CWC Limited Edition Valjoux 7733
From the early 1970s to the mid 1980s, CWC produced the military mechanical chronograph, supplied to RAF (6BB) and Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm (0552) pilots. The movement was the Valjoux 7733, which proved to be extremely reliable and durable given the harsh conditions they endured on the wrists of pilots flying aircraft such as the Vulcan, Tornado, Lightning, Harrier, Jaguar, Buccaneer, Hawk, Chinook and Sea King.
Over a four year period, we have re-commissioned these new old stock original 7733 movements in Switzerland until ready for sale - 100 watches only, with new original movements, dials, hands, and crowns. Each watch will be supplied with a Sapphire exhibition caseback to display the intricate workings of the vintage movement.
The Presentation box includes an original solid type caseback, presentation coin and choice of straps.
As standard, these watches come with new Luminova dials and hands (Vintage Tritium will have only a faint glow that fades quickly). If you would like new vintage Tritium hands and/or dials, please contact us to discuss.
Limited to 100 pieces due to the availability of the original 7733 Valjoux movements.
One of the first contracts CWC secured was the RAF 7733 chronograph.
Serial numbered 001 - 100 / 22 to coincide with 50 years since the company was founded to supply military timepieces to all branches of HM forces.
