I've got this Landau that I'm looking for some more information.

The movement is signed Max Landau & Co and that it is from Germany.
I tried to look it up on the ranfft guide, but just couldn't seem to pick it out.

Anyone care to shed some light on what it might be?

Here are the pics:

Put "Ultramatic" into the search box on Ranfft's site and you'll find them. It a Hermann Becker, either a 112, 312 or 412 (not sure how to tell which). I like the markers at 3 and 9.

Didn't even think to put in "Ultramatic" in the search engine. D'oh!
Just from the rotor, it appears closest to the 112. Although mine is a 17 jewel and not 25, but probably in the same family I would suppose.

Thanks AbslomRob!

Hi TheJohnP,

I tried to look it up on the ranfft guide, but just couldn't seem to pick it out.
Sorry there was an error within the codes for visual features. So you couldn't find the calibre.
It was corrected, and now only the shape of the balance cock and the stud holder, and
the rotor winding in the advanced search reduce the number of calibres from 7580 to 4,
among them 3 HB calibres (including your HB 112).

Regards, Roland Ranfft

I'm sure it was less coding and my inexperience!

But thanks for that heads up.
Very much appreciated.
