Parker Vintage 1940s Military Pilot Chronograph Snail Dial
This fantastic stainless steel 1940s military pilot style watch has a black and gold “snail” dial with both a tachymeter & telemeter in miles.
It is powered by a fascinating column-wheel Venus 165 (little brother, but same nature, of the well-known Venus 175, used by Breitling and others) movement. Watch and all chronograph functions are fully working.
There is visible pitting and corrosion on the stainless steel casing, and some patina as well as fading on the dial, all of which adds to the character of this amazing WWII era pilot watch.
