1960's Swiss Vintage Professional & Sporting Mens Chronograph Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. 4807

Today's offering showcases this classic original full-featured chronograph.

The dial has a telemeter scale for easily calculating the distance of phenomena that can be both seen and heard, such as munitions blasts and thunderclaps and a tachometer ring that measures the speed of objects, done especially for aviation and auto racing uses.

Powering the watch is a Venus movement. For those unfamiliar with vintage chronographs, due to their complexity, in vintage times most brands, including firms like Rolex, Breitling, and Heuer, did not manufacture their own movements but rather purchased them from companies who specialized in making them.

Venus was one of the well-known chronograph movement makers of the period. Their movements are best known for powering many Breitlings from the eras, as well as watches from Gallet.

The distinctive silver linen dial is original and mint.

Our watchmaker has cleaned and oiled the movement.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
