    No one can deny the high-level of craftsmanship and mastery Swiss watch manufacturer Geneva Sport demonstrated when creating the present watch. The firm is recognized most notably for their smaller sized in-house chronograph movements.

    The chronograph’s mesmerizing multi-tone dial features several concentric rings in alternating silvered tones, highlighted by its outer blue tachometer scale. The satin-brushed case finishing creates a somewhat matte-like effect, which contrasts wonderfully with the mirror-polished bezel.

    The single-button chronograph mechanism adds a very attractive, sporty element to the watch, by allowing the user to effortlessly control the start, stop and reset functions with the press of a single push piece found integrated into the winding crown. Its pure 1930’s look and ability to measure speed makes this the perfect addition to any outfit for a day at the racetrack or weekend sporting event.


An extremely rare and highly attractive stainless steel single-button chronograph with multi-tone silvered dial, blue tachometer scale and bracelet.
