Mechanical movement Venus 188 – rose gold.

Type: Chronograph wristwatch
Brand: Chrongraphe Suisse
Movement: Manual winding
Gender: Men
Case material: Pink gold
Period: 1901-1949

Impressive dimensions (37.6 mm without diameter crown, and 44.4 from horn to horn) and a nice condition make this Swiss Chronograph from 1940s quite remarkable.
It is equipped with a hand wind Venus 188 movement, recently revised by a professional watchmaker.
The case is in 18 kt gold, and the set without strap weighs 34 grams.
Some rare traces of use and light patina give this pretty watch the charm that suits a lady of this age, surprisingly preserved.
The attached photos at high magnification will give you an accurate idea of the exterior and interior state of this large chrono.
The lizard strap, handmade, is new. With the watch included but not the buckle, it is 22.5 cm long and fits wrist sizes of 16 to 20 cm around.
Carefully-packaged, insured and registered shipping via Colissimo.
Any customs duties will be at the buyer's expense.
