For sale is a good condition stainless 43mm by 48.5mm vintage Favre Leuba Geneve Sea Sky Chronograph. The Croton is a vintage ‘barn find’ that is being in ‘as is’ condition without any warranty.

The exact production date of the 497 is unknown, but it was most likely produced in the 1970s, and does not come with any box or papers. The Favre Leuba features a polished steel cushion shaped case with a bidirectional blue elapsed time bezel. The Sea Sky is mounted on a generic blue shark skin strap with a polished steel tang buckle. The Favre Leuba features a grey dial with painted luminous tan stick hour markers, white hands set with tan luminescence, and silver subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. The movement used in the 497 is the manual wind Valjoux 72, it is running, and functioning as it should. It is worth noting that the Valjoux 72 is extremely iconic, as it is the movement which was modified by Rolex for use in their four digit reference Daytonas. Overall the Favre Leuba is in good condition, as the case still contains its blended finish and sharp chamfers.

Shall deliver for $4,600 or best offer.

All timepieces come with a 7 day ‘no questions asked’ return period- will issue 100% refund as long as the timepiece is returned in the same condition in which it was shipped out.
