ASTRONIC CHRONOGRAPH REF. 0181A - MATTE OFF-WHITE

A collector’s classic, the Waldan Astronic Chronograph is powered by a historic Zenith cal. 3019 PHF. "El Primero" movement. Credited with being the first hi-beat, automatic winding movement to feature an integrated chronograph module, this historic caliber was acquired by Oscar Waldan during the Swiss quartz crisis. After having powered early variants of this model, produced in limited collections for companies like Tiffany & Co., and Ulysse Nardin, Waldan refined his design and thus, the Astronic Chronograph was born. Approximately 2000 pieces were initially created, and less than 20 remain, making it as rare as it is exquisite.
