FS: Tavannes chrono from 40s

Hi guys
Time to move a bit after recent expensive incomes, for sale this very charming Tavannes chronograph from 40s.
This is really one of my favorite watches, so it's not easy for me to give it away, but now decision is made. I love it because of its simplicity, but at the same time its incredible quality.
In a time of bigger and bigger watches, the incredible shape of its more or less 70 years old case (!) is really amazing. Watch is not intrusive and in my opinion you can wear it in both formal or informal events.

This Tavannes appears to be original in all its parts, and features a 36mm stainless steel case, really lovely blued stick hands, and a dial with a mesmerizing creamy patina. Moreover, it is powered by a really interesting and fascinating column-wheel Venus 165 (little brother, but same nature, of the well-known Venus 175, used by Breitling and others) movement. Of course watch is fully working and chronographic functions are strongly working, last time I checked from my watchmaker this watch runned at +10sec/day. Anyway I'd suggest a service in case of intense use.

For this really great watch I'd like to have 1500€ net to me. I honestly think that it has a really great value for money and well.. I love it :)
I have lot of references worldwide that I can provide if needed, so you can buy with total confidence. Me and watches are located in Italy.

Thank you guys
