FS: Wittnauer Pre Professional 6002/5, Valjoux 72

Up for sale is a Wittnauer 6002/5 powered by a Valjoux 72. This is the best of this reference I've ever personally had: the dial is almost comically perfect and sharp, the lume's puffy but all perfectly in place, the lume on the hands have taken on an amazing patina, and the glossy white of the dial itself is stunning. The unpolished case has some light marks and scuffs from wear, but nothing terrible. Inside, the Valjoux 72 is running very well, but there's one hitch on the chronograph. It starts and stops fine, and, by and large, resets well as well. However, the minute and second totalizers won't reliably reset to 0 when they're between 6 and 12 (which leads me to believe it's likely a heart-cam issue, and likely just dirt). It's not something that's bothered me enough to get fixed.

Asking $2600. Happy to provide more pictures or references or answer any questions. Will gladly work out shipping and payment method with buyer. Thanks for looking, and to Jeff/CT for the space.
