A hand wind, vintage style chronograph with tachymeter and a legendary movement for a phenomenal value!
This Pierre Paulin date-chronograph is designed to honor many of the most famous racing chronographs of the 60's and 70's, and is built around a Swiss designed movement with German designed gooseneck upgrade that fine tunes the accuracy of the piece. Many chronographs at this price point use battery powered movements that don't give the smooth moving sweeps of a mechanical piece like the Pierre Paulin.
The Seagull ST1901 TY2901 movement is in every Pierre Paulin chronograph, and is run through strict Merkur Technical Support (MTS) adjustments to ensure a quality piece. Merkur is the parent company of Pierre Paulin, which holds hundreds of patents and copyrights, and does business in over 40 countries and regions throughout the world.
