Hello, world! It’s Wednesday, which means we’ve got another batch of vintage watches up for sale. If you’re interested in a classic from Universal Genève, a two-tone Rolex, or an eye-catching Wakmann Triple Calendar, it’s your lucky day!

1960s Wakmann Triple-Calendar Chronograph With Box And Papers

Triple-calendar watches are undeniably cool. There’s something so “vintage” about two rectangles under 12 o’clock showing the day of the week and the month, with a hand pointing to the date on the outer ring of the dial. This Wakmann triple-calendar chronograph is quite the looker, sporting a red chronograph hand, white sub-dials sitting in a black field, and a very cool crescent-tipped calendar hand. The cherry on top: we’ve got the original box and instruction booklet. Click here for more.
