FS: LeJour Dato (Landeron 189)

On offer's a LeJour Carrera Dato powered by a Landeron 189. Really sharp tricolor dial, with a Telemeter scale from 12-3 and Tachy from 3-12 on the silvered outer dial, and black writing on the dial proper; all lume plots are present and match the hands. The red chrono seconds hand with a date window is flawless. The date flips at midnight, chrono works well, resets to 12 each time, and the watch keeps very good time (+/-15 seconds/day); the only hangup is that, sometimes, when the chronograph's activated, the minute totalizer jumps out to 1 minute (happens maybe 50% of the time); an overhaul/cleaning would fix it. The large stainless steel case—37.5mm without crown, 40 with, 45mm lug-to-lug—is in great shape, with no real marks other than very very light wear--and the crown is signed, but the logo's worn. There are initials crudely scratched into the caseback.

Asking $650USD; happy to provide references, more photos, answer questions, whatever (email: Also happy to work out shipping and payment methods with buyer. Thanks for looking, and to Jeff/CT for hosting.
