Vintage Valjoux 72 chrono, though somewhat more affordable than the Rolex equivalent Still a super cool piece!
I have a softspot for 70s Autavias, got three of them. The cal 12 Siffert might be the most popular, but to me this manual three-register chrono with Siffert coloring is even cooler.
Wow, appears to be in beautiful condition...nice find! I like the case shape, very 70s but very cool !
Vintage military JLCs...awesome! Really cool thanks for posts in pic.
Obviously they are not mine. IWC also made a version of the Mk XI, and then subsequently versions XII through XVII. The likelihood of finding one of those is much higher since they produced approximately 100x more of them.
Also, since we're talking about it (the mk XI), I just re-read William Gibson's "All Tomorrow's Parties" which has a whole slew of references to really cool watches. It's where I first learned about the MK XI, which plays centrally into the story. Very cool read for that aspect alone, and a stellar book overall.
