I've decided to sell my Clebar V72 Chronograph. It's about as perfect as can be. If 'Heuer' were printed on the dial, it'd be a 2447SN Carrera (and worth about $10k more). Details are below the photos.
The dial is stunning. It's not silver, but a a gorgeous cream color that just looks amazing in the sun. The black subregisters really pop off the cream dial, and the blue tachy scale around the rim is a nice touch of color. All hands are original, as is the lume. All lume dots around the dial are in place as well. Really can't do much better than this!
The case looks to be unpolished and the lugs are nice and thick. Any marks you see in the photos are the result of the watch being photographed under a 6x loupe.
Plexiglass. No gashes or marks that couldn't be buffed out very easily. Nothing you'd notice without the assistance of a loupe.
All original, as far as I know. Crown is the proper size. Pushers are tight.
This chrono is powered by the super-desired Valjoux 72 movement. Some of these have a 7730 or 7734 movement inside, but not this one. I had my watchmaker open it up to verify it, but I dumbly neglected to take a photo. I was told this watch was serviced shortly before I purchased it about two years ago, and it keeps accurate time - to within 15-20 seconds a day. All chronograph functions are working properly.
The price for this gorgeous Clebar V72 chronograph is $2450, shipped and insured within the United States. International buyers are welcome and I will split the cost of shipping. Payment via Paypal gift option (or local pick-up in the Washington, DC area). The watch is being offered head only.
V72 chronographs in this shape don't come for sale too often. Please e-mail me with any questions. Thanks to Jeff/CT for this space.
