This is an amazing example of the 1960s vintage manual-wind three register chronograph. It's a Paul Portinoux with an all stainless steel case and 17 jewel manual-wind Valjoux 7736 Incabloc movement signed by J P Pingouin.
The dial is fantastic and the hands are perfect.
The bezel is bi-directional and in very good condition for its age. The crystal has just been polished out to very good condition.
The screw-down case-back reads:
WATER RESISTANT 20 ATMOSPHERES INCABLOC SWISS MADE ANTIMAGNETIC ALL STAINLESS STEEL
The watch keeps dead-on time, the chronograph functions work perfectly, and the hands zero out as they should!
As with most watches of this age, it might benefit from cleaning and lubrication.
The watch is shown on a generic black nylon strap, but it has been replaced with a new tropical silicone strap.
Over-all good to very good condition . . .
$799 plus actual carriage.
