Is that a digital power-reserve indicator? How cool!

Yes - very nice.

All I can find is:

LIBAN - 'Montres LIBAN' J. BONNET Bienne

Mikrolisk gives:

J. Bonnet Zifferblätterm (?) Uhrwerke und Gehäuse (movements and cases); Biel (Bienne) registered 14.4.1903

Liban is French for Lebanon. There are a few examples on the web marked 'Liban Watch Co.' on the movement. Not much else to find I suspect.

I suspect it will have an Adolf Schild Ca. AS 1463 inside:

bidfun-db AS_1463: AS 1463

...the same as the AS 1382N but with the power reserve by window (rather than with a rotating hand). Alternatively a Felsa Cal. 699 Permutator:

The AS calibre has 36 hours power reserve, the Felsa 44. The maximum number on the power reserve when fully wound should help identify it.

Richer, when fully wound the number on the power reserve is 44.

Bump again.....


Emre,

Can you post this advert one more time if it is shows a chronograph? Any additional 1940's Liban Watch Co. adverts showing chromos would be great, too.


Mine's from what I believe is 1942 since "42" is stamped on the back.

Picture, as found with beautiful Val23 movement.





2 year old thread?!:)

while bumped, let me add this for future reference

Liban Ad from 1943:
