Description

For sale from my personal collection is this amazing Fregatte Chronograph featuring a Valjoux 7733 movement. This watch is of an outstanding quality. Does the model seem familiar? Correct! It is a lot like a Heuer Carrera but at a fraction of the price.
"Heuer, while making some of the finest and most popular racing chronographs of the 1960s under their own name, produced and assembled watches for a number of other brands, including Hamilton, Clebar, Zodiac, Vantage, Buren, Tradition etc... These Heuer-made, other-branded watches were mostly 2- or 3-register chronographs in all white/silver, all black, or a combination of the two. "

part of my private collection. Every watch is described to the best of my abilities. I consider the pictures part of the description and do not accept refunds.
