Free Worldwide Insured Shipping with FedEx / Authenticity Guaranteed / 14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

While being no big brand, Hugex sometimes offers a lot of things so appreciated and sought after by collectors. For instance, this particular chronograph from the early 40s offers a rare and fancy full stainless steel case with so-called "flexible" lugs, durable and well-design Valjoux 23 and a great dial with a great character - galvanic gilt black dial turning into dark chocolate color under the sun. 

Technical warranty: 1 year.
