    Identify LeGant Electronic Movement?

    Does anyone recognize this movement? The dial is marked "LeGant". The movement is marked "Montgomery Wards 9 Jewels". I'd love to find a working movement.

    Here's a copy of the Montgomery Ward catalogue from 1974 showing LeGant Electrics



    I do know that some of the Legant's used the ESA 9154 Dynatron balance wheel movement for example

    This chap usually has the knowledge

    Thank you! It appears to be either a Seiko EL-330 or a 3302.

    No problem, I used to have a Legant Auto Worldtime QS from 1972, virtually identical to the one shown in the advert, btw, do we get to see the face? I'd be interested to see it

    That's a good looker, crown at 2:30 too, very nice indeed, virtually mint as well. Good find Sir!

    I reckon it must be from around 1976, as I've checked the date on the catalogue scan and it was Xmas 1975.

    It is a nice looking watch. This one belongs to a customer, and he'd like to get it running again, as it was a gift from his wife, now deceased.
