1940s “THUYA” Venus 170 stainless steel rare 35mm early waterproof chronograph with popular black gilt dial. The case is water-resistant to big pushers and snapbacks. Most of the earliest water-resistant cases with the Venus 170 are 33mm models, and the 35mm vertical step design is very rare. The dial is a multi-scale design unique to this era, with a base plate, and the black gilt dial, which has a nice aged look to it, adds to the wonderful taste. This watch is equipped with the Calibre 170 vertical movement with 2 eyes made by Venus, a company that supplied machines to many brands such as Breitling and Heuer, and it is a hidden gem with excellent design and quality despite its obscurity.
