Wakmann 14-35 Chronograph Valjoux 7734

$1,695

Pre-Owned Wakmann 37mm Chronograph with Valjoux 7734, White Dial, Leather Strap, Ref 14-35

This vintage (1970’s) Wakmann panda racing chronograph is in very nice shape.  Wakmann was a US based watch maker with the rights to import Breitling watches under the Wakmann brand name. This watch is nearly identical to the much more expensive Breitling Datora 592.

This Wakmann Chronograph houses the Valjoux 7734 movement with date at 6 o’clock, 45 minute sub-dial and red chronograph center hand, which starts, stops and resets correctly. Inside of case back is marked Gigandet. The case and pushers show some minor scratches as expected with age, but no significant wear on the finish or corrosion.  The Watch also appears to be unpolished as the radial sunburst finish is in excellent condition. The silver dial is pristine, with a sharply defined blue tachymeter scale on the perimeter. The hands, markers, and crystal are also in excellent shape.  The case measures 37mm in diameter without the crown and is attached to a new black leather strap.

Description

In an effort to protect American watch manufacturers, the USA passed a Swiss Watch import act that put limits on the import of Swiss watches.  Products from Switzerland could still be sold in the USA but the movements had to be sent to the USA and combined with cases by American companies.  Wakmann was a USA company that imported Swiss components for sale into the USA.  The company was purchased by Breitling, which meant that many Wakmann branded watches were largely manufactured by Breitling.  Wakmann continued to market it’s own watches in the US and specialized in Aviation style watches.  The result is that many models appear similar in design and contain similar components but have different brands.  At times, there may be a different brand name on the dial, movement, and caseback.
