    My new chronograph my favorite yet

    Got this in the mail today. I had my eye on it because it was an auction and it was a steel case watch. No pictures of movement and no size in the description. Bidding ended at 114 dollars. Listed as running but gaining a couple minutes a day. Well I got it and the adjuster was pinned at "F" so I evened it out and it seems to be running very good. I have put a new crystal on it and fixed the hands as they were off a bit as you can see. I know the dial is not the best but its a 36mm steel case and I so wanted a steel case one so I am happy. Can anyone identify the age and anything else? Thanks!

    Venus 170 I believe. Case is nice and sharp, and a very good size. Fantastic pick-up for the price.

    Well, the brand is not unheard of; IIRC, Telda was one of the brands of the Nicolet holding (and it's marked on the case as such).
