Produced between 1940 and 1966, the Venus 175 caliber is now very researched by collectors. Famous for its quality, viability and its place in Swiss watch history.
The watch is in very good genuine condition (!)
Only the glass and the strap are not original…
It has been fully serviced in March 2018 and is in perfect working condition!
Between the end of the 60’s and beginning of the 70’s, Breitling signed a partnership with LIP for exclusive distribution of Breitling watches in France and Belgium. Fred Lip asked that the dial would be signed Breitling/LIP
These watches, with a double signature are hardly researched by collectors.
