A true mom and pop success story in the turn of the century, Paul and Olga Schwarz started the Venus Watch Company after selling watches under the name of several different brands. Venus also had several innovations that are still in todays modern watches. The company found a new ownwer in recent years and still very much active today.
Sometimes it's difiicult to imagine that we had such products like these in the past. You can't help but notice that in todays trend, bigger is better when in fact bigger isn't always wearable. A true 38mm gem like this Venus chronograph retains it's collectibility throughout the years. This watch might have come out in the late 60's or early 70's from the looks and feel of the case. It has a very nice racing inspired blue dial with a tachymeter scale couple with two white sub dials. Perhaps the most unique feature of the watch is it's sweep hand with its orange syringe style. Even for just a tiny tip, it is visibly present and cool looking.
The case of the watch is in great shape for its age. The plexieglass has a few scratches seen in the photos.
