There comes a point in one’s life when change no longer feels like progress.
Often when reminiscing about the past, we wish to taste the foods of our youth, look back at the clothes we once wore or drive the cars we previously owned. The Historiador Landeron indulges the desires of nostalgic horophiles.
Landeron was a Swiss movement maker, founded in the late 19th century.
In 1924, the Swiss firm began producing chronograph movements and thereafter gained a reputation for making this type of complication. This specialist company continued to make chronograph movements until the advent of the quartz watch and the temporary decline of mechanical watch sales. Sadly, like many firms in the 1970s, despite making impressive products, the company ceased trading.
Feuille-shaped hour and minute hands succinctly convey the prevailing time. The dial features two subdials, arranged on an east-west axis, a 45-minute chronograph register, positioned adjacent the crown, and a small seconds display opposite. The scale and position of the subdials imbues the display with a becoming symmetry, augmenting the overall aesthetic.
