Vintage 1940s Cyma WW2 Era Chronograph Valjoux 22 Ref 400L Gold Plated 38mm Gents Wrist Watch. A wonderful rare Cyma oversized 38mm gents chronograph from the 1940s fitted with the superb Valjoux 22 calibre movement Ref 400L that is working and keeping good time for its age. The chronograph function works though for some reason struggles when it gets to the 55 seconds position, also the chronograph sweeping seconds hand is not perfectly straight and resets to the 58 second position so the watch would benefit from a service. The wonderful face has age related wear visible in the photos.
The hands have some minor tarnishing, the crystal is in excellent condition, the gold plated case has some plate wear exposing brass base metal underneath and small marks in places, the large bubble back rear caseback has some faint marks in places. It is fitted to a stunning brand new red lizard print leather watch strap.
It measures approx 38mm excluding the crown by 44mm from lug to lug and fits a 20mm strap. Please view photos carefully as they form part of the description. Please view my other listings.
