An extremely rare Matra Sports racing chronograph, new old stock –never been worn.
Swiss made, Valjoux 7750 automatic mechanical movement.
French blue dial.
Date window and day window (days of week in French.)
Grey outer Tachy scale.
Vintage French grey racing strap marked “Rodania”.
There are minor tool marks on case back, otherwise it’s in perfect condition.
100% original, untouched.
I suspect the watch dates from around 1974, (due to the movement production) and maybe a pre-production prototype?
-Never seen another!
Possibly to celebrate the Le Mans success? -But I cannot be sure.
-The dial quality is identical to that of the Heuer 7750 chronographs so was a top-end chronograph of its day.

Espace Quadra Parts
I have a 1989 Quadra which I am breaking. Just too much work to get it through its last MoT, so most parts are available, including a pristine carbon fibre prop shaft which does not vibrate. The engine are gearbox are good, the engine had a cam belt change only last year. The car had air conditioning from new so air-con parts are available. The rear diff is of course seized, as usual with these cars, and the reason I removed the prop shaft ages ago. I used to put it on when any snow threatened - a really quick job, less than 30 minutes. I shall miss that aspect of the car.
