Christmas came early to me this year. I had a chance to pick up this beauty for a very reasonable price. It's a Baume & Mercier chronograph (Valjoux 72C), all 18k rose gold! It keeps time but the movement still needs to be overhauled, as the chrono functions are sluggish in returning, and the month is stuck. The reference number on the back of the watch is 3902. I did a search and found a watch claiming to be from 1961, but I think this may be older. Any info would be appreciated! :)
Here is a pic without the band (I replaced the beat up band with the one above):
It really is a beauty, and I love the size.. around 36mm without the crown. I was looking to get something different for myself as a X-mas present, and this one just fell into my lap at the right time!
Anyone else have an early X-mas present to showcase?
