MARVIN REVERSE PANDA OVERSIZED VINTAGE CHRONOGRAPH LANDERON 49 STAINLESS STEELMarvin
For auction is a Marvin manual-wind vintage racing chronograph from the 60's. Marvin was a small manufacturer of high-quality watches from La Chaux de Fonds and here at Time Titans, we love this brand. The Carrera-style case is way nicer than the original, with the same kind of tapered and beveled lugs, but with a larger size and a wide smooth bezel that firmly establishes it as a unique and desirable watch unto itself. The reverse panda 2-register dial features a 45-minute counter and has the tachymeter printed on the shimmering white tension ring. The watch has a Landeron 49, which is a nicely finished workhorse of a movement with the traditional start and stop actuated by the top button and the reset at 4:00. Believe us, these 49's are very reliable and work better than a lot of the more hyped vintage chronograph movements. The killer looks are enhanced by a period 60's Corfam rally strap. Presented from our personal collection and straight out of Time Titans vault, this amazing timepiece is being offered to you. Quality, looks and rarity are what we love and this piece has it all. We recommend to go for it.
