Beautiful mono pusher Leonidas chronograph with Valjoux 5

Beautiful white dial Leonidas watch with two sub dials, three o’clock for the minutes and nine of clock for the seconds. Each hour is marked with a baton. On the outer of the dial comes a telemeter up to one kilometer and tachymeter up to 1000. Hands are black with baton style. It is a mono pusher watch. It is a service dial and was redone a very long time ago. Because it was done a very long time ago, it does not take any value to the aesthetic of the watch and financial value. The lugs on this watch are particularly beautiful. It is a stainless back case with engraved inside “104690”. The watch comes with a manual winding movement and caliber Valjoux 5 and 17 jewels. The watch has a brown leather strap. Width between lugs is 16mm.

History

Julien Bourquin started his company in 1841 in the Saint Imier as Leonidas, name of the king of Sparta. It started with affordable watches and pieces measuring the time. Leonidas is famous for the production of stopwatches and chronographs with counters. In the early 20 century, many countries were using Leonidas watches like Germany, France, Japan, United States to name a few. In 1964, the company merged the Heuer Company. The new company called Heuer Leonidas SA specialized in stopwatches and chronographs.
