Wakmann Gigandet Chronograph

Wakmann Gigandet Chronograph

Known mainly for their closely association with the Breitling family, Wakmann was the US distributor of Breitling watches from the 1940s to the 1970s. Some watches from this era were actually co-signed as Breitling/Wakmann; however Wakmann also brought their own line of sporting timepieces to the market, often utilizing Breitling's supply chain of high grade components but retailed with entry level price points.

We've had a few Wakmann timepieces come through our shop before, but arguably nothing this cool!  This particular timpiece is a Valjoux 7734-powered chronograph with twin subsidiary registers and a date function at 6:00.  Featuring a colorful, multi-level dial with sub seconds and a 30-minute counter, this cool 60s chronograph is in outstanding original condition, as fresh today as it was new. 

Intelligently sized, beautifully executed, built with quality steel and fitted with one of the most robust Swiss Made manually-winding chronograph movements ever built...all the elements that go into making this affordable timepiece and absolute no-brainer for the vintage chronograph enthusiast!



Steel case is approximately 37mm (excluding the crown). Valjoux 7734 Manually Winding Chronograph Movement.

Overall condition: Case is in excellent condition overall, showing only very light wear from use, with no noteworthy blemishes to speak of. Original dial and hands are in similarly excellent condition - nearly as new. Caseback shows only light marking from age and use. Original pushers and unsigned crown.

Includes two 20mm Black leather strap with contrast stitching and two 20mm Nylon Straps Crown & Buckle.
