I propose you this Mathey-Tissot Chronograph monthly calendar moon phase of the Fifties, dimensions 38mm. Attention it is about the caliber 88 Vajoux and not the 72C, which does not have visible moon phase as on the Rolex Date-Compax brief 6036 and 6236. This caliber is one of the most beautiful and sophisticated of its time. It offers the same complication as the famous 1518, without the perpetual calendar. This watch with its original dial is a bomb and a rarity that my collectors know. It is for the future collectors a watch to make enter in collection of urgency. Because during this period 1300 specimens of the movement 72C will be produced by Valjoux, with several digressions will be produced of which Valjoux 88 which is the most complete and the most achieved of the movements of the manufacture.
On the wrist this chrono is all in harmony, and in poetry. It is perfect on all wrists. Ultra legible, and easy to use. This Astronomical chrono is guaranteed for one year.
A little history: Mathey Tissot is a prestigious watch manufacturer dating from the late 18th century established by Edmond Mathey Tissot in Les Ponts de Martel in the canton of Neuchâtel in Switzerland. In 1886 he started by specializing in watches with complications, such as repeater watches. This house produced many chronographs that won many awards.
In 1914 Mathey Tissot was represented at the Kew Observatory and presented six chronometers all rated in class "a". During the Great War the company supplied the US Army Corps of Engineers with large quantities of precision chronographs.
a very nice and rare Chrono Astronomic from the 50's, with Valjoux 88, mechanic wound, size 38mm, this watch is fully original and guarantee one year.
