,600 BPH) for improved accuracy. It's hard to beat this watch if you've got a budget under $3,000.
