FOR THIS LANDERON CHRONOGRAPH DUAL SUB DIAL
[SECONDS AND CHRONO COUNTER]

RESTORATION ROCK USED THE FOLLOWING
FOR THIS AWESOME LANDERON I USED THE AWESOME ZENITH 5 JAR CLEANER WITH SOME OF THE BEST
CLEANER RINSE AND POWER PACKED RINSE WITH LUBE FROM OTTO FREI OLD SCHOOL STUIFF FOR A
CHRONOGRAPH
THAT WAS RUSTED TO HELL THE EBAY SELL FRETTED TO INFORNM THE WORD WHAT A GREAT WATCH. ONLY
PROBLEM? PARTS WERE
HELD TOGETHER BY LITERAL RUST. THE MOMENT THEY WERE DISASSEMBLED THAT WAS IT. NO MORE
RE-SCREWING, NO MORE
WORKING AND ONCE PLACED INA ZENISTH 5 JAR OR MY ULTRASONIC THAT WOULD BE THE DEATHNEL. THE
END CAUSE
THE RUST REMOVED WOULD BE THE MORTER HOLDING THE DARN THING TOGETJHRE

THIS 1950’S 4 JAR CLEANER WORKS GREAT
I UTILIZE NON-AMMONIA BASED CLEANERS FOR VINTAGE WATCHES
WHILE UTILIZING A SPECIAL COATING SOLUTION IN THE FINAL RINSES
FOR OUR ULTRASONIC, WE ALSO UTILIZING A SPECIAL COATING  IN THE FINAL RINSES
BOTTOM LINE IS THE ENTIRE MOVEMENT HAS A SEMI PERMANENT COATING
BE SURE YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON SOME OF THE FEW
WATCH REPAIR DVD/CD’S YOU WANT TO COMPLETELY STRIP A MOVEMENT
BUT THERE ARE TIMES YOU WILL REMOVE BALANCE AND MAIN SPRING
AND CLEAN THE REST IN ONE PIECE

IMG_2863.JPG (130348 bytes)

4 HANDS USE GREEN  DO NOT USE THE RED!!!!
TINY DRIP IN HOLES OF REMOVED HOUR, MINUTE + SECOND HANDS
WORK AROUND PLACE AND  DRY OVER NIGHT.
PLACE HANDS ON + USE HAND REMOVER TO REMOVE GENTLY
WAIT 4-6 HOURS PLACE HANDS AGAIN + LEAVE ON
THIS WILL STOP PROBLEMS WITH WORN VINTAGE HANDS COMING LOOSE.
LOCTIGHT DRISE IT IT DOES NOT REDRY- DOUBLE PLACEMENT INSURES ITS DRY.

A GREAT SCREW DRIVER KIT IS IMPORTANT
IF YOU CANNOT USE A SHARPENER
THE TIPS ARE AROUND 1.20
THAT ADDS UP CAUSE GOOD ONES ARE EXTREMELY BRITTLE

IMG_2919.JPG (143342 bytes)

5 SPEED ULTRASONIC
ULTRASONIC WATCH CLEANING SOLUTION

A MUST HAVE. EVEN WHEN SELLING 5TH TIER WATCHES
EASY MEASURE ANY STEMS OR CROWN
INSIDE DIAMETER OUTER DIAMETER
HAS SIMPLE DIED POSTS AND TAPPED STEEL HOLE

CANON PINION TIGHTENER A WATCH RUNS GREAT BUT HANDS DO NOT MOVE
OR RUNS SLOW THOUGH THE SECOND HAND RUNS PERFECT DATE DOES NOT WORK
CANON PINION?. THE CENTER GADGET THAT THE MINUTE HAND FITS ON
THIS BABY TIGHTENS THE CANON PINION

AS YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE, PARTS ARE CLOSE TO
LOOKING NEW.
KNOW, THEY HAVE BOTH NORMAL & SOME DAMAGE WEAR

WHILE WE HAVE NO PITTING OR CHUNKING.
AND THE STAFFS WHEELS PIVITS JEWELS PASS
THERE IS NORMAL AGE AND USE WEAR
AND SOME MINOR RUST/CORROSION DAMAGE/WEAR

IT PASSES AND CAN BE TUNED TO OPERATE

THE THIRSD TIME PIECE IS AN AWESOME ILLINOIS THAT SOMEONE
ATTEMPED TO REILLUMINAT
E.
THE FACT IS THE DIAL WAS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION YET THEY USED A GREE COLOR MODERN GERMAN
DEVELOPED GREEN
COLOR PHOSPHORUS LUMINOVA. PROBLEM WITH THIS WAS THAT ILLINOISE USED RADIUM. YES IT MORE
THAN LIKELY "GLOWED" GREEN
ALL THE TIME BUT THIS DOES NOT GLOW UNLESS CHARGED BY LIGHT, THUS THE HOB LOOKS BAD. YOU
CAN TELL IT WAS PLACED ON AFTER.
ECTYREMLY BAD AND EFFECTS THE PRICE. THUGH, THE INVESTER MORE THAN LIKELY WAS ABLE TO
RECEIVE TIS BEAUTY AT
A LOWER THAN APPRAISED VALUE DUE TO THIS FACT:, CURRENTLY THE FACT IS A PLATE MUST BE MADE
THAT MATCHS THE EXISTING DIAL. THEN
THE DIAL IS SOAKED TO REMOVE ALLPAINT. A NEW COAT OF PAINT, THEN THE FACE IS BULT. A STAMP
IS USED FOR THE BUTLERS DIAL MATCHING THE OLD
ONE STAMP FOR THE OUTLONED NUMBERS, ANOTHER FOR THE NAMES AND INFO. THEN ONE STAMP FOR THE
WHITE LUMINOVA THAT MATCHES
THE OUTLINED NUMBERS. THAT MEANS LL NUMBERS ARE FILLED AT ONE TIME. THEN THE HANDS ARE
HAND FILLED. WALLAH. LOOKS LIKE IT DID ORIGINSALLY.
WORTH 2 TO 4 TIMES THE VALUE 700 TO 900 APPRAISAL
