Mulco was a pretty unremarkable company that put together some pretty awesome watches. Much like many other companies of their time, they had no real manufacturing prowess but somebody was paying attention. They chose fantastic case and dial producers, and their designers were nothing if not on point. Syringe hands, large lumed numerals, contrasting red seconds hand, lovely fonts, and more. This particular watch is far from an anomaly too. Their chronographs are held in high esteem for their design chops by those in the know as well.
The 34mm stainless steel case is in good condition. The design is simple and reminiscent of a military field watch. The crown is unsigned but the caseback has some lovely details including the case maker’s name, a serial number, and some features of the watch. There is some pitting on the base of the case under the crown and on the side of the case.
The Dial and Hands
The Dial and hands are the star of the show on this watch and are in overall very good condition. The matte black background has aged wonderfully and provides a nice canvas for custard-colored lume and printing. Syringe hands are always a favorite of ours and these lumed examples are no exception especially when contrasted with the red second’s hand.
This watch features an unsigned AS 1188 manual wind movement. The watch is running and the service history is not known.
