Sears Roebuck watch may be of some interest.
I have a Tradition watch, nice watch, bought one when i was 16 years old, not sure what happened to it.
Interesting. I get it as a Valjoux 7733. I know that Valjoux made movements for more than one high-grade brand, including Rolex. I don't know much else. I wouldn't be surprised if your chronograph was one of the better watches sold by Sears under that, or any other, name. Nice wristy. Cheers.
The Valjoux logo and 7733 is stamped under the balance wheel.
A lot of experts say that Heuer made these for Sears. They call them poor man's Heuers. If you look you can find a bunch of sort of private label versions of this watch. The VJ 7733 is a decedent of the Venus cal 188. Venus started making this movement in the late '40s and when Valjoux bought Venus in the mid '60s they kept the basic design. The 7733 works on a cam switching system instead of a column wheel. It was cheaper to make and pretty reliable although the pushers do not set with the same satisfying positive click.
I love these little 7733 chronos. I am wearing one right now with the name Kaltron on the dial. The case is slightly different. Your Tradition is a bit more elegant and Heuer like.
