    Landeron Chronograph homage

    Hi, I love this watch design but there are two things wrong with it, firstly it is too small and secondly it is too expensive, so I would like to have a go at making a look alike. I don't care too much about the movement - can be quartz or automatic but preferably not a hand winder. I have no experience making watches.

    Any ideas where I should start?

    Thanks.
