    Land of the Giants, Capt Burton's chrono id?

    I was watching the episode The Chase tonight, we saw several close ups of Steve's watch, something like this, but not this one:

    Also someone else had a non-chrono we saw a close up of, I think one of the money printers?

    The chronograph in question has a pretty generic dial design, used by a lot of manufacturers from the late 1940s until the late 1950s.

    Could be some Chronographe Suisse wonder with hollow lugs, and could be something by a more or less recognisable brand. No way of telling. Could also be a prop made for the film/series, like the "Patek" made for Drive​. Although my bet would be just a run-of-the-mill Landeron-powered chrono.

    Thanks, yes, a cool watch for a tv character though when they only needed a watch of any kind just to show the time.

    I used to love Land of the Giants as a kid. That was the golden age of TV Sci-fi (Time Tunnel and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea are a couple of other faves).

    I think the 3-hand might be one of the many Timex Marlin variants of the time, with the brand logo removed. Some of them look remarkably close in design to the current GO Sixties Iconic model. Here's one from my own collection that is very similar.

    That's great!
    I don't know why they have seemed to make them logoless.
