Catalogue Note

First manufactured in 1914, production of the Valjoux 22 continued for 60 years, ending in 1974.  The predecessor to the Valjoux 72, the reliable and robust nature of the 22 has earned it significant renown amongst collectors and enthusiasts; little wonder it has provided power to some of the world's foremost chronographs.
