Wakmann was the United States largest retailer & wholesaler of wristwatches {& pocket} with complications {chronographs , , moonphase amongst others].   They were major suppliers to almost all American Govt; Departments that required such time pieces ,  in particular the U.S. Armed Forces.    
Surprisingly ,  they also supplied several other nations armed forces with such watches.  They did not make watches.  
They sold watches and had input into certain design aspects etc but they did not make watches.

This handsome Vintage Wakmann Britax Chronograph 1950’s oversize 38mm Case  is all quality ,  in especially good condition , all original ,  just about to be fully cleaned & serviced with complimentary warranty added.

The condition of the case in ‘near new’ and all original , never been polished and is an especially solid stainless steel case.  
All stainless steel , extremely solid , sturdy  &  very well made!   

Original pencil hands , register hands , dial surface , case , round pushers & crown  &  of course the  “heartbeat”  being a mint Landeron Cal;248 is also in fantastic aesthetic and functioning condition!

To the ever increasing amount of misinformed collectors who may believe that only column wheel movements keep good time ,  perhaps this 5 seconds per day Landeron may and hopefully will make you reconsider such flawed thinking!

Round pushers , original crown and sold with our complimentary warranty ……. for the buyers peace of mind.
