The "Paul Newman" Chronomaster reedition comes with two versions: the "Panda" and "Reverse Panda", both are powered with vintage and restored Valjoux 23 VZ.

“The Valjoux Cal. 23 VZ is a celebrated hand-winding chronograph movement in the Valjoux 72 family produced from 1916 through 1974. It was replaced by the faster-beating Cal. 236. Implementing Willy Breitling’s dual-pusher design with a column wheel, it remains desirable to this day. The design of the chronograph works, visible at the back, are particularly appealing.

The “VZ” name stands for “Valjoux Zähler”, meaning simply “Valjoux Chronograph.”

The Journey

EPISODE 1 (Sat, Mar 20, 2021)

In November 2020, we started to introduce a crazy idea about a Valjoux 23VZ Limited Edition to our fresh Chronomaster owners. We were working on it for a while and just yesterday, we've bought 55 movements!

We'll use 5 of them for development and prototypes whilet the 50 pieces will be made into limited edition watches. Based on the first owners' feedbacks, we have selected the "Paul Newman" as the best candidate for this Valjoux 23VZ Re-edition.

We will manufacture 25 Panda and 25 Reverse Panda of the Paul Newman such as the versions you can find in the Chronomaster Only book. Prices will be CHF 4'900 / 4'500 € / 5'350 $ and the estimated delivery will be on December, 2021. The watches will be delivered with a Watchfid Digital Dertificate.

The Pre-booking have started with the Owners Club list so if you are in and interested:
