This is a rare tropical dial chronograph. The black gilt dial has transformed into a rich brown color without any blotches, and the underlying gold tone has also changed to a subtle gold color. The dial maintains a moderate shine, making it an especially outstanding example of a tropical dial. The case condition is excellent, retaining the thick and robust case shape characteristic of the Sky Chief. Combined with the tropical dial, this piece exudes a fantastic vintage aesthetic. It is equipped with the renowned Venus Cal.178 movement, a flagship model of the Venus company.*This item is on consignment, but we offer a 6-month warranty at our store.
