I picked up this Wakmann Yesterday. It is working very well and counters return to zero. Pretty good shape. I paid 450 US.
Doesd anyone know which model this is? No info on the back except “Stainless Steel, Shock Protected” and “SWiss Made”.
I think I did OK on the price. Do and of you know what this is? It certainly has a lot of 70’s vibe
Thanks

Not sure if it has a model name.
Pretty sure it has a Lemania movement though.
It's most likely 70s vintage.

Very nice watch.
Not sure of the model but it probably houses a Valjoux Mvt

The guy who sold it to me was think a 72 mvmnt which I think is an old Valjoux. I sure like it

It might have the Valjoux 7734 because of the date.
I think it's a time when Wakmann was owned by Brietling, and Brietling shipped movements to the US for use in Wakmann watches. There should be an import mark on the balance bridge if it was made for US consumption. I think they were signed on the case and movement also.

Or it could be a Landeron 189

It sure as hell isn't a Valjoux 72C. That's the best movement Valjoux ever made - it's got a column wheel - and was used in the original Daytonas.

Anything with a 72 inside commands big bucks these days.
