    Calling all Venus chronograph caliber experts...

    I was just discussing the Venus cal. 175 with a dealer friend who claims that there were a small number of three register versions. My understanding is that 175 is the base, and that the cal. 178 was the version that added a third register hour function.

    Any insights would be welcomed!

    Cheers,

    Tony C.

    I'm with you. I always thought that 178 was the three register version.

    Quoting Ranfft, this is where the confusion might come from:

    "Often, the enhanced versions are signed like the base movement"

    Therefore, if you see a three register Venus 175, it's actually a Cal. 178 signed "175"! Which doesn't seem to be all that rare either.

    I believe Dr. Ranfft agrees with you.
