well, I've finished another - this one in a cool art deco style stepped bezel case. Loving wearing it. The movement was in pristine condition, so I just gave it a pain free easy service - and again is 100% the original early parts. It probably took 1/10th of the time to service as the 7 jewel one. The hands and dial are NOS replacements, and I decided not to lume the dial as I like it as is. Ideally I would find shorter minute and hour hands and the long tail chronograph hands, but I can wear this as is in the mean time.
I'll start with a finished wrist shot, it has an original yellow crystal - which I polished. I understand these were to reduce glare.
Progress shot on the movement service - it lives!
This was the original dial - I had one NOS that was very close, but the black dial captured my heart! I'll use the white one on my last 47 - which I'll service later.
Because I can.
I quite like the engraved back.
I really like this bezel
What to say?
OK, that's enough Landeron 47s for now - I'm currently working on a very special Venus 210.
