Rare Vintage Lanco-Fon Mens Alarm Watch Swiss Made. A large and rare vintage watch with alarm complication. Watch runs and alarm functions but would recommend getting it serviced. Case is gold marked Plague G20 PB.
Case size width is 38mm across not including the crown. Crystal is clean with only minor scratches from storage. Caseback is marked "SWISS MADE LANCO-FON STAINLESS STEEL BACK" in good condition with some very minor scratches. Original manual winding Langendorf calibre 1241 and original dust cover is running well but would recommend having the watch serviced.Original dial with raised markers is in great condition with some light marks and patina. Alarm "on / off" indicator at the 12 o'clock position functions beautifully. 18mm lightly used brown strap is included and the watch case is in excellent condition showing very few marks or scratches and is excellent considering its age. Not checked for water resistance and should be serviced as service history is unknown. As this is a vintage watch I cannot guarantee timekeeping although it runs well and appears to keep good time.
Note: Single crown is designed to perform several functions: Winding the watch movement, wind alarm, set alarm time, set time, set alarm (on with red dot at 12) and set alarm off (with white dot at 12). The watch movement is wound turning towards the 6 o'clock direction with the crown pushed in. By rotating the crown whilst pushed in towards the 12 o'clock direction winds the alarm keep winding until the alarm rings, this indicates it is fully wound, then turn the crown slightly to towards 6 o'clock to set. Pull crown out 2 clicks and rotate crown towards 6 o'clock direction to set watch time.Set alarm'ON' by pushing the crown all the way in and turn the crown ever so slightly towards 12 o'clock direction until the red marker appears within the aperture at 12. Turn alarm'OFF' by pushing the crown all the way in and turn the crown towards 6 o'clock direction until the white marker appears within the aperture at 12.
