Rodania Geometer Vintage Tropical Chronograph
A Very Nice Example Of This Very Rare and Collectible Reference
Switzerland, mid 1950s
Matte, brown radium dial, radium hands
Stainless steel watch case with screwdown caseback
High grade Valjoux 72 calibre
New, handmade Italian, black pigskin leather strap
Overall, the watch is in very nice condition. The tropical dial is in good. There is a small stain above the 5 o’clock marker. The radium luminous mass of dial and hands is matching. The case remains in very good condition with minor scratches to the surface, still sharp maybe polished once. The recently serviced watch (275°; +s/d) is in very good running condition, keeping very accurate time. The watch was acquired from a collector in Hamm, Germany.
Geometers come up for sale maybe 2-3 times a year. An example in this condition is exceedingly rare and collectible. The Geometer was conceived by Rodania in 1954, 3 years before the first Speedmaster (2915).
