    Lanco-Fon

    This one is complete and works.

    As it came:



    The dial is the same as this one:

    bidfun-db Archive: Wrist Watches: 726: Gents Lanco-Fon, Manual Wind Alarm, ca. 1950 n.o.s. - but with blue tip to the alarm hand and a blue second hand. Around 1950.





    This 'dust cover' is actually the bell. Note, I have read that some NOS Lanco-Fons from India are missing the bell - so take care.



    Its an amazing movement. This video is kinda nice:



    I forgot to take a picture of it on its new strap.

    Watch buying budget now exceeded.

    Looks like you bagged a great example, it looks very little used and
    the dial is excellent. Very nice catch.

    I watched the video, there is quite some difference in the alarm sounds
    that they make from one example to the other...what is yours, a buzz
    or an alarm bell ring?

    Karma makegood. When trolling also try these spelling variations (all ® Tms):

    Lancofon
    Lancofono
    Lancophon
    Lancophone
    Lancophono

    pithy has owned several different Langendorfs, including some salesman's samples. The movements are well designed and excellent timekeepers. A somewhat quirky, very under appreciated brand.
