What We Fancy
What is not to love about this one? Blackout, classic funky late 70s design, and a workhorse Valjoux movement. The cool factor is high with this one. A model similar to this is seen on the wrist of LT Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the first Top Gun movie released in 1986. He is wearing an example made by Orfina and branded under Porsche design. This example is in very good original condition with little PVD loss on the case, something that is very rare for these. It is also accompanied with the original box and papers.
