    Didn't you know that when you put only "love" it automatically calls "Dibs"? ;)

    And saving on the shipping - with its' past history who knows the distance it might cover ? May even join one of these moon mission things that some other watches went on, can't remember who made them :D

    Thanks Hijak. I only have a cell phone but it has a 10 megapixel camera. I want to get a DSLR but keep getting distracted by watches :rolleyes:

    Depending on the reference, Wittnauers can be highly "collectible". That's a pretty watch you have there.

    Venus 188's are very sought after. I've attached a picture of an unmolested '54 Venus Chrono.

    I also have a mid '55 platinum winder which I'm told is extremely rare. It's a beautiful little watch and it runs like a champ.

    Wittnauer: the watchmakers watch. Apropos of, my watchmaker's favorite watch brand is Wittnauer.

    They are? I always thought the Venus and Landeron calibers were the least expensive and least chased of the mid 20th century chronographs. Ubiquitous is an understatement!

    Listen, the nice Israeli gentleman at the watch booth where I bought it wholesale / 50% off retail (he said his name was Jack but I heard his co-worker call him Shlomo??) anyway,,,my dear friend Jack said it's the best number 1. He knew what he was talking about with these watches.

    Now, this landeron could be crap because jack didn't say anything either way about landeron. If it was good he would have told me. landeron? Right??
