DUGENA Choronograph 73453" Men's Watch
Crown:Genuine Dugena Crown (signed)
Case diameter: 39mm
Dial colour: gray
Such was the case of the 12-hour, hand-wound chronograph made by for a popular German brand back then, Dugena. This specific watch has Dugena printed on its dial but, in fact, it is a ref. 73453 from 1971, with the distinctive orange chronograph hand, a gray dial with blue sub-counters and a hand-wound Valjoux 7734… A watch that most of us know as the "73453". The style of this 73453 somehow started the trend for large watches in the early 1970s. At 39mm in diameter, it was just slightly wider than contemporary watches, but due to its shape with integrated lugs, there was a lot of extra steel on the case. A large notched bezel and a height of 13mm ensured that it really stood out on the wrist.
Dugena was a group of watch manufacturers based in Germany, with more than 100 years of history. Back in 1917, multiple smaller businesses were grouped as a collective of companies under the name Deutsche Uhrmacher-Genossenschaft Alpina-Dugena. They supplied watches under the brand name Alpina to the German armed forces during WWII – like the field watch below, which met with the Wehrmacht wartime specifications. This watch featured a chrome-plated metal case, fixed lugs, a 15 jewel movement by Marc Favre and a stainless steel screw-on caseback stamped DH “Dienstuhr Heer” – which could be translated as Army Service Watch.
