    With the Landeron 48, common movement but rare watch in great condition, from the late, eminent Philadelphia department store.

    Hi Adam 78 and friends,
    here`s another Chrono from my collection, but I`m not sure, if there is a Landeron or a Valjoux movement inside. I will let it open at my watchmaker the next days....
    The day I have purchased the watch, I inspected the movement and it was in perfect condition....:)

    It's nice when you can capture certain details/colours in a particular light condition, even if it is only with an iPhone! Talking simply aesthetics, the dark blue jumper seems to really bring out the depth in the rose gold, and of course the tan alligator strap! :p

    ::love:: Guess whats on my wrist now...

    Very pleasantly surprised because from the sellers photographs I thought this was in much worse shape:D. All I did was wipe it down with a clean cloth...there was so much dirt and grime on it i could not believe it. You would expect this to be done before taking photos and I'm sure the seller would have gotten his asking price, if not more, if he had! This is a gorgeous watch and I'm very pleased, these new pictures just don't do it justice...I'd been searching the interweb for a new 145.018 case but screw that...this is just fine. Anyway...SCORE!!!

    P.S. Thank you Dennis for your input.

    Looks like a chronograph about to blast off, with the center-seconds @ 12:00!
