*******NOTE: ROCK SEALED CASE, SCREW DOWN CROWN, THE CRYSTAL AND USED SILICONE VACUUM CASE SEALER BUT HE DID NOT PRESSURE TEST DUE TO THE FACT HE ATTEMPTED TO DISCOVER A VENDER WITH THE ORIGINAL REPLACEMENT CRYSTAL IT IS ONE FULL MM THICKER AND HS A SPECIFIC GASKET. JB & OTTO FREI ARE STILL LOOKING. UNTIL ONE WITH PROPER SEAL IS FOUND WE RECOMMEND NO DIVING/SWIMMING. WHAT CAUSED THE MOVEMENT TO FAIL WAS NOT AGE AS MUCH AS MOISTURE. IF ORIGINAL / REPLACEMENT IS FOUND ROCK WILL INSTALL FREE NO MATTER WHEN.

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 STUFF FOR A CHRONOGRAPH THAT WAS RUSTED TO HELL THE EBAY SELL FRETTED TO INFORM 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 ZENITH 5 JAR OR MY ULTRASONIC THAT WOULD BE THE DEATH NELL. THE END CAUSE THE RUST REMOVED WOULD BE THE MORTAR HOLDING THE DARN THING TOGETHER

 

Landeron 48


OVERHAUL, SERVICE, RESTORE CHRONOGRAPH, NEW HAIR SPRING, NEW MAIN SPRING, THREE CLEANINGS = 2 5 JAR 1 ULTRA,
REPLATE CASE, CLEAN DIAL, RESTORE MOVEMENT, DE-RUST, POLISH HANDS,
  DISASSEMBLE THE CASE AND MOVEMENT HEAVY RUST AND CORROSION

NOTE IN THE FUTURE USE MY CONTACT PROGRAM.
[NOT TO CUT THE SELLER DOWN, BUT IT WAS PRETTY CLEAR THAT WATER HAD INVADED THIS MOVEMENT LONG AGO/ BEHIND THE DIAL YOU SEE WHERE I CLEANED THE CORROSION OFF. IT LEFT A SMALL LAKE LOOKING INDENT WHERE THE DIAL FEET AND THE COUNTER HOLE SHAFTS GO THROUGH.  IT ALSO WAS PART OF THE AREA OF GRINDING. THE MINUTE/HOUR WHEEL UNDER THE DIAL WERE EFFECTED FROM WATER ENTERIMG THROUGH THE LOWER PUSHER PLATES, BRIDGES AND PINIONS WERE EFFECTED. AS MUCH AS WE COULD SEE MEANS THERE WAS TWICE WHAT WE COULD NOT SEE.  WATER EVAPORATION BETWEEN THE PLATES WAS LIKE SIMMERING OVER TIME. IT TOOK THAT NASTY ORANGE CAN STINKY STUFF TO LOOSEN PARTS INCLUDING HANDS. BUT, THE CASE AND OVERALL PARTS WERE   AWESOME
AND THE DIAL? AWESOME, LIKE I STATED, HAND REMOVAL OF THE RUST MEANT CAREFUL WORK TO KEEP DIAL RIGHT ON.  TWO WASHES WITH THE ZENITH JAR SYSTEM.  ONE CLEANING WITH ULTRASONIC. FIGURE 300 TO FIX IT IS WORTH 1100.00 TO 1200 APPRAISED

*”SO… DAT IS DAT WE COULD’N DO NUTIN”
UPDATE DECEMBER 12TH WE ARE STILL AT THAT ONE PUSHER ISSUE

*[GOOD FELLOWS WHEN WHEN JIMMY CONWAY CALLED AND LEARNED TOMMY DEVITO GOT WACKED]i

A NEW MAIN SPRING, HAIR SPRING – HAIR SPRING HAD HAD MOISTUREDAMAGE LONG AGO- ANY MOISTURE WILL EFFECT ONE. IT IS SPRING STEEL AND IT IS PRONE TO RUST PERIOD. A NEW MINUTE WHEEL. LUCKY IT IS A LANDERON LOTS OF INTERCHANGEABLE PARTS

NOTE DEC 12TH 2015- I WILL HAVE THE PICS UP SOON I HAVE THEM ON A DRIVE I CLEANED, RE-PLATED AND RESTORED THE CASE IT IS AWESOME LOOKS BRAND DOG ON NEW THE DIAL IS BRAND NEW BOTH ARE ORIGINAL AND THE HANDS POLISHED I CHANGED OUT THE STRAP (NO CHARGE I SIMPLY CANNOT DO ALL THIS WORKAND LEAVE THAT STRAP WILL RETURN WITH WATCH ) I WILL BE SURE TO TEST THIS ONE FOR SOURCE

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 HANDSWORK 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.

UPDATE

9/26/2015

BELOW IS JUST A COST ITEM. JUST HAVE TO LOCATE ARM
DENISE SAID MAIN SPRING THAT WAS ON THE UNIVERSAL POLEROUTER MICROROTOR

THIS WAS A STUPID CONTROL ARM AND A PUSHER PROBLEM
OVER THREE MONTHS OF WAITINF I WILL HAVE TO MAKE NEW PUSHER

GOT THEM MIXED UP SORRY

WE NOTED A PROBLEM WITH THE UPPER “TWO FUNCTION” CONTROL ARM PUSHER CONTACT WHILE PUTTING TOGETHER. IT WAS DISCOVERED AFTER I RESTORED THE CASE, ELECTRO CLEANED AND 24KT GOLD PLATED IT, AND WAS INSTALLING THE MOVEMENT WITH DIAL AND ADJUSTING THE PUSHERS.WE DISCOVERED THE ONE OF THE CONTROL ARM PUSHER CONTACTS WAS ABSENT.

WHILE IT COULD HAVE BEEN RUST UNDER THE BEND IN THE CONTROL ARM THAT DISCONNECTED DURING CLEANING IN THE ZENITH JAR SYSTEM OR ULTRASONIC DUE TO THE REMOVAL OF RUST HOLDING IT, THE END OF THE “BREAK” LOOKS AS IF IT WERE “REPAIRED”. THE BREAK WAS CLEAN AND SMOOTH NOT ABRASIVE. EVIDENCE ON THE PUSHER WAS THAT SOLDERING TO FIT A REPAIRED ARM CONTACT CHANEL TO AVOID SLIPPAGE, ALSO THE BEND SHOWS LEAD BASED SOLDER WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH METAL REPAIRS ON JEWELRY AND WATCHES. I USE SAME FOR STEEL STEM, SETLEVER AND OTHER CASE HARDENED STEEL. I NOTE THAT IT HAD TO HAVE BEEN SOLDERED AND CAME LOOSE DURING ULTRASONIC

THERE ARE TWO CONTROL CONTROLLING THE START, STOP AND RETURN OF THE CENTER CHRONOGRAPH SWEEP HAND TO TDC. CENTER HAND IS NOT THE SECONDS HAND. THE ACTUAL SECOND HAND IS THE LEFT SMALL REGISTER WITH SMALL SECONDS HAND.

THE TOP PUSHER STARTS THE CENTER CHRONOGRAPH COUNTER HAND THAT MOVES AROUND THE DIAL. CLICK IT AGAIN AND IT STOPS THE HAND WHERE IT IS AT—AT THAT “TIME” ON THE DIAL– SO YOU CAN TIME EVENTS. CLICK IT AGAIN AND THE HAND RESUMES FROM THE SPOT YOU STOPPED IT. CLICK AGAIN TO STOP….. ETC.

WHEN YOU ARE THROUGH CLICK TO STOP THEN CLICK THE BOTTOM PUSHER TO RETURN THE COUNTER HAND TO TDC [TOP DEAD CENTER] WHICH IS THE NUMBER 12 AT TOP.

SO, THE PUSHERS CONTROL THE CONTROL ARMS THAT CONTROL THE FUNCTIONS OF START, STOP, AND RETURNING THE CENTER HAND TO TDC.

CONTROL-ARM

STEEL CONTROL ARMS CONTROLLING THESE EVENTS HAVE BENDS CALLED “PUSHER CONTACTS” THAT FLOW DOWN INTO SLOTS IN THE SIDE OF THE MOVEMENT ABOVE AND BELOW THE CROWN.

“PUSHERS” THAT GO THROUGH HOLES IN THE CASE SIDE – ABOVE AND BELOW THE CROWN- AND CONTACT THESE “PUSHER CONTACTS” THROUGH SAID “SLOTS” IN THE MOVEMENT.

PUSHING SAID”PUSHERS” CAUSES THE THE PUSHER CONTACTS TO MOVE THE ARMS WHICH MOVE THE VARIOUS CHRONOGRAPH CONTROLS.

THUS, THESE PUSHERS ACTUALLY CONTROL THE EVENTS AS DESCRIBED ABOVE.

WHILE THE CONTROL ARMS ARE FINE AND WORK FLAWLESSLY,AND HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED AND LUBRICATED, THE “BEND” THAT PROVIDES THE “CONTROL PIECE” THAT YOUR PUSHER CONTACTS TO “PUSH” INTO AND OPERATE THE UPPER CONTROLS THAT START AND STOP THE CHRONOGRAPH CENTER HAND IS SIMPLY “NOT THERE”.

IF YOU NOTICE THE ABOVE PICTURES ON RIGHT ONE SITTING SEVERALMM INTHE SLOT HAS THE [TOP] PIECE FOR THE PUSHER. THERE IS APP 2-3 TO MM FOR THE PIN TO BE IN THE SLOT WITH ROOM TO PUSH THE CONTROL SO IT CANNOT FALLOUT OR TURN OUT.

THE ONE AT BOTTOM HAS ONLY THE TOP PORTION. IT IS SMOOTH SO IT WAS NOT BROKEN OR WAS THEN FILED SMOOTH? IF YOU USE YOUR FINGER NAIL TO CLICK IT, IT WORKS FLAWLESSLY. IF I WERE TO SOLDER A PIECE TO CONTACT THE PIECE AT TOP, IT WOULD CLICK TO STOP AND START, BUT THE PUSHER WILL TURN AND THE CONTACT PIECE WILL COME OUT. UNLESS I RE SOLDER A PIECE THAT OBVIOUSLY CAME LOOSE DURING ULTRASONIC CLEANING. I ALREADY NOTE THE PUSHER WAS SOLDERED TO WORK WITH A SOLDERED CONTROL.

PUSHERd

WHILE I INSPECTED THE PARTS, IT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT TO MISS THIS. I DO NOT RECALL IT BEING ABSENT. I TOOK IT ALL THE WAY DOWN. I BELIEVE IT SIMPLY WAS SOLDERED. THE HEAT DRYING HAD TO CAUE THE PIECE TO COME LOOSE. IT DID NOT BELONG SO IT WAS NOT NOTICED. SAME WITH PUSHER.THE SOLDER CAME LOOSE. BUT UNDER MICROSCOPE I CAN SEE WHERE THEY USED LEAD SOLDER TO CHANGE THE PUSHER. I AM LOOKING FOR THE ARM WILL MAKE A PUSHER.

THE THIRD TIME PIECE IS AN AWESOME ILLINOIS
THAT SOMEONE ATTEMPED TO REILLUMINAT
E.
THE FACT IS THE DIAL WAS IN GOOD CONDITION, YET SOME ONE SCREWED UP THE DIAL BY USING   GREEN COLOR MODERN GERMAN DEVELOPED PHOSPHORUS LUMINOVA. PROBLEM WITH THIS WAS THAT ILLINOISE USED RADIUM. YES. BUT THOUGH IT MORE THAN LIKELY “GLOWED” GREEN ALL THE TIME, IT WAS WHITE BASE.  THE SAFE PHOSPHORENCE BASED AF LUMINOVA DOES NOT GLOW UNLESS CHARGED BY LIGHT, BUT IT GLOWS GREEN AND RESTSA IN WHITE.  YOU CAN TELL IT WAS PLACED ON AFTER.IN A SURELY NON PROFESSONAL AMATURE MANOR. THIS EFFECTS NOT JUST THE PRICE.

CURRENTLY THE FACT IS A PLATE MUST BE MADE THAT MATCHS THE EXISTING DIAL. THEN THE DIAL IS SOAKED TO REMOVE ALL PAINT. A NEW COAT OF PAINT, THEN THE FACE IS BULT. A SERIES OF STAMPS ARE USED TO OUTLNE EVERYTHING AS IT WAS ORIGINALLY. INCLUDING THE BUTLERS DIAL.  MATCHING THE OLD   STAMP FOR THE OUTLINED NUMBERS, ANOTHER FOR THE NAMES AND INFO. ONE FOR THE SUB SECONDS REGISTER, THIS IS A 1932/32 MODEL. THERE IS ONE STAMP FOR THE WHITE LUMINOVA THAT MATCHES
THE OUTLINED NUMBERS. THAT MEANS ALL NUMBERS ARE FILLED AT ONE TIME. THEN THE HANDS ARE HAND FILLED. WALLAH. LOOKS LIKE IT DID ORIGINALLY.WORTH 2 TO 4 TIMES THE VALUE 700 TO 900 APPRAISAL
