Hello,
I have read several threads in this forum related to Waltham Cronómetro Victoria and Cronómetro Supremo (written in Spanish). It suppose that they were made for theLatin-American market in a limited number (do you have idea how many). Here I am posting my Cronómetro Supremo 21 jewels in a 14K gold case. Nevertheless, the novelty, at least for me, is the case in which it is housed. You can see in the pictures that in the same case you can turn open face to hunter case style and it seems that the case holds the Fogel firm making me to think that it is the original. Never seen this type of case and wanted to share with you.
Thank you,
Javier

Looks like they only made 130 HC and 50 OF versions, definitely a scarce watch and being in the original Fogel case makes it even better. Thanks, Javier.

Beautiful. I once purchased an Elgin Grade 105 in an 18k case of similar convertible design, but I returned it to the seller because of now-forgotten issues.

Thank you Ethan,
When I purchased it I didn't knew the type of case and just before I took it to service when I was noticed. It was a nice surprise :cyclops:
