CANTERBURY ANTI-MAGNETIC 1940's LANDERON 51 36MM SCREWBACK ALL STEEL MANUAL WINDCanterbury
For auction is a 1940s Canterbury Anti-Magnetic Landeron 51 manual winding 36mm all steel chronograph waterproof beveled screwback case by H. Fried Co. with round pushers. Dial, though it shows some age, is in a remarkably well preserved condition all things considered, the white is still pretty white and that is rare. The radium 12 and 6 and round markers have aged beautifully into an almost ochre color. The case too is terrific; it is easy to forget when looking at watches from this early era that stainless steel was a premium material. Most watches were made with chrome upper and steel backs. To have all steel was a really big upgrade. In fact the steel compositions and formulations were still being refined leading to a variation in how these older steels look/feel (enversteel, etc). And to get a round (pump) pusher case with a threaded screwdown steel back for maximum protection from the elements was the most premium. So much so that the watch looks great in its 70s and is still functional and wearable everyday.
