Description

This must be one of the most unusual chronographs I’ve come across in awhile and I’m going to get straight to the point. This is only down to one thing- it’s case. This Vetta Antimagnetique Chronograph is sized at an insane 40mm. For a dress chronograph from the 40’s to be sized this large is really out of the ordinary as mind you, back then chronographs were mostly 34-36mm, with 37mm considered ‘oversized’ already.

Cased in an 18k pink gold case, it is stepped and despite its huge size, it maintains a relatively thin profile and sits flat on the wrist, ensuring that it remains elegant. The black glossy dial with galvanic print matches the warmth of the pink gold case and further adds to the desirability of this piece. Furthermore, it features very stylised elongated Art Deco numerals, which I think is just a beautiful detail. Finishing off this watch is one of my dark brown Horween Shell Cordovan straps that really brings out the pink gold.

Flip the watch around and it is powered by a trusty column wheel Valjoux 22 movement. This is a truly rare and well-made piece that you will not come across often.

CONDITION REPORT

This Vetta Antimagnetique Chronograph is in very good condition. The case is in a well-preserved state. It has certainly been polished in the past but a good sign of its condition lies in the caseback, where the gold hallmarks are still visible.

The dial remains glossy throughout with no loss of print on the dial. There are two stains to take note of, one around the 8 o’clock one and a small one around 2 o’clock.

The Valjoux 22 movement is signed and the watch is in full working order. It keeps time well and the chronograph starts stops and rests as it should.
