1950’s PRINTANIA Watch Co. Genève (Swiss) Vintage Dress Chronograph Watch – Landeron Cal. 51
1 in stock
A stunning dress chronograph watch, this large PRINTANIA from the mid-1950’s with a manual-wind Landeron Cal. 51 has been professionally inspected in-house here at our Localtime Spa.
It is in excellent authentic and honest condition throughout and ready to proudly wear or join your collection. The 36.25mm (38.50mm counting the centre crown) case has been professionally cleaned but not re-chromed. The original dial is full of character and the gold numerals and hands create a breathtaking and classy combination. We have included many photos, including some snapshots from the Spa bench and closeup snapshots we took, just for fun. This lovely chronograph is fitted with a high quality double nubuck dark brown calf leather strap, that accentuates the dial pretty nicely.
As with all the watches we handle inhouse, the listed buy-it-now price includes a 3-month written warranty from the time of purchase. Do not hesitate to contact us for any further information you might need.
EXTRA! Check out our own Localtime straps: Handmade from premium calf leather to our specifications in Italy they come in 5 sizes (lug width/buckle width): 18/16, 19/16, 20/16, 21/18 and 22/18mm & 11 colours. We sell these separately in our store under Accessories & Straps and you can also see them in the last photo here.
Important Note: Sometimes I am asked what I exactly mean with ‘professionally inspected by Localtime’. Here is my theory on vintage watches: as a purveyor of vintage watches, my effort is to always do only what is needed to the watch. I do not buy ‘junk’ watches to resell. I am choosy with my purchases and always sell watches that are, to my knowledge, authentic and in good condition. I first inspect the watch, both visually (cosmetically) and then mechanically. If I judge that the watch is not yet in need of a full service then I do not put the watch through a service which, by the way, entails a lot of risks too. Instead, I give it what I call my ‘Spa’ treatment which will include a cleaning, changing of gaskets, oiling, lubricating and mechanical testing. If the plexi is heavily scratched or discoloured and it can not be cleaned, I change it. If the crown is wrong or worn, I also change it. Now, if the watch is in need of a full service, then my ‘professionally inspected’ description becomes ‘professionally serviced’. In both cases, I mention what has been changed (if anything) on the watch and I include a written warranty with my listed price.
Important Note On Straps/Bracelets: The straps I use on my watches (leather, canvas, suede, rubber) are always brand new, unless otherwise mentioned and, in most cases, I also sell them separately in my store, in different colours and sizes. In the case of metal bracelets, if the watch is NOS, the bracelet is also unused. If the watch is pre-owned with its original bracelet, then the bracelet is also pre-owned, unless otherwise mentioned. Either way, if in doubt, please ask.
