Up for grabs is one of the most popular vintage chronographs on the planet right now. Widely known for its use by NASA, the Wittnauer Professional Chronograph, Ref. 242T, was tested for use in space, a contract that we know eventually go to Omega. Powered by a Valjoux 72 and housed in a 38mm case, this watch has a lot going for it.
This Wittnauer 242T chronograph is in good vintage condition. The case has been polished, but the lugs are still thick, and the original bevels can still be seen. The dial is overall in very good condition, although there is some light fade to the chapter ring between 12-1, 3-4, and 5-6 o’clock. The original lume is still present and in-tact in both the hands and dial.
