Sure, Analog:Shift is a business built around the love of watches — mostly mechanical watches. But, in essence, it’s our love for timepieces and timekeeping in general that are the common themes throughout the items we procure. And that includes the love of clocks in general: pocket watches, travel clocks, and more.
After all, in the couple hundred years before the First World War, personal timekeeping was all about the pocket watch, and before that, it was larger clocks that were front and center, horologically. We still believe a good clock — such as a classic travel model from the 1920s or 1930s — has a place in the watch lover’s collection.
This particular timepiece is a vintage Wakmann stopwatch from the 1960s, likely designed as a sports or regatta timer. Housed in a 50mm stainless steel case with an acrylic crystal, a stainless steel ‘onion’ start/stop/reset crown, and a screw-down caseback, it features a gloss white dial with painted black ‘Arabic’ indices, a painted green, yellow, and red 15-minute recorder, and a blued steel handset.
Wakmann, you may recall if you’re interested in chronographs, imported Breitling watches into the United States between the 1940s and the 1970s. Their own watches, which included colorful triple-calendars, are among some of the coolest chronographs of the era. This stopwatch, in turn, is a fantastic remnant of the golden age of mechanical sports timing — we can’t recommend it highly enough!
