Venus 60 old / 60-I


8 3/4”’ | Hand Wind | Swiss Lever | Small Seconds |


  • In the Flume K1 catalog, a distinction is made between Venus 60 old and new. In the K2 there are the variants 60-I, 60-II and 60-III. The “60 old” corresponds to the 60-I and the “60 new” to the 60-II. Both differ only in the shape of the setting lever spring. Later, the 60-III was added, in which the shape of the cap jewel plate on the dial side was changed compared to the 60-II (round instead of oval). The “Official Catalogue of genuine Swiss Watch repair parts” from 1949 shows both differences (see extra picture)
