MARVIN 1940s PILOT CHRONOGRAPH TELEMETER VALJOUX 22 36MM RADIUM BLACK GILT SNAILMarvin
1940s Pilots Chronograph
For auction is a rare 1940s Marvin Valjoux 22 36mm stainless steel manual wind pilots watch with fixed lugs and out of this world original gilt radium dial with telemeter and snail scale. Having unique hands and no logo just legible scales for the specific purpose of aviating. The unique hands are one of the big draws on this watch unique and beautiful with matched original radium. It is amazing to think how long this watch has been in good condition without being messed with. I've had this identical Marvin with a Salmon dial and non-fixed lugs in the past; this one interestingly is unsigned on both dial and movement but is 1,000% original and unaltered, there must have been some unknown reason for that (if only this watch could tell its life story). Watches like this make the pursuit of good vintage watches so intoxicating and addictive.
