    I had three watches incoming over the past weeks, therefore I have to sell another to raise some funds.
    I have decided to offer this beautiful (37 mm !) triple signed Record chronograph for sale, as it doesn´t get the wrist time it deserves.
    As most of you might already know, Record Watch Company was a very reputable swiss watch brand respected for the high quality of their watches. The brand was bought by Longines back in the 1960´s and ended its production a bit later.

    The watch:
    case (unpolished)
    37,5 mm diameter without the crown (worn), Fond acier case, rectangular pushers, fantastic looking faceted lugs

    dial

    Bitonal dial with golden roman numerals, outer second ring, outer blue tachymeter 300 ring and "big eye" sub registers. The dial changes colour depending from the light, has some patina, but is in great condition.
    There are similar dial designs from other brands like Longines. Very elegant and original hand set.

    movement:
    decorated Venus 175 column wheel movement, service history unknown, runs good, chrono function as should

    For this very rare and beautiful chronograph I'm asking 1.250 € (net to me without Paypal fees), DHL shipping included. Watch is located in EU, but I will ship worldwide. No returns.

    I have already bought and sold watches here on OF, if any questions feel free to contact me via PM.

    As asked here are two more high res pics that show the real beauty of the Record chronograph.
