1940’s LEONIDAS [Pre – HEUER] Military ‘Big Eye’ Chronograph – Landeron Cal. 48


Out of stock

An exquisite and classy military-style LEONIDAS Swiss [pre-Heuer] chronograph watch, this rare 1940’s piece has been professionally serviced in-house here at our Localtime Spa.

It is absolutely 100% original, with no foreign parts, in excellent condition throughout and ready to proudly wear or join your collection. The 35.50mm [37.50mm counting centre crown] case is in excellent unpolished condition. The original ‘big eyes’ ‘cream’ dial and copper brown hands are a feast to the eyes with a beautiful patina. We have made many photos, including snapshots from the restoration and some closeup snapshots we took, just for fun. This lovely chronograph is fitted with a high quality brown calf strap and buckle by HIRSCH.

As with all the watches we service here at Localtime, this too will arrive to you with a written 6-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact us for whatever questions you might have.

EXTRA! Check out my own Localtime straps: Handmade from premium calf leather to my own specifications in Italy, they come in 5 sizes [lug width/buckle width]: 18/16, 19/16, 20/16, 21/18 and 22/18mm & 8 colours: tan, brown, dark brown, black, cinnamon brown, olive green, denim blue and grey blue. I sell these separately in my eBay store under eBay item number 401105271426.
