A Venner time switches open face steel pocket stop watch, made in Switzerland in 1920. The pocket watch is complete with original box. This watch comes with spare parts material in the movement plate which is rare and a collectable item!

It has a tenth-of-second timer with black Arabic numerals, a subsidiary minute counter to the twelve, up to 30 minutes. Start, stop and fly-back are operated by the crown. The dial is signed “Venner Time Switches Ltd, No 1564, Swiss Made” and is in mint condition.
Movement – this mechanical stop watch mechanism has a system which when you push down on the winder it releases the balance and the watch then almost vibrates as it rapidly goes around accompanying the spinning escape wheel. The movement is signed “N° 3364- 585494, Parts Underneath to Use, Swiss Made”. The movement is in great condition.
Case: The stop watch comes in a steel open face case with a smooth finish. The inner side of the case is numbered: 479706.
