    Vintage two sub-dial chronograph suggestions

    Hello WUS,

    I am a fairly new member looking to add to my very limited watch collection.

    I am looking for watches that are either vintage or vintage in appearance that have two sub-dials. I am a fan of Heuer Autavia's, Camaro's, and Carrera's; Hamilton Pan Europ's; Bremont Alt1-C (I know it is blasphemy to some to throw this in the mix); and Breitling chronograph's. I realize the Bremont is a pilot's watch which is not a plus or minus for me.

    More specifically, I was just looking to expand my options for a similar watch to those above based on WUS' suggestions. I am a fan of black or white dials with a red hand(s) as well - panda or reverse. Panda isn't the end all be all, but I find the contrast very attractive.

    My desired price point is $1200 but in the near future, I will be willing to stretch up towards $2000 (I realize this is likely necessary).

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Best,

    Angus

    Vintage Seiko 6138 Chronographs are awesome. They come in several color schemes including a Panda dial.

    Omega Speedmaster as well, either new or vintage.

    Thanks guys. I have looked at Speedies but they tend to be a little expensive. I've got an Omega so I'm tempted to branch out. I do like the panda, but I'm not huge on Seiko. Anyone else have any suggestions?

    Look for vintage chronographs with valjoux 7733 in them...
    There are many like Nivada, Bulova, Wakmann, LeJour, Kienzle etc... (google valjoux 7733).
    Or you can go Russian and look for poljot movement like Okeah.

    If you can deal with a hybrid quartz/automatic movement (quartz underlying timekeeping but a smooth chrono second hand), then you should definitely check out Autodromo's Prototipo:

    Hodinkee did a nice review of it a while ago. They look great, have a cool retro style, and arguably offer the best possible combination of quartz and mechanical parts. The only downside is that several of them are basically an Autavia "homage."
