"Gigandet" Watch Description 

Introducing the Vintage Swiss Chronograph Gigandet, a timepiece that encapsulates the legacy of Charles Gigandet S.A., a Swiss company founded in the aftermath of World War II. With a rich history, these watches found success in both the USA and Europe, becoming synonymous with quality and craftsmanship.

Crafted with precision and a dedication to excellence, this vintage chronograph boasts a stainless steel case that not only radiates durability but also embodies a refined aesthetic. The case, with a width of 37.5 mm excluding the crown, frames a timepiece that seamlessly marries robustness with elegance. The silicone strap enhances the overall luxury, offering a comfortable and stylish complement to the enduring design.

The year of manufacture, the 1970s, adds a touch of nostalgia to this timepiece, making it a symbol of a bygone era. The mechanical movement ensures the authenticity of its vintage charm, while the watch's water resistance of 20 ATM adds a practical dimension to its appeal.
