Love Overdue - the Expedition Chronograph

From Siduna -

I am a Siduna fan. And I'll go further, I am a big fan of one of the partners at Siduna, Francis Jacquerye.  Yes, watches are made by brands. But more importantly, brands are made up of people. And having spent some time with Mr. Jacquerye, I can honestly say that I take a great deal of pleasure when I wear my Siduna Standard Issue Compax Chronograph.

But today I am excited to share with you the newest offering from Siduna, and one that I suspect you will really want for yourself.

The Expedition Chronograph is a bi-compax chronograph with a bit of what Thierry Henry in Ted Lasso referred to as va-va-voom!

The case is stainless steel and measures 42 mm in diameter.  The movement is listed as Valjoux's 7753 top grade. 

You want this.

It is currently available for pre-order at a friendly price of (approximately) $1,485.  The first deliveries are anticipated for early December (if I have read that part correctly).
