The Navichron

Okay sports fans!  After months of slow reveals, word reached the North Shore offices of Tempus Fugit late yesterday that the Ollech & Wajs Navichron is now ready for prime time!

It's chronograph for pilots... and a dive watch!  Not since the great "you put chocolate in my peanut butter / you put peanut butter in my chocolate" debate of 1979 have the stars aligned so pleasantly.

Shamelessly Borrowed from the worldwide infoweb

Back then we got the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup, and today we get the rebirth of the Ollech & Wajs Navichron.

The case is of stainless (316L) steel and measures 39.56 mm X 16.8mm. The Navichron sports a bi-compax chronograph function with the Valjoux 7753 under the hood.  

This one wins the coveted "Shit That Killed Elvis" title here at Tempus Fugit and will not doubt sell out quicker than the waffle's sexier cousin, the hotcake!  REALLY limited to 56 pieces in two different versions.  It is not on the website yet, so I suggest that you check back regularly if you don't want to miss the boat.
