Other: If you're looking for a unique and rare conversation piece, this undeniably cool Wittnauer "Pert-o-Graph" with slide-rule bezel would be an exquisite choice. HODINKEE recently sold a similar example and appropriately referred to it as "a watch built for the most advanced minds of the time. This slide-rule equipped Wittnauer has a very academic look that sets it apart. Developed in the 1960s, critical path theory in project management identifies the series of tasks needed to complete a project and prioritizes the tasks that require completing in a certain order to expedite the project, creating a critical path. The Pert-o-Graph is a slide-rule style computer that calculates critical path. Luckily, the Wittnauer "Pert-o-Graph" example we have here is fitted with a more standard and more usable slide-rule bezel." We absolutely love the white dial with its "graph paper" motif and matching black inlay on the hour markers and hands. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a nice example of this watch. As an added bonus, the Wittnauer C11KAS self-winding automatic movement was just completely overhauled by our watchmaker.
