    Juvenia double chronograph

    Unfortunately, I didn't have the opportunity to acquire this watch, but I thought it might be of interest. This Juvenia split-second (double) chronograph was sent to my watchmaker for repair from an out-of-state owner who inherited it from a relative. The owner balked at the price of service/repair (although my watchmaker's prices are certainly not exorbitant) and decided not to have it repaired. My watchmaker mentioned it to me and I expressed interest in the watch, but the owner decided he would rather hold onto it since it was a family piece. Still, I have never seen one of these before, so I thought I would post it. There are two sweep hands. I believe the movement is a Venus 179.

    The dial is only fair, but I still like it. These don't come around so often.

    All descriptions for venus 179 on the web say that it should have a crown pusher too but it looks like this one is missing one?

    there were two crown variations for the Venus Rattrapante - the "crown pusher" variation & the "rotating activation crown" picture here; patented by Breitling on May 11, 1944; Brevet CH241963

    I wondered the same thing about the crown, but since the owner wasn't interested in selling, the conversation never went that far with my watchmaker.
