Verity Chronograph

Post by domecurb on Fri Mar 08 2019, 13:44

just arrived today: VERITY Chronograph from late 60's/early 70's

this was on eBay and priced so low it would have been silly not to buy it Very Happy

i initially thought it was running a Valjoux 7733, but it turns out to be a Landeron 248

i cant wear it at the moment as the strap is too short and being a 19mm lug width i dont have anything that will fit😢



and beautiful spotlessly clean Landeron 248

Is the Landeron 248 better / worse / or equal to the Valjoux 7733 ?

not really anything in it between the 2, both do the same job, same jewel count and same quality IMO, maybe the landeron is a little rarer ? or more accurately not seen as often, more than likely due to misidentification which i was guilty of as they look the same Very Happy

That’s lovely, well spotted and well done with your purchase. Don’t think you will get bored with it and if it doesn’t get much wrist time it’s still a great watch to have in your collection. Very Happy
