ABOUT THIS WATCH:
Armand Dreyfus may not be a household name to the average watch buyer, however his company Dreffa began crafting timepieces dating all the way back to 1874. High quality and attention to detail were a signature of this Swiss brand.
Elegance, sportiness and just down right cool would best describe this piece. The race inspired dials blue accents and fantastic font detail at 12 and 6 set the design apart from so many other Valjoux based chronographs of the time period. Vroom Vroom!
