FS: Very Rare Orator chronostop chronograph from 1940's

I'm selling this beautiful and very rare Orator chronostop chronograph. from my personal collection. The watch features a very rare 822 chronostop caliber, I think it was made by Orator but I´m not sure. It functions like a normal chronograph, first you push the upper right button, to sop the chronograph you have ti push the lower left button after you release it the second hand will start to move again and by pressing he upper right button it will fly back to the 12 position and will continue running. I have seen a grand total of 2 of these watches over my years of collecting watches and both of them were mine (of course I cant check out every single page with vintage watches for sale so I'm not saying that there are only 2 out there, this is only my obsevation) The case measures around 36 mm but it looks much bigger thanks to the very thin bezel, and overall the whole case has a very nice minimalistic design. The dial as you can see from the pictures is a reflecting silver silver dial which is changing color depending on the lighting conditions, its hard to exactly describe. The watch is also very accurate and everything works great, (just serviced) Asking price is 850 USD or best offer.
