1950’s STARTER [La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland] Chronograph – Landeron Cal. 51


Out of stock

I love new old stock watches, there is something special about them. Like the mystery that surrounds them with ‘why did it not sell and what was it doing all these years’? Especially for a beautiful watch like this STARTER ‘Chronographe Suisse’ by Achille Hirsch/Vigilant Watch Manufactory [La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland] with Landeron Cal. 51 that has been professionally inspected by Localtime.

I kept its unworn strap on the side and added one of my own. The watch still has its sticker price on the caseback, which I have decided to keep intact. It can, of course, easily be removed if you prefer. I have included many photos of the watch, including some macro-shots that I have made for fun, but also to allow you to enjoy the lovely details of the watch.

As with all the watches that are handled by Localtime, the BIN price includes a 6-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for any 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 and you can also see them in the last photo here.
