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 restored and fully 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 35mm [37mm counting centre crown] case is in excellent unpolished condition. The ‘big eyes’ dial and copper brown hands are a feast to the eyes. Please scroll down the listing for many photos, including some closeup snapshots we took, just for fun. This lovely chronograph is fitted with a handmade genuine croc strap in dark brown and a matching high quality buckle, variations of which you can see in our eBay store, under eBay item number 400842595307, both by Localtime.

As with all the watches we restore 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.
