    Fine old style chronograph w.w.

    Not sure of right forum category for this. Interested in any pro or con comments. Being old fashioned type I have acquired and sold without loss several Speedy Pro and other big ones. Prefer the old style compact Chronos. Traded a good p.w. for this one. Originally sold in 1998. Unfamiliar with Marcel. Has 7750 Valjoux mvt. Nicely finished. 4 atm waterproof with screw down buttons and crown with sharkskin. Only 37mm outside diameter. Sapphire back and front. 14 years old now. Bet few made; nice little ones I prefer seem to be unpopular.

    Interesting that we are in an era when a 7750 based wristwatch is considered small-ish... LOL

    Marcel added the moonphase and rim-date complications. Nice casing and dial.

    This classical style attracts me too -- indeed here are my Candino Twins: a 7750 and a 2892-A2 with added complications. Sometimes I wear them on right and left wrists -- they seem a matched set

    Indeed a couple of nice ones, I would not know about otherwise, elaborate but practical.

    Beautiful watch. Nice pick-up! Not sure how good that pw was, but you probably did very well.

    A quick search turned up a few JM moonphase versions with very hefty pricetags. $2K and up.

    Hi, my name is Dave, and I'm a Chronoholic. It's been almost a XXXX day since my last chrono buy. I'm still going through DTs, and I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out.

    Not a steal. We agreed on valuing traded Agassiz chronograph in 16s g.f. U.S. case $1k. Thanks for valuing. When new JM was $2k.

    Should be obvious which of 2 below I kept.

    Well, the market may value the Breitling more but I love that Lemania. 18K??

    2and 1/2 year thread I neglected to respond to. Glad to know we are yet both survivers. 18k and ss for the good Brietling. I sold for profit. Acquired at garage sale for $1100. Keeping Marcel chrono. Are they still active Swiss or German distributors? The 14k gold cased chronometer marked Lemania was garage sale $40. purchase from son of original owner. I find only one auction sale for it at best Patek equivalent level. artbissell
