Pilots Chronograph
Description

For auction is a 1940s Wakman Watch Company 38mm stainless steel Valjoux 22 manual winding case pilots watch. This is one of the first watches the Wakmann watch company made as a New York based watch brand. Note the misspelling of the name Wakmann (spelled here as Wakman with only one N). The brand started out with contracts to deliver watches to the US military and made instruments for aircraft as well as watches for pilots. While not an assigned watch this was likely a pilots watch. The inner caseback shows that the case was made by Auguste Reymond, Tramelan (also known as ARSA) who were themselves a big producer of military pieces. Oversized at 38mm with an incredible case, fixed bar lugs and all steel construction it is not only a historically important watch but a beautiful one as well. Not to mention that at 70+ years old it still wears and functions like a modern watch.
