    A Marine master chronograph, probably from the late 60's or early 70s. With a Landeron 51 movenent, in really good condition. I just love it on an austrich leather strap.

    Well, that's one nice chronograph in a great condition! There are two Transmarine trademarks in Mikrolisk- one registered in 1920 to a Transmarine Watch Co., the other one to Nicolet Watch SA in 1949. These Nicolet chronographs were - if I am correct - always equipped with Landeron movements. So it's quite likely that what you've got is a watch by one of these brands belonging to Nicolet- there was quite a lot of these, all registered either in Tramelan or La Chaux-de-Fonds.

    It's become a friend of my Rewel. ;)



    I'm increasingly getting keen on these vintage chronos.

    I was told on another WIS-furm that this was probably part of Nicolet. Any ideas on the Rewel that I posted just now? Also a brand that was part of Nicolet? It also features a Landeron movement.
