This excellently preserved pilots Bovet Rogers chronograph is in great functional condition and features a sharp chrome case. Made by Bovet Freres & CO. The case back is marked Bovet Freres & Co S. Also, there is a'LL' mark inside back case which stands for Louis Lang, one of the most important cases manufacturers during that era, supplying cases for Omega, IWC and other major brands.
Also, the telemeter scale is in miles, not km. There were 3 types of Bovet/Rogers chronographs manufactured during WWII, types 248, 249 and 250. This is 248, the earliest of them all. I was able to find only one other Rogers type 248!
This is a special model used by pilots and military personnel during WWII and it's extremely rare! Bovet manufactured chronographs in various sizes and configurations and is known for the distinctive vertical subdial orientation seen here. The 34x42mm case, oversized crown and round pump pushers are original to the watch and are in outstanding cosmetic and functional condition. The hands are originally blued, the snail dial and the telemeter had military use.
Powered by a Venus 170 hand winding chronograph movement, it shares DNA with the likes of Heuer and Brietling. The watch is all original and in excellent condition, it has a new leather strap. I don't sell'as is' watches, all my watches are serviced and ready to wear! That spares you of a big expense in the coming years.
