SOLD - Vintage 1950s Stainless Steel Wittnauer Chronograph cal 14W (Venus 188)
Vintage Wittnauer chronographs have become highly sought after in recent years as they represent one of the last values in high quality vintage chronographs. Wittnauer used high quality movements along with solid high quality cases and detailed well made dials. Compared to some much higher priced chronographs, Wittnauer hold their own. This piece is a 2-register chronograph with an original silver dial, steel and lume hour and minute hands, and blue steel seconds and chronograph hands. The dial is all original with detailed sub dials, applied steel markers, a blue minute track and red telemeter track. The case measures approximately 36MM and is solid stainless steel with a stainless steel screw down case back. The case does not appear to had ever been polished and is in excellent condition. The manual wind cal. 14W (Venus 188) is very clean and the watch is operating perfectly. This watch comes on a new dark brown Hadley-Roma leather strap with silver buckle.
