    Need help to ID Monopoussoire chronograph movement

    Hi guys,
    I'm at work and I need to ID this movement.
    I don't have my ref books around and I've been searching for the pass hour on the net without any success.
    Can you help?

    5 pillars on the pillar wheel and the shape of the balance cock similar to Landeron 39 lead me to believe, that it's a Landeron-Hahn, something like this one:

    Thanks mkws.
    This is one Landeron that I found one EBay. No caliber number.
    Does the number 53 found on the front stand for the caliber number?
    I need the caliber to order parts.

    Yes, that should be the calibre number. In the old days, they put that on the base plate dial side before it moved to under the balance wheel.

    No idea. I've tried to find any info on Landeron 53, but the 53 seems to be an entirely different movement. That, of course, is unless they redesigned the balance cock. The 53 is also a column-wheel chrono, but the balance cock looks like the one used in the cal. 48 and its derivatives.

    Re: Need help to ID Monopoussoire chronograph movement

    That is all rather weird since this page.

    Uhrenhersteller "L"

    ...(about 1/4 of the way down the page) has a Cal. 53 from Landeron - with the older style of balance cock (just like the OP's watch), but with a cam system rather than a column wheel! There seems to be some uncertainty as to what this calibre really is. That confusion is probably not made any easier by the fact that some movements have interchangeable parts and that these were actually frequently interchanged (e.g. Landeron Cals. 48, 148, 248).

    Crazy. Thats what I've notice from reading other threads of people asking to help ID old Landeron calibers.
    It's not an easy task. No identical caliber fund yet. I need to order a staff for an incoming Watch.

    The seller say that "markings under dial on the movement are brevet, 57, 317283"
    This is what the caliber 57 looks like : ?????

    That looks right. Layout and parts like the flyback lever and coupling clutch along with it's springs are the same.
    The 53 and 57 both have a cam switch and more than 1 pusher.
