Venus Cal. 198 is part of the Venus 175 family of movements. It is a hand-winding column wheel chronograph movement. Similar to the base Venus 175/176, it adds a full calendar (day, date, month) and moon phase indicator. The dial features a 3-9 subdial arrangement with moon phase at 6, day and month at 12, and a central date pointer.
Cal. 198 was introduced around 1950 and retired around 1960.
