    Another vintage chronograph comes to my stable, the election valjoux 22 oversized chrono

    Hello
    Another acquisition of Ebay will be added to my collection very soon, it is not a known brand but a missing disappeared brand that in its time had beautiful watches, the brand Election. I pulled the trigger on the chronograph of the 50s for several reasons:
    -elegant chrono with flat pushers and beautiful dress watch
    -diameter of 40.5mm (rare for the time)
    -movement valjoux 22 signed and adjusted 3 positions (bridge marked 3adjs, very uncommon on this movement)
    - Excellent condition case, movement, dial, crown
    - original signed crown
    -45min counter (less frequent than the counter 30min on a valjoux 22).
    I attach photos of my watch and vintage advertisements

    Have a good day
    Sincerely
    Georges

    That is a beauty and congrats. What year do you think it was made?

    Between 1949-1952 is my best guess

    Wow, Georges, that is beautiful! In wonderful shape, too! When I win the lottery, I'm going to hire you to help me find a beautiful vintage chronograph.

    Congrats on the new piece, and thanks for sharing it with us.

    Re: Another vintage chronograph comes to my stable, the election valjoux 22 oversized chrono

    My watch arrived two days ago so here are my own pics. The accuracy was tested but absolutely not satisfying because going too fast +90 sec per day (due to the fact that the watch was never serviced in almost 6 decades) so it went to my favorite second watchmaker who does wonders on vintage valjoux chronograph movements

    It will be great to see how it looks after a good cleaning. It's a beauty as-is though.

    Great watch. I'd prefer a thousand times a watch like this on my wrist, than a modern "heritage" stuff.
