    Yet another 1937 Landeron 47 Triple pusher, Black dial

    Hi All,

    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.

    OK, that's enough Landeron 47s for now - I'm currently working on a very special Venus 210.

    That is a beauty. Love the dial and also the initials on the caseback. I wonder who E.W. was?

    I am really starting to love some of the chronographs from the 30s, 40s, and 50s from companies that are lesser known (to me, anyway).

    Hah, no. I have 3 47s in total. 2 done, and I have 1 more to fix and that's it.

    I have a L50 and an early 48 to do as well, but I have no particular plans for any more. I'm somewhat interested in the 1st gen cam switched movements, so I have several Venus 188s and a couple of the Lemania 1270 family.

    Well, we'll never know who EW was. And yes, there are some good looking early chronographs around.

    Its getting hard to buy any vintage chronograph, including Landrerons, for a bargain these days - even without a brand name. It wasn't that long ago you could buy them for around $50-100. My days of movements for $25 are mostly gone.
