Chrono Sport Chronograph, c. 1960s

ABOUT THIS WATCH:

 

This beauty is a bit of mystery.  There has been some chatter around the forums over the years on this model, but seems not a lot meaty info has surfaced.  It was clearly one of the "cased in France" chronos similar to the likes of Andre Bouchard, Le Jour, etc.  There was a watch supplier called ChronoSport in the late 1960s that featured many awesome Heuer sport models of the time.  They also did have some of their own branded watches as well, so its possible this was one of them.  No matter, just look at the pics, it is fantastic in all resepects and in a nice full 37mm case size that wears oh so well.
