Today's offering showcases this impressive and beautiful all-original Arsa chronodato chronograph with exceptional Valjoux 72C movement encased in 18K rose gold.
It features a large aviator-style chronograph look that also possesses capabilities that track the date, day of the week, and month.
Inside this gem is a renowned Valjoux 72C movement, considered by some to be the finest triple-date chronograph recording movement ever made.
Known for its exceptional accuracy and reliability and powering Dato-Compax's for such companies as Rolex, for the six-figure ref. 6036 'Jean Claude Killy', Vacheron & Constantin, and Ulysse Nardin, it ranks in the top-tier of the iconic chronograph movements.
Dato-Compax watches from the top brands have continued to increase in popularity. Which is why affordable Valjoux 72C powered Dato-Compaxes from smaller brands like Arsa are becoming more and more desirable.
It has all of its original parts. Its case is in excellent condition still retaining nice lines and strong markings. Its untouched original two-tone silver dial shows only fairly light aging. And its very fine movement is keeping very accurate time.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new calfskin strap designed for use on its fixed lugs making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
