FS: Gallet Chronograph venus 188 movement

Hi guys!

From my private collection I reluctantly put for sale this wonderful Gallet chronograph, with stunning blue hands, from ~1940.

The watch is in amazing conditions: dial is perfect, case has some scratches but is in great condition. Movement is a Venus 188 with 17 jewels (the Venus 188 is known to be the precursor of the Valjoux 7730-7733).

All original parts, the only things I have changed are the crystal and the strap

Has two round pushers, upper pusher starts and stops chronograph and bottom resets to zero. Dial has a 30 minute accumulator on right, constant sub-seconds on left. and 60 seconds outer chapter. Outstanding completely original example

Now, some pics:

Price for this watch in pristine conditions is £2,000 excluding shipping fees
Bank wire is preferred

Watch is located in London.

Thank you
