My late father competed in rallies in the 50's and 60's. During the holidays, my older brother gave me dad's watch that my brother had without my knowing existance thereof. It is a swissmade Wakmann 17 jewel stopwatch with seconds and hundredths.

Were these commonly used by codrivers in that era and is there any value to them now?

Great gift, obviously you were a good boy ;) .

Wakmann was a very reputable movement maker who's movements were widely used by Breitling. I believe Breitling ended up buying the company but I'm not sure. Their chronos are still sought after by collectors especially the navigation and aircraft use chronos. I haven't heard of Wakmann for such a long time. I have a relatively recent copy of vintage timepeace values book so if you can send me a pic of the front and back of the watch I can tell you what the book says. Enjoy it and get it insured.

Cheers
