Wittnauer 2 Register Chronograph c.1940s

When it comes to vintage chronographs, especially mid-century pieces, you often see them in two general classes: clean and attractive, or nearly trashed with wear and damage.

This early Wittnauer chronograph certainly falls in the former grouping. With a lovely aged dial (what some label “patina”) and a robust, desirable Venus 150 pillar wheel movement, it’s hard to find a better styled modest, affordable chronograph than this guy.

Paired with a vintage, period-correct JB Champion Scandia calf leather band, your wrist will certainly look like a blast from the past.

[All vintage watches are expected to function as described. However, due to age and generally unknown service history (unless otherwise stated), these watches may not keep time as accurately as new or quartz (battery) watches. This is completely normal and does not indicate that there is a major problem. Like your automobile, all mechanical watches will likely need to be serviced at some point in time. Please keep this in mind, as there is no guarantee regarding when these vintage watches may need standard maintenance. Every watch sold by Buying On Time is done so with the expectation that it is not currently in need of service or repair, unless noted. We guarantee that all watches sold are accurately described and in the stated condition when they leave our hands.]
