1968 Longines Chronograph Ref. 7414


The caliber 30CH is one of the most celebrated chronograph movements of all time. This Longines chronograph is not only powered by the 30CH but it also has a gorgeous 18k rose gold case with square pushers that collectors’ love. The silvered dial is gorgeous and the red and blue tachymeter and telemeter scales really add something extra to the mix. On top of all this, the watch is accompanied by an extract from the archives, which confirms that it was originally invoiced to the brand’s Spanish agent, Girod, in November 1968. about this watch here.

1940s Breitling Premier Chronograph Ref. 790


You just can’t go wrong with a vintage Breitling chronograph. This Premier reference 790 has all the characteristics that make vintage chronos so appealing. You’ve got a 36mm stainless case and a silvered dial with beautiful Arabic numerals. The bi-register watch is powered by the beloved manual-winding caliber 150, an excellent choice. about this watch here.

1976 Rolex Daytona Ref. 6265


Just when you thought you had seen enough Daytonas, we found this gorgeous example of the reference 6265. But this steel tool watch isn’t just any old Daytona – it has the desirable “Sigma” dial with the T-Swiss-T at the base of the dial. This symbol is found on dials from the 1970s and indicates that the hands and indexes are made of white gold. The 6265 itself is a great Daytona reference, with screw-down pushers and a steel bezel, here paired with a silvered dial featuring black sub-registers. about this awesome watch here.
