About

Rodania stainless steel chronograph wristwatch, 17 jewels, Valjoux calibre 230 manual-wind movement, circa 1950s

The Rodania signature and logo appears multiple times, inside and outside case, on movement, crown and dial. This rarely seen timepiece is striking in its similarity to the Omega and Rolex chronograph but it appears that the Rodania was released a couple of years before these models. The Rodania watch company was founded in 1930 and has produced many interesting timepieces before the 1970s quartz revolution, the name has survived and the company is still active today.
