COMMENT
A rare vertical chronograph. It is equipped with Venus 170, which was used in Breitling. The case is 18K solid rose gold and luxury specifications. At the time when the wristwatch itself was a luxury item, it is easy to imagine that it was a gem that was touted among some wealthy layers. The dial is a rose gold x copper bullseye dial, which is a unique design and coloring of this model year. The dial is lined with telemeters, minute lines, Arabic indexes, and spiral taki from the outer circumference. The index is gilt, and the reflection of light like plating is beautiful. The hour and minute hands are plated with rose gold color, and the center chrono and the 30-minute counter at 12 o'clock are blue steel.
It's the best condition you can expect for a 1950s watch. The case has little polishing history, the edges of the lugs stand out, and there are few small scratches. The engraving on the case back remains firmly. The dial shows a slight patina. It's mild and doesn't bother you when you wear it. The photo is a little emphasized. There is no change in the color of the bullseye, and the excellent color balance remains as it was at that time. No peeling is seen on the print. Aging can be seen on the hour and minute hands. The blue steel hands retain their bluish tint and are a good point color. It has been disassembled and cleaned at our shop, and we have confirmed a power reserve of 39 hours.
The brand is Chronograph Switzerland. If you like vintage chronographs, you may have seen them once. A Swiss watch parts supplier that prospered from the 1940s to the 1970s.

Many models are equipped with Randeron and Venus. It is a dish that you can enjoy the feeling of discovering a masterpiece buried in history.
