Early vintage chronos from the 1950s are becoming more and more collectible as discerning buyers are looking for something new and unusual. This Rona Sport chrono has the most beautiful glossy black dial with gilt seconds track and tachymeter scale. The hour markers are painted radium, which have acquired an honest patina that is a good match to the hands. The oblong chrono pushers and slim winding crown lend the watch a sleek look that looks amazing on both a straight end ‘beads of rice’ bracelet or leather strap. The watch has been fully checked by our watchmaker and the watch will come on a leather strap of your choice or the beads of rice bracelet.
As motor racing gained in popularity watch manufacturers began adopting scientific scales that enabled not only the time of an event to be measured, but also average speeds reached. The most commonly used scale for motor racing was the tachymeter, which was printed on the outside perimeter of the dial. This allowed the wearer to measure the elapsed time it took to cover the distance of a mile (or km) and see at a glace what the average speed of that run was.
