WCT Ollech & Wajs HOMMAGE of Dodane watch 20/21 chrono - sold
This is an hommage to the Dodane 20/21 Air Force watch made between 1950- late 1970’s and issued to pilots of different branches of the French Air Force. Also Vixen et al
There is an excellent review of the watch history on the FinerTimes watch Site with great photos showing variations and overall pointing out the watch Became too expensive as with all military watches to continue to provide To the services no matter the country
The real deal in this watch today starts about 2500 usd – so this watch is made for those who want to wear something non-collectible but enjoy the style - see the post on the main forum
SIZE This is not like the new very large watches of this time it is 37 mm w/0 crown
And 40.5 mm w/crown. It is very legible and since made these days has Superluminova on the dial and hands. The lug to lug is 46.5 mm and because The watch is housing a Valjoux 7733 or 37 the thickness is 13.7 mm. This is a manual wind as was the original but with a longer reserve ( original = 35 hrs and here 42 hrs) The crystal is hardened mineral glass. The crown is friction set and the case back is screw down.
This was made for pilots since the mechanisms used varied but were mostly Breguet had the “fly-back” function which was great for pilots to get back To zero right away. This hommage does not have flyback!!!!! Or it would too Be much more expensive.
There were several companies who made these watches with different movements among them Dodane, Vixa, Auricoste but,
We have followed here more after the lines and classic appearance that Breguet does so well.
But you have the look, the size, nicely made and
An engraved gmt bi-directional metal bezel. And the price for this specimen Is 875.00 usd + shipping. If you want fly back then pay the extra 1800 dollars - I have one just email
But I think the money would be better spent on another fun watch to wear. The watch has a one year warranty direct to me for defects of workmanship.
It is not a diver – remember pilots do not like water. The caseback is not Engraved no phoney stuff.
This is the first and only one of this watch made – there should be another or two shortly.
