1950's Chronograph Watch by Bovet:

For all of you aviators and auto-racers, this beauuuuutiful Swiss vintage Rogers watch by BOVET is manual wind with the famous 17 Jewel Valjoux chronograph movement. Valjoux movements have been in numerous fine Swiss watches such as Bovet, Breitling, Omega, IWC, and TAG Heuer and other time pieces since 1844. The serial number reads 1005366 and the inside of the case back has Bovet stamped on it. It has a tachometer for calculating speed/distance/fuel and telemeter for calculating speed of light versus speed of sound to determine distance. The hour and minute hands glow in the dark. This rare watch has just been cleaned and serviced, works great and will likely appreciate in value. It comes with a leather strap and wooden gift box with cardboard outer box. Call us at (323)306-6766 or email us at for price.
