1940’s Fortis SA [Vogt & Rüefli] Vintage Chronograph – Landeron Cal. 48


Out of stock

Professionally restored and fully serviced in-house here at the Localtime Spa, this is a classy example of a 1940’s vintage hand-winding chronograph from FORTIS [Swiss]. The case has been exquisitely re-plated [yellow gold], the Landeron Cal. 48 movement fully serviced, the original dial and hands were lightly cleaned and plexi-glass changed. Quite a large size watch for that period, at 37mm in case diameter [39mm counting the centre crown], this classic chronograph comes on a handmade genuine croc strap in cognac brown. You can see many of these straps if you search for ‘crocodile’ in our store. The great-quality buckle is one of our own here at Localtime, and you can see more details and variations in our eBay store, under eBay item number 400842595307. We have made many photos, including some macro close-up shots we took just for fun. As with all the watches we service in-house, we offer a 6-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to ask us for whatever clarifications you might need.
