This 2 register Landeron Swiss 17 jewel movement is running and functions are working and keeping good time. I think this is cal. 48 in a stainless-steel case with snap on back. Numbers on dial are luminous. Has red sweep second hand. Dial is marked Antimagnetic and Swiss Made at the very bottom. Measures 34 mm side to side not counting the winding crown, 41 mm lug end to lug end and the red leather band has easy on and off pins. You may have to adjust the time keeping when you get it to your area. Just back from watchmaker who overhauled and changed hands as well as cleaned up a bit.
This watch is quartz battery operated watch that looks like the 1937 extreme curvex that fits on the side of the wrist. This one measure 20 mm wide not counting the crown and has perfect original white dial with sub seconds and raised yellow gold numbers. Fancy case is gold plated over stainless steel. Hand made black leather band is 14 mm wide where it attaches and long enough to fit most wrists. The battery is 363 and I will send along a new extra one so when needed you will have one.
14k solid gold case, 17 jewel cal. 613 Swiss made Omega movement is running and keeping time. Movement is marked Adjusted with serial number 29,231,661 made in 1970’s. Measures 32 mm side to side not counting crown, 37 mm lug end to lug end and 18 mm where the band attaches. Not sure if this is the correct back but tested it is 14k and fits tight, so it is what it is.
Day Date Calendar 2000. New in box with papers. Has both original boxes, cardboard outer and two tone plastic inner box. Running and keeping time. This is never worn condition has sticker on back from factory. Don’t want to open it that would affect the water tight feature so I think it is 17 jewels with perpetual calendar. Measures 42 mm side to side not counting crowns. Band is adjustable to fit your wrist. A real collector’s item.
Here is a rare one with a interesting history. Movement is 18 jewel with 3 adjustments. Is running and has 2 register dial in a 0.900 silver case with thick glass crystal. Measures about 42 mm side to side. I put this red sweep second hand on this, the only one I could find so it is not original from this watch. Please read the attaches history and you can see this company Berna ends up with famed Heuer-Leonidas. When I wind the watch is running but the pusher on the crown needs help. If you love a challenge try this one. Not sure how old but this is all I really know.
The Berna trademark was established in 1864 by Alcide Droz and Henry Perret who founded the Droz & Perret compagny in St. Imier, Switzerland. After some changes this company became Droz et Cie in 1887. Berna then was the name of one of their watch models.
In 1904 Droz & Cie, the exclusive owners of the St. Imier Factory, got into financial difficulties and converted their manufacturing business into a Joint Stock Company under the name of the Fabrique d'Horlogerie Berna S.A. in 1905. The West End Watch Co. supported the flotation by taking up a large number of shares in the new Company. At the same time, Droz & Cie sold their interest in the West End Watch Co. to Jacques-Arnold Amstutz and Constant Droz.
By virtue of their large shareholding in the new company, Constant Droz and Jacques-Arnold Amstutz were able to insist on a monopoly of all the products the joint stock company Fabrique d'Horlogerie Berna sent to India for a period of ten years.
But by 1907 the joint stock company was itself in trouble, and in December went into liquidation. It seems that at least part of the reason for this was a lack of orders from The West End Watch Co., who had complained about the watches supplied by Berna and began importing watches largely from other manufacturers, while they ceased giving orders to the St. Imier factory.
In 1907/8 the company again changed name and became Berna Watch Co. Besides pocket watches, Berna also produced stopwatches ( up to 1/100 second ) and chronograph watches to a high standard, as well as watches with repetitions and particularly flat watches were also produced.
The Berna Watch company was sold to Leonidas in 1928, which was then owned by Charles Jeanneret, maybe for financial reasons or Leonidas was in need of production capacity and technical know how ? and Leonidas kept using the Berna brand mainly for stop watches and chronographs until the mid 1960’s when the Berna brand name disappeared after Leonidas joined Heuer to become famed Heuer-Leonidas.
18 jewel 3 adjust. Case and movement are marked Berna and case is 900 silver. Measures 42 mm it was missing sweep second hand so I found this one so it was not original to this watch and when I wind it the movement runs and can set with crown. Can you help me ? Girard
