W3 7760 Racing Chronograph

This W3 7760 Racing Chronograph watch was designed and executed by my friend Chris Pappas of Wilson Watch Works in Wilson, NC.  The watch was conceived and created using a chronograph case made for a Valjoux 7750 chronograph and modifying it for a desirable Elaboré Grade Valjoux 7760 chronograph.  Chris took the design-build further with a double bead blast and the installation of a special carbon fiber dial.  The watch was originally purchased by a collector and pilot in North Carolina who traded it in on an Aviation CSAR Marathon chronograph watch.  Even though the watch had not been worn, Chris inspected it and applied his Certified Pre-owned inspection regimen to it.  He decided to further enhance it by adding a sapphire display back which really does make this a special custom timepiece.
