CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY AND APPRAISAL1 YEAR MECHANICAL WARRANTY
Founded in New York in 1885, Wittnauer had a historically close relationship with Longines, acting as their official importer for decades before being outright bought by the Swiss company in 1950. Longines-Wittnauer would go on to distribute LeCoultre and Vacheron watches in the North American market.We love this super stylish chronograph from Wittnauer, probably our favourite from the US company's catalogue, and arguably the brand's most recognizable model. There are a lot of details to love on this striking piece, with a classic 40mm sporty stainless case, round pump pushers and a gorgeous (and unusual) burgundy bezel. The flat black dial features a red regatta timer subdivision in the minute register, and oversize lume-filled hands and lollipop seconds. We have paired the watch with a Molequin jet black suede strap to compliment the matte dial and accentuate the colourful bezel.
