Vintage manual wind chronographs with interesting dials are just about the most desirable watches on the market today. Regatta timers, sunburst texture, pulsation scales and, of course, panda’s are on top of the desirable world. These are the kinds of watches, if you can find them below $1,300, that will steadily appreciate in the coming years; even after the mild wear of baseball games, bike riding and beer shotgunning. This example, with its beautiful gold case, crisp white dial and solid black subdials is just about all you could ask for – throw the red paddle chronograph second hand in and now you're just spoiled.
