    Movement Question

    I thought this question should be reserved for those that frequent this forum :)
    I have the opportunity to acquire this chronographe suisse in a trade; the other party states that it's a Landeron 48 that's recently been serviced.
    From other Landeron 48's I've seen on the web this one looks a tad different.
    Can anyone with more expertise in these movements provide any insight? Is this movement authentic and/or heavily modified?
    Current collection:
    Omega Planet Ocean 42mm, cal 8500
    Omega Speedmaster 3570.50, ca. 2009
    Seiko Orange Monster SRP309
    Casio G-Shock Atomic Mudman GW-9300
    Timez Analog Perpetual Date
    Majestyk M-1 LED Red Quartz

    Hi there...

    certainly looks like a landeron from the 4X family!

    bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Landeron 48

    Note the info:

    'There were various chrono mechanisms. And as their parts often were interchangable, occasionally series were produced with parts of different calibres'.

    As such... parts from a Landeron 47, or 39.. etc may have been used at production!

    The movement looks clean.. If its recently been serviced and the dial is in good condition, I would give it a go.. at the right price!
