Venus Cal. 179 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 split-second function. The dial features a 3-9 subdial arrangement.
Cal. 179 was recently used by Panerai in their Radiomir Chrono Split Seconds, PAM00047.
Cal. 179 was introduced around 1947, substantially modified in 1949, and retired around 1960.
