Datora | 799 | steel
Sized at 35mm, it features thick bevelled lugs, with the angles still visible - a sign that it has not been over-polished. The stainless steel case is in overall good condition with its original caseback, marked ‘799’. It has square chronograph pushers and a fluted crown.
The dial has a mild patina to it, and applied steel Arabic numerals. A good sign that the dial is original is that the ’31’ on the date wheel is still red. The twelve o’clock sub-dial features the moon-phase and date wheel, the three o'clock and nine o’clock sub-dial features the minute counter for the chronograph and the running seconds respectively and the six o’clock sub-dial displays the hour counter for the chronograph.
Powered by a Venus Cal. 187, it is a manual-winding column wheel chronograph movement with a date and moon-phase module. Being known as a reliable calibre, it features a Glucydur balance wheel and a Breguet spiral mainspring, adding to its overall quality. The movement features an unmarked bridge, which is correct for the Ref. 799. The watch has a power reserve of approximately 44 hours.
Viewings can be arranged in Central London by appointment.
