Here we have a uniquely designed 70s chronograph with a large solid stainless steel case, matte black dial and a date at 6.
It's worth noting that Sandoz (though not widely considered nowadays) have a long history in watchmaking of 150 years.
This design in particular has a solid steel case which instead of using lugs has a cut away section for the strap on the underside. These are known has 'hidden lugs'. This was a popular design in the 70s for watches with large cases.
The dial is a matte soft black which tends to take on a slate grey tone when under light and maintains symmetry by displaying the date at 6.
The chapter ring is a deeper black with white minute increments which also pairs up nicely with the 45 minute register.
This is one of the best designed vintage chronographs we have had in a while and is a joy to have on the wrist.
The case is solid and the movement is a proven reliable workhorse. Screw down case back and plexiglass crystal.
This watch uses the manually wound Valjoux 7734
This has 17 jewels and a 45 hour power reserve.
Frequency of 18,000bph
The brushed steel case shows minimal wear. The dial shows a light patina though all lume is intact. The crystal shows minimal wear and the aftermarket bracelet is also fine.
The movement is clean and keeping excellent time.
