Arole Chronographe Valjoux 7733

kr 14.850,00


Very attractive numbered vintage chronograph with Valjoux 7733 movement. 38,5mm. ca 1970. Sturdy, high quality stainless steel case with long lugs, “Waterproof” to 10ATM (100m). Fitted with a (new old stock vintage) 19mm lug width rubber band. Box (unsigned but the original) and copy of “Certificate Guarantee”. Rare, possibly from a batch of as little as 50. The movement appear quote untouched. Now fully serviced with our 12 months warranty. A lot of functionality is built in to this chronograph: The red/pink inner Telemetre scale for measuring distance to sound events (explosions, start guns or thunder for example use the fact that sound travels ca 333m/s or 3 sec pr km), tachymetre scale for speed and rates of production and 10 and 5 minutes regatta start countdown (the red sector counting the last minutes before start is luminous). In addition, the usual chronograph measuring of up to 30 minutes . To top this the bidirectional rotatable diver´s bezel shows hours and minutes. “Made by Alfred Rochat et fils Horlogers, Les Bioux, Suisse”. It is a beautiful, colourful watch with a charming “lollipop” seconds hand. The lume on this watch is spectacular, even shining for a little while after the uv-light has been removed (please look at the last picture :)).

Not in perfect condition (mint) though, so the small things you should know are: Bezel has faded, there is slight lume fallout on tip of lollipop chronograph hand and you can just spot a very slight bleeding off the right edge of the left subdial.
