    Identifying a Landeron movement chronograph

    Hey there guys.

    I want to buy this watch, but I need a little bit more information about it.

    The guy who sells, says it's a Landeron 48 movement, and it had a gold case but that was changed. Can somebody tell me which company made this watch or what is the watch name? Thank you very much :)

    In all honesty - run away.

    This is a terrible unsympathetic franken, and if the movement has been treated like the casing, it will never be satisfactory.

    You have here,

    1. An early Landeron 48
    2. A late case - 90s? Russian?
    3. Dial looks a little like a Sekonda/Strela
    4. Those misused crowns acting as pushers cause me actual physical pain.

    I suspect this is a 3313 case and dial from the 90s with a 40-50s landeron shoehorned in and dial glued on.

    I would personally only take this watch for $20 as movement spares, it looks OK.

    You forgot to mention the mis-matched hands, the damaged no-name dial, horrific green lume, brassing on the lugs, etc. Whatever the OP is going to pay for this, he would be better off saving his money.
