    Venus 188's are very sought after.[/quote]

    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??

    Pretty. WG or Silver or something else?

    the reason I ask is because your watch strap looks rubberized and rubber is a no no for silver (and cat licks)


    i wish I could give your watch two thumbs up; it's that nice...

    No, strap is a vintage shell cordovan (I admit it is glossy), and the watch is white gold filled, ca. 1928, model called the Tonneau.
