FS: Chronographe Suisse. Vintage 2 register Chrono. Landeron 48

For your consideration.
A vintage ‘Chronographe Suisse’ two register chronograph.
Steel case with a narrow gold bezel.
It’s a nice size watch - 37mm without crown, 39mm with crown and 18mm lug size.
It wears quite large because of the narrow bezel and large dial.
I’m not sure, but I think that it' dates from the late 40’s / early 50’s.

The watch is in reasonable overall condition although, it shows some signs of age which would be expected.
The original, unmolested dial has ‘patina’ but generally is very presentable.
The case is pretty tidy, one of the pushers has a couple of marks and there is a scratch on the back (could be polished out).
It’s driven by a Landeron 48 movement and all functions work correctly, chrono functions are all correct and reset to zero position.
I’ve owned the watch for several years but it has just lived in the bottom of my desk drawer and only very occasionally seen wrist time.
It keeps good time whilst I’ve been wearing it and has a decent power reserve.
The watch has not been serviced in my ownership, however my watchmaker has recently taken a quick look and says that all appears to be fine.
The watch looks much better in ‘real life’ and my poor photography skills do it little justice.

I’d like to see UK £450 - Price includes shipping.
Return for refund ok if not as described and pictured.
Please examine the pictures which form a major part of the description.
My email for further info etc.
