Wakmann Triple Date Chronograph - ref. 72.1309.70 (1960s)
Wakmann Watch Company is an American brand founded in 1946 that became famous through its partnership with Breitling, for which the company retailed Wakmann brand watches designed for the American market. The Triple Date Chronograph is surely the brands most successful model. Equipped with the Valjoux 730 (a more high-performance version of the Valjoux 72 at 21600 vph), it features not only a chronograph but also displays the date, day and month, making it the perfect tool for daily use. Despite all these complications, the magnificent panda dial remains balanced and understated.
