Description

This Vintage Bovet Freres Rogers Long Play Venus 170 1940s Chronograph is a quality vintage chronograph in every aspect.

Rogers Watches were a import name for the highly regarded US jewellers & silversmiths  Rogers.  They had several trading names over the course of the 19thC & 29th centuries.

Selling large quantities of quality wristwatches to 1900’s USA ,  they developed a strong reputation with a few Swiss watch manufacturers.

Bovet Freres produced either all of  or  the majority of Rogers branded chronographs.
Usually featuring the rarer / more sought after Venus 170 column wheel movement with over under registers !
As this handsome watch does.

Occasionally  a Roger branded Bover chronograph will have a Bovet mark to the inside case backs ,  as the image/s showing another Bovet Rogers chronograph with stamped case back & Rogers branded dial {with over under Venus 170 45 minute}

I have also added 2 images of another fine Rogers ,  a time only with highly sought after Chezard 116 movement ,  featuring just how visually appealing a quality vintage watch movement can be  &  the quality vintage watches which Rogers sold!
It is marked  “Rogers Jewelry” .

They sold fine quality Swiss watches exclusively ,  though some women’s watches were not the finest sold at the time ,  their men’s range was a very different story.

The ‘highly desirable’  Venus Cal;170 is , as mentioned ,  the more sought after over under  long play / 45 minute capability ,  always much more sought after & always more valuable than the east west Venus 30 minute chronographs of this period!

At approx; 36m  wooc ,   the solid chunky case is in great condition.
Running strong & keeping good time ……… with the chrono functions working well & having no issues ,  this is a great watch for the price especially!

‘Untouched’ original dial is always a ‘welcomed relief’  and with the original pencil hands ,  chrono swwep & coloured dial ………. this Vintage Bovet Freres Rogers Long Play Venus 170 1940s Chronograph is not only a quality watch with an original dial &  ‘top end movement’ ,  it is also a very handsome watch & presets twice as good in person than the images suggest even!

The blue & red telemeter scale is far more visible in reality than the photo’s show!

Of course personal tastes will dictate whether a leather strap will suit your needs better than the current nato strap ,  yet this handsome Vintage Bovet Freres Rogers Long Play Venus 170 1940s Chronograph is ready to strap onto your wrist & enjoy right away!

This quality Vintage Bovet Freres Rogers Long Play Venus 170 1940s Chronograph is a classy vintage time piece and offers genuinely great value for money at the firm price  au$1,670 !
