Hello all, I'm mirroriung this from the Breitling forum.
first time poster and also seemingly soon to be watch geek. But to the point. I recently uncovered a watch that I bought myself with the xmas money and many lawns when I was a kid (think mid 70's). I had forgotten all about this watch and was surprised to see that it still seems to work fine. I plan to get a repair on the band and wear it. Problem is I can't find anything out about it (ergo the budding watch geek comments). It is a Wakmann chronograph with a screwback and two subdials at 3 and 9 o'clock. on the back is the wakmann "sailboat" thing, INCABLOC, and a handstamped "1437" which I assume is a movement? the watch is stainless and has a light face with the black subdials. I will attempt to get an image soon but was hoping someone would go AH HA!
My research thusfar has indicated that Wakmann was either a US sub of Breitling or a importer that was later bought out.
anyway thanks for your thoughts
