    Geneva Sport - Any info?

    Hello all - long time lurker first time poster. So I recently came across this Geneva Sport chrono from the 40's. I fell in love with the looks of it and pulled the trigger on the bay of e. I received it yesterday and it looks amazing. Seems to run flawlessly and all chrono functions work. I have searched all over to find information on Geneva Sport, including here, but I have come up with very little information. The movement is signed Geneva Sport but to me looks a lot like a Valjoux - although I;m sure I will be proven wrong by many of you

    Any info anyone has would be amazing. I am interesting in finding out as much as I can about the company and the movement.

    Thanks!!

    This movement is Landeron 48 .,, Completely different design than any Valjoux, in those years..

    Thanks for the correction. Obviously I have a lot to learn as far as spotting movements!

    A little strange: Geneva Sport made their own chonograph movements in those days:

    Presumably, they wanted a bigger one for this watch.
