    LeJour Triton - Landeron 248 movement

    Received this a few days ago and thought I'd post a few pictures. It dates from the 60's and is in very good condition, practically NOS, the plastic sticker is still on the case back. There are a few, very minor, storage marks on the case but nothing that can't be polished out.

    The movement looks in excellent condition and all functions work perfectly. The button at 2 starts the chrono function but then the button at 4 stops and then, when pressed again, resets the hands.

    I'm trying to find out more about the movement if anyone has any info please post here:

    Here's a few pictures:

    Hi -

    Lovely.

    The movement is in particularly remarkable shape: I love the different surface finishings.

    But that minutes totalizer is driving me crazy: markings at 3, 6 and 9, with the red marking at 5 minutes!

    The bezel is also remarkable: not merely minute markings, but also the opportunity for a second time zone with the 1-12 markings.

    Lovely, really lovely.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Congrats!
    Particularly the all steel case makes the difference.
    Personally, I would prefer a version without a turning bezel, but I think I'm in within the minority there.
    Very nice sample, thanks for sharing!

    Cheers,

    Axel

    Of course you can, it was amiss of me to not give any dimensions :oops:.

    Width w/o crown 38mm
    Width w crown 42mm
    Lug to lug 48mm
    Lug width 19mm
    Depth 14mm

    Pretty generous dimensions for a 60's piece, although not by todays OTT standards. Hope that helps.

    Cheers

    I know this is an old thread - but I just came upon this watch as well - but I need a new strap - and would love to know what strap is on the one posted by the OP. That fits the style of the watch perfectly!
