Catalogue Note

This watch was named after the wife of the racing driver Jochen Rindt who used to wear it.

With its panda dial, black bezel and a movement based on the Valjoux 72, this watch has many strong common points with the celebrated Rolex Daytona and is considered by collectors amongst the best vintage sport chronographs.

The present watch is from the first series distinguished by the applied logo at 12 and tapered hands.

The second series has a painted logo in a rectangle and larger hands.
