Gents 1940s Record chronograph wrist watch.
The watch has a Swiss 17-jewel movement, a Valjoux 22, which is working nicely. The movement is stamped Record Watch Co and also RWT for Record Watch Tramelan.
The watch measures 35mm diameter excluding the winding crown, buttons and lugs. The bezel and the case back are stainless steel while the centre is plated. The case has light surface marks but overall is in good condition. The inside of the case back is signed Record Watch Company.
The lens is in lovely condition.
The signed dial is in its original finish, blued steel hands (the infill has come out over the years), and two subsidiary dials, one for constant seconds and the other records up to 45 minutes. The chronograph is started and stopped by pressing the top button, and then the bottom button to re-set. The main chronograph hand re-sets just a fraction to the left of zero.
A new leather strap has been fitted.
The watch comes in a new presentation box.
