  • Catalogue Essay

    Record Watch Company was founded in 1903 and not only had a rich history in making interesting and unusual calendar watches, but even more so in the field of chronographs. The present example of a split-second chronograph is one of the most iconic and most sought after watches the firm ever produced.

    The Venus Cal.179 sits within a wonderfully proportioned steel case with stepped sides and majestic faceted lugs, showing its original finish as if it left the Record factory yesterday. The stunning two-tone dial with gilt dot for the hours and Roman 12 and 6 further enhances this amazing watch and harks back to the very evocative times of the 1940s.
