Wakmann Triple Calendar Chronograph

Why We Love It

Chronographs like this one are what made Wakmann’s name. Aesthetically, it doesn’t hit a sour note. The svelte 37mm case is the perfect size for daily wear.

The white-on-black “reverse panda” color way offers a stark counterpart to the case’s curves in a way that is simply eye-catching.

Internally, this chrono is powered by the Valjoux Calibre 723, a variant of the ever-popular Valjoux 72 that encompasses a calendar complication.

The Story

Among complications, a triple calendar is perhaps the most popular—particularly when combined with a chronograph. Employed by manufactures from all spectrums of the industry, from the top tier (such as Patek Philippe) to the mid-range, the triple calendar chronograph is as ubiquitous as it is visually appealing. Nowhere else is so much information displayed with such grace.

While certain example can trend toward the dressy, those made by Breitling and its subsidiary, Wakmann, are sportier iterations that today’s collectors particularly love.

Starting in the 1940s, Breitling released the Datora, a chronograph that showed both the day and the date as well as the month. The model was a success, and the design was used by other manufactures, including Heuer. But it was under Breitling’s U.S.-based distributor, Wakmann, that the most popular variant of triple calendar chronograph was produced.
