A rare HABRING Sports Chronograph Carinthian manual wind.
We are pleased to be able to offer another lovely example of Richard and Maria's work, the blue dialed Sports Chrono with the wonderfully hand engraved Valjoux 7734, that was executed by a good friend of Richard & Maria, Florian Guellert, a master engraver who traditionally engraves rifles and shotguns in south eastern Austria. This is one of 10 known watches ever made with this movement, an exclusive to Jackson Square.
The movement HABRING² selected to use for this tiny series of watches, has a huge balance wheel beating at 18,000 semi-oscillations/hour for precise timekeeping. A cam controlled chrono that was designed in the '70's and has been used extensively by several of the well known brands over the years. The "Carinthian" finish makes for a lovely view through the sapphire crystal back. The classical 2 register chronograph layout with the blued galvanic dial sporting silver sub dials for the running seconds and 45 minute chrono counter is one of my most commented on watches.
Comes with all original boxes and papers, second strap (used)
