RECORD SPORT STAINLESS STEEL 1940s OVERSIZED CHRONOGRAPH COPPER PATINA DIAL RARERecord
For auction is a Record Sport 1940s stainless steel oversized waterproof two register chronograph with exceptional copper colored dial. Without a doubt one of the favorite pieces in my collection, this exceptional early chronograph is a true gem: the excpetional case is unpolished with some beautiful detail like the unique original chrono pushers, the dial is a copper-reddish patina'd beauty, the movement is high grade and finely finished. This piece dates from prior to the Record watch company being purchased byLongines. Everything about this is just how you want it from the collector standpoint...it is a fine wine well aged. It also has some magic power: looking at this watch just makes me happy, and if you are a real 'chrono guy' it will do exactly the same for you.
