For sale from my personal collection is this very rare and unique 100% original 1950’s Lanco Lanco-fon mechanical alarm watch.
These watches hardly ever come for sale so if you want one, here is your chance!

Contrary to alarm watches like the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox, Vulcain Cricket or Tissot Sonorous who use two separate crowns the Lanco-Fon is the only alarm wristwatch which uses just one crown to set the time, set the alarm time and switch the alarm on and off.
When the alarm goes off you here a nice buzzing/chiming sound and feel a vibration.

The Langendorf Watch Company made their own movements and eventually became part of what now is the Swatch group, the brand seized to be as a result of the quartz crisis in the seventies.

The case is 36.1mm in diameter but due to the light dial and small bezel wears larger than the numbers suggest, the lug to lug length is 45mm.
The elegantly curved lugs have been drilled through so changing straps is easy.
The dial is vibrant silver with very light vertical brushing, black railway minute track and a very cool contrasting blue 15 minute track for a more exact setting of the alarm!
Just above the golden 12 ‘o clock triangle you can see the little round alarm indicator, red is alarm on, white is alarm off.
The watch has got gilded hands and indices, a contrasting red seconds hand and the alarm hand is gilded with a vibrant red triangle at the top.
A new, domed acrylic crystal just like the original has been fitted.
Inside ticks the in-house Langendorf 1421 handwinder movement, 17 jewels and two barrels, one main spring and one alarm spring.
The watch has just been serviced by my watch maker and although 60+ years old runs very fine, please keep in mind that vintage watches aren’t as exact functioning as a modern day watch.

The watch comes on a new high quality cognac-brown original Teju lizard strap.

Since my collection has gotten too large again it is time to make some choices, so this rare bird may leave.

445 EURO

Excluding shipping.

If you have any question please send me a DM in German, English or Dutch and I will answer as soon as possible.

Operating instruction
Winding watch and alarm
: The movement has separate barrels for watch and alarm. They are wound as follows, when the crown is pushed in:
Watch: turn crown in 6h direction.
Alarm: turn crown in 12h direction.
Attention: A resistance in either direction indicates that the corresponding barrel is fully wound. In this case continue winding only in the other direction.
Set time: Pull crown completely and turn it in 6h direction.
Set alarm: Pull crown half out and turn it in 12h direction.
Alarm on: Turn crown a bit in 12h direction, until a colored spot appears in the indicator aperture.
Alarm off: Turn crown a bit in 6h direction, until the colored spot in the indicator aperture disappears.



I am located in The Netherlands and ship worldwide.
I am a collector who sometimes has to sell a watch from his collection so that is does not get too large, therefor I am a private seller, I am a regular at Uhrforum, WUS and the Dutch horlogeforum, there is plenty feedback obtainable.
