The Venus 55 is a typical form movement, which was used in the 1940ies in ladies’ watches. It impresses by its quality which is far above standard.
The regulating organ is a golden toned screw balace. The hairspring connected to it can be well regulated in its effective length by a long regulator arm with scale.
The escapement is a pallet lever, which controls a conventionally constructed movement. The speciality of the gears is, that three of them are beared on the movement side in chatons, of which the jewels have got an oil reservoir.
Another visual highlight is the perlage decoration below the balance.
On the dial side, there are also jewel bearings with oil reservoirs, which is visual appealing, too.
Of course, this movement has got a yoke winding system, and here, the setting lever spring has got a very unique shape.
