I’ve recently acquired a vintage eldor geneve chronograph watch with what I believe the landeron 48 movement. It took me a while to open up the caseback and I finally did it today. The movement itself is quite loud compared to my two other old manual wind watches (seiko and camy). Are all landeron 48s this loud? Like I can hear the ticking sound even when it is in my bedside table drawer. However it is visually pleasing with some sort of stripe finish that’s more commonly seen in German watches.
The movement does not have a vintage look (quite new in my opinion) and is not signed Swiss made 17 jewels so it makes me wonder if there are any copycats of this particular movement. Like I know the seagull st19 is based off venus 175. So is there any chance that this is not Swiss made?
Thank you in advance for your input.
