Tavannes Chronograph, with Venus 175 movement.

Purchased on Chrono24, beautiful barrel case and magnificent bitonal dial with slight oxidation, with tachymeter and telemeter scales and with blued hands.

For the history of this type of timepiece, I refer to content tracked on the web.

Case size approx. 31.5 x 39mm, thickness approx. 10mm, distance between lugs approx. 17mm.

Please note:
the proposed watch, although over 80 years old (I would be inclined to date it in 1940) does not require special care and the movement is quite accurate, but I do not have a chrono comparator and, therefore, would be inclined to say that over the 24 hour period it loses 1/2 minute.
I have preferred, as an opening photo, to bring back the one with the former dark brown strap (which will not come with the watch), since, in my opinion, the toning of the dial makes it look especially good with a brown tone.

I am a private collector, the watch is part of my collection and I have no relationship with the manufacturer.

Formula seen and liked.

No time wasters, only enthusiasts and connoisseurs.

Refrain from indecisive and, above all, ill-intentioned people.
