    Vintage & Pocket watches
    Today I received a lovely gold plated Lanco and I'd love to learn more about it. I've Googled loads and emailed Swatch Group in the hope they inherited Langendorf's archives from when SIHH acquired them, but of course I know the best source of knowledge is right here :) It has a Langendorf...

  6. Lanco, Langendorf 722 movement 1930s-1940s

    I just bought a Lanco, 15 jewels, presumably from 1930's or 1940's. (Swiss made.) Here are two pics (taken by the guy who sold it - the watch seems bigger than it really is). I guess he chose an adolescent with a really small hand to take the photo. I did not realize how small it is when I...

  9. Lanco movement?

    Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi, Any idea what movement this is? It's in 70's Lanco. Winding is unidirectional and it has day-date complication with quick-set. Sorry for the gigantic image size but it's easier to see details like this.

    This is rare, hard to find Lanco 3 sub chrono with the famed Valjoux 7736 movement. This watch is from my personal collection and is near mint condition. The case is perfect with no dings or scratches and is all original. There is very little aging on the dial, but some is present and can be...

    Vintage & Pocket watches
    I've finally taken some pics of another watch I'd love some help identifying! This one was in for service (I really like it) so I didn't have a chance until now. The dial reads "LANCO 17 Jewels Incabloc Swiss", and of course I know what that means :-) I even have a rudimentary history of...
