Why We Love it

There is perhaps no more versatile complication than the chronograph. 

From race cars to rocket ships, boats to battlefields, you are likely to find a chronograph being employed to measure a plethora of tasks and times. From the Greek khrónos (“time) and gráphō (“to write”), a chronograph is a watch that has the ability to record time, generally via the addition of small sub-counters that register minutes and hours. 

Though many storied brands produced notable chronographs during the complication’s heyday from the 1930s through the 1970s, numerous other firms fell by the wayside during the Quartz Crisis, folding completely and disappearing or being rolled up into conglomerates that pillaged their stores of parts. 

The particular chronograph we have here couldn’t be more handsome, simple, and versatile. Produced by Leonidas — which was subsumed into the Heuer brand in 1964 and dissolved in 1985 — it has all the hallmarks of a midcentury tool watch. Indeed, depending upon the strap fitted to its lugs, it can perform admirably as a driver’s watch, an everyday timekeeper, or a dressier chronograph to accompany slightly more formal business attire.

Housed in a 36mm stainless steel case with ‘holey’ lugs, an acrylic crystal, barrel pushers, and a “Heuer”-signed crown, it features a satin silver Tritium dial with dual, recessed subsidiary dials, applied indices, ans a matching ‘obelisk’ handset.

Powered by the hand-wound Landeron Calibre 248 movement, this piece is suitable for virtually any wrist given its nearly perfect sizing.

Versatile, simple, and timeless in its design, this makes for an excellent entry point into not only vintage chronographs, but vintage full-stop!
