I have recently acquired a vintage 1960's 2 register Wakmann Chronograph. However upon closer inspection the swiss made movement marked wakmann watch co. is a basic 7 jewel stop watch movement.
Apparently Wakmann produced this "swiss pilot stopwatch". It is all original and from my research it is very rare. The case and Dial are just gorgeous. My question is should I purchase a Valjoux 773 or Venus 188 movement and swap it out?
I really wanted a REAL vintage Chronograph. I did not pay a super amount of money for this watch I love how it looks. However I was hoping to get a true Wakmann with a quality movement for my collection. This is my first vintage chrono and I'm wondering if I should invest the money in this watch to upgrade the movement or just leave it as is and get another vintage chrono that is a genuine chrono with flyback / reset.
I would appreciate all your feedback to let me know what would be the best course of action.
