Here we have a gorgeous, and truly timeless vintage watch that likely dates from the 1950s.
This Hugex Chronograph is still in excellent condition with a flawless case, crystal, dial and hands.
The 35mm stainless steel case is striking because of the so-called lyre or twisted lugs and round, pump pushers. The crown is very likely also still the original large one.
The dial is in great condition without any paint loss or fading, all numbers on the tachymeter scale are still vibrant red and blue. The hands contain radium which has developed a nice, creamy patina. The radium doesn’t glow anymore though.
Inside ticks a Valjoux 92 column wheel chronograph which has just been fully serviced and therefor runs perfectly. Also the chronograph functions as it should and resets crisply to ‘0’.
During service the plexi crystal and mainspring were replaced so the power reserve is also excellent. In fact, this is almost a new watch 🙂
The watch comes with a brown leather strap that really complements this vintage chronograph.
