Rate this Venus


Recommended Posts


Hello guys,

Could you help me please to rate this very rare vintage Swiss Venus.

I can’t find any information on web and catalogue data based about this model.

@VenusOwner The forum software doesn't seem to like links to png files, so I copied the first two pics for reference. That Venus trademark was registered by "Les Fils de Paul Schwarz-Etienne" in Nov 1952. The back shows the case is 18ct gold and the maker's mark (hammerhead 218) equates to "J. Beiner, successeur de Gianoli". That business appears in Swiss commercial records in La Chaux-de-Fonds from the start of 1958 as a maker of jewellery and watch cases. A picture of the movement might help refine the date a bit more.

Dear @VenusOwner, with acknowledgments to @spinynorman  for introducing some pics and information on this rather nice watch, you might also like to read my article on Venus watches entitled, "Venus Watches: An Enigmatic History" which was posted on the Forum on 12 February 2018. I give a little more information about the Venus de Milo mark used on some Venus watches in the topic.:)
