FS: 1940s Croton chronograph Venus 170

Beautiful vintage Croton chronograph from the 1940s.
Diameter: 33mm excluding crown
Lug to Lug: 37mm
Lug width: 18mm
Dial: Beautiful breguet style numerals with a snail tachymeter. True highlight of the watch.
Hands: Another highlight of the watch. Copper colored leaf shape hands. Under certain lights, it actually have a shade of purple.
Case: Chrome plated
Things to note: crown is a replacement and color of the crown is not matching with the case. However, it is a small detail which can be overlooked given the age of this watch.

Last known to be serviced in 2015. Working beautifully and chronograph works and resets as it should. Don't miss out on this unique piece!

Asking for USD700. Contact me at
