HARVARD CLAMSHELL CHRONOGRAPH VENUS MANUAL 36MM NON-MAGNETIC WATERPROOF 40s DIALHarvard
For auction is a rare Harvard 1940s clamshell chronograph with venus column wheel 15 jewel movement 36mm stainless round pusher case with scales dial. These 1940s early clamshell chronographs are just so fabulous; they offer great utility, perfect size and oftentimes like seen here amazing dials. Opaline dial with red scales and blued hands is standout. It also has 'waterproof' on the dial which is really a relic, a lot of litigation ensured that watch brands wouldn't use that term on their watch marketing (and certainly not on dials). Dial does have patina and isn't perfect but all of the original flare remains and it reads and wears well.
