A Genuinely Rare Vintage Venus 1940’s Roman Numeral Military Dial Amazing Cond; and running strong. Makers of Millions of chronograph movements , over decades , for almost all of the world’s leading watch companies ~ Yet sourcing Venus branded watches with Venus branded dials is not an easy task by any means!
Great value for money @ au$790. Although equal to many of the ‘other brands’ that has the same Venus movements in them , this quality watch is around Half of what the “same watch” with a more known Brand name but exact same movement would sell for.
I would even guesstimate that nearly most vintage watch collectors would not be aware of the fact that Venus did produce , market & sell to the public their own fully branded watches. Though mainly known in contemporary times as makers of fine quality innovative chronograph movements over a long period of time. They were in fact producers & marketers of fine quality mens & womens watch for many decades , starting at the beginning of the 20thC and still running strong today!
Perhaps realising that their fortunes were to lay in fact in concentrating on designing & creating fine quality chronograph & other movements , in large numbers , for other well established companies. They continued marketing their own lines of watches , whilst making large numbers of movements for numerous other watch companies.
Though to source one from the early 1940’s with a Roman numeral military dial and with the dial in 100% untouched original condition will be very difficult indeed. Remembering that condition is extremely important when assessing any vintage watch. To find one that ticks All of the ‘above boxes’ & is in near equal condition …. with a price below au$790 , I’d say Good Luck.
Our good fortune , is being passed onto our customer/s via the crazy price on this Quality Vintage Venus 1940’s Roman Numeral Military Dial Amazing Cond; gents watch.
A red tipped long seconds sweep floats in constant movement over the amazingly clean & almost new looking dial , which is guaranteed to be 100% as it was made. The lens has significant small scratching & has blurred the appearance of the dial in many of the attached images. The lens is currently being replaced & fresh photo’s will be added when returned.
Yet let me assure you ~ the dial surface & paint work is nothing short of exceptional! The dial on this Vintage Venus 1940’s Roman Numeral Military Dial Amazing Cond; must be amongst the very best that I have seen , in as much …. a watch from the 1940’s with original dial being in amazing condition.
Once the lens is replaced , then you will see what I can see with a jeweller’s loupe & the watch in hand. This really is a fantastic early 1940’s ww2 period manual wind gents watch ~ made by one of the world’s best watch movement makers of all time ~ Venus!
Naturally the gold filled / st.steel case has signs that it is a vintage watch & has actually been worn during it’s 75 years of life!! A couple of minor spots of gold loss with tiny ‘scratch’ marks noticeable under magnification. Approx; 33 mm’s plus crown this can be regarded now as a uni sex watch , suitable for both men or ladies.
Not being an ideal watch for men with large wrists or those that prefer contemporary size dinner plates on their wrists ~ yet with women’s fashions previously dictating that ‘boyfriend watches’ were uber cool ….. now most women prefer larger size watches than they once did.
A very stylish watch with an obvious vintage aesthetic , this Rare Vintage Venus 1940’s Roman Numeral Military Dial Amazing Cond; has a great vintage character that appeals to almost all collectors & admirers of true vintage watches .
