    Hello.

    Gallet assembled their chronographs with Venus 170 (up & down) during the 40s, with Venus 140 (regulators) during the 30s and early 40s, and with Venus 150 (Multichron 30, Clamshell and early Flight Officer) during last 30s until early 50s.

    The Gallet chronographs with Venus 188 are later, from the 60s. When Venus went to bankruptcy in 1966, Valjoux renamed the Venus 188 to Valjoux 7730 and Gallet continued assembling this caliber.

    There are Gallet with Venus 170 with stainless steel cases and with chromed and stainless steel casebacks.

    Kind regards.
