I bought the watch from an estate and, due to the seller, the former owner was a pilot.
He owned this special watch by reason of his personal connection to the aviation.
The engraving shows the name of the owner and the Muelheim airport, which is still existing and until now hosting a flight training school (member of the AOPA).

Movement:

Correctly signed Venus 178, recently completely serviced. Runs excellent, all chronograph functions are perfectly given.
