Beautiful watch!

It's ironic that back in the 1980s and even 1990s you couldn't give those Caliber 11 chronographs away -- either this Chronograph A or the Fontainebleau chrono. They were dirt cheap but there were no buyers. I sure wish I had stocked up!

This 40mm Intra-Matic Auto Chrono I bought from Rene several weeks ago is a great homage to it.

Beautiful watch. I'm in the middle of negotiating for one. Hopefully, it will work out.

In a shameless post hijack (still related to Cal. 11), does anybody out there have a Countdown they might be willing to let go? I'm asking for a friend...named Nicholas :roll:
