FS: Sandoz PVD Chronograph (Poor Man's Heuer Pasadena)

Looking to sell a Sandoz PVD chronograph. This watch is in amazing condition for its age and is showing very little physical wear. (Truly unusual for a PVD watch from this era.)

Background: This model likely dates to the 1980s and was produced for the European/French market. It has a French date wheel with an inner rotating bezel at 7 o'clock to function as a world timer. Although there is little info about this particular watch on the internet, it appears to be the exact same model that was also sold by LeJour (ref. 7249) as Heuer's off-brand Pasadena model (See "On the Dash - Lejour" for reference). The watch also features the same Valjoux 7750 as the Pasadena the same auto-rotor design (See "On the Dash - Heuer Pasadena Detail" for reference:

History: I acquired the watch around 5 years ago and I believe it was seldom worn or NOS. There is a light engraving on the back with "25 Jahre - RAG". (This translates to "25 Years - RAG" [RAG is a large German coal mining company]) The movement and all complications perform perfect with no issues. No service history is known. Watch comes with black Nato strap and a black pvd bracelet (which may/may not be original to watch).

Specs: 40mm case, 42mm w crowns/pushers, 22mm lugs, 45mm lug to lug.

Asking $1100 shipped to US addresses. Will ship to most countries international for an additional fee. Paypal only please. No trades.
