1950’s ASTREE Watch [by Dodane] Dress Chronograph – Venus Cal. 188


Out of stock

Professionally restored and fully serviced in-house here at the Localtime Spa, this is a great example of a vintage hand-winding chronograph from ASTREE WATCH [by Dodane, Besancon – France].

The case has been exquisitely re-plated [yellow gold], the Venus Cal. 188 movement fully serviced, the beautiful white and champagne dial and gold applied indices were lightly cleaned and plexi glass replaced. Quite a large and tall watch at 37mm in case diameter [39mm counting the centre crown], this classic chronograph comes on a cognac brown padded calf leather strap. I have made many photos, including some close-up macro snapshots.

As with all the watches I restore here at the Localtime Spa, the BIN price includes a written 3-month warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.

EXTRA! Check out my own Localtime straps: Handmade from premium calf leather to my own specifications in Italy, they come in 5 sizes [lug width/buckle width]: 18/16, 19/16, 20/16, 21/18 and 22/18mm & 8 colours: tan, brown, dark brown, black, cinnamon brown, olive green, denim blue and grey blue. I sell these separately in my eBay store under eBay item number 401105271426.
