    nice one, generally CS is sold for that price, being 18K gold is a bonus above it. The dial and hands look original to me, which is great. Its better that there are no markings on the movement, so nobody tried to frankenized it. Until end of WW II even early 50's most of the watches were not signed on the movement. Unfortunately chronorgaphe swiss is one brand that is mostly frankenized. yours looks all good to me. The Landeron movement looks clean and neat, not sure about the crown, but shouldnt bother even if replaced.use it in health. The crystal has been changed for sure, and this one suits perfectly to this vintage piece. Post pics whenever you add another timepiece into your collection, wish you luck in the journey .

    The cases of these watches are often very thing, so 700 is probably at the upper end, but this is a very nice watch! The Landeron is reliable and spare parts are easy to get. 18K Chronograph Swiss are getting quite scarce, as so many have been molten down.

    I do have a similar one, 13K, small, with ETA (?) - they are nice, but nothing special. The name goes back to a famous Danish watchmaker, as far as I know.
