Tropical 1960s Vantage 'Hamilton' Chronograph "Valjoux Cal. 7733"

$ 2,950

There's just something so good about the aesthetic balance and sporty playfulness of a two-register chronograph.

This one was made by Vantage, an under-the-radar brand that was owned by Hamilton's parent company and made some very cool timepieces in the '60s and '70s. 

Featuring a beautiful tropical dial that has evely aged to an caramel color and complemented by its white sub-dials, plus a Valjoux 7733 manual-wind movement beating within, this is a killer piece that'll almost definitely be the only one like it wherever you're wearing it.
