The chronograph brother of the 8123-6280, the 7A38-6020 sports the same Giorgetto Giugiaro inspired styling and unusual dark brown/grey PVD coated case and bracelet as its time/date only relative. Offering an interesting design and funky colourway, this line of watches are fairly rare and don't often become available, and when they do the PVD coating is generally very worn.
This particular example is in exceptional, museum grade condition and is virtually new old stock. Both of the case back stickers are intact and show no signs of peeling. The watch also comes with its original hang/swing tag and the bracelet tag which would have been clipped on when it was displayed in the dealers shop in the mid '80s. It is an absolute privilege to sell this watch and I don't expect another to be found in the same condition!
