Features: Stunning original luminous dial with unique patina has aged from white to an incredible salmon color; original luminous "alpha" hands; original blued-steel register hands; 30-minute chronograph recording capability; blue tachymeter scale for timing the average speed of a moving object (i.e. during racing applications); red telemeter scale for timing the distance that an object travels over time (i.e. artillery timing during military applications); sharp solid stainless steel case with screw-down back; domed acrylic crystal

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and light use; original dial has transformed to an incredible salmon color with all luminous plots in tact and aged to an attractive yellow hue; original "alpha" hands with all luminous material matching and in tact; original blued-steel register hands (yes, the small sub-register hands are supposed to be different); solid stainless steel case is razor sharp and appears to be unpolished while retaining its original edges and bevels; crisp caseback with a few very minor toolmarks

Other: If you're looking for a unique but subtle vintage watch, look no further than this superb 1960s Wittnauer chronograph. The dial on this watch was born white and has aged to an incredible salmon color throughout; surely it is one of a kind. And who doesn't love a good salmon dial chronograph in a crisp stainless steel case? The "alpha" hands are fantastic. This watch has everything going for it and we can personally guarantee that you won't find another one exactly like it!
