    Landeron 248 - info needed

    Hi all,

    I recently bought a 1960's LeJour Triton with a Landeron 248 movement. I was wondering if anyone had any more information about the movement.

    I've found the following info on the excellent Ranfft watches site:

    Landeron 248
    Features
    manual-wind chronograph, 60s, 30/45min, cam switched
    sub second

    Data
    13.75''', Dm= 31mm, H= 6.2mm
    17 jewels
    f = 18000 A/h
    power reserve 42h

    But that's the extent of my knowledge, anyone care to educate me?

    Here's a couple of pics from the seller.






    Many thanks in advance and ahave a great weekend.

    Cheers

    Gary

    I know nothing about the movement but it sure is a good looking watch
    2DARK Hardwood Watch Boxes are the real deal

    Thanks mr2blue, it looks even better in reality, the sellers pics really don't do it justice. I'll try and capture it a little better this weekend if I get the time.

    Cheers

    I won't tease you, Agent Orange!





    Same Landeron 48 movement. There were hundreds of dial styles for these watches.

    Hope this helps,

    Now that's just beautiful, I don't usually like gold cased watches but I'd be more than happy to wear that one. I love the use of blue on the tachymetre scale, the oblong pushers and that dial texture is just sublime. Ooh I've come over all jealous now. Thanks for posting Tom and wear it in good health.

    Cheers

    Re: Landeron 248 - info needed

    I have a Landeron 248 incoming later today - a 1969 Hamilton. I have two very basic questions about this movement -

    How do you set the time? Don't laugh... I have never had a watch old, other than my 100 year old Hammy 992 pocketwatch, which sets using a lever on the dial itself. Do I pull out the crown, as is the case with most watches?

    Is there a risk of overwinding? Do I wind until I meet resistance? I understand there is a 40 hour reserve with this movement.

    Does the chrono function per usual - top pusher is start/stop, bottom is to reset?

    Thanks for the help. Can't wait for the watch to arrive!

    >>> On my 248 it is upper pusher for START, lower pusher for STOP + RESET. <<<
