Case for Landeron 48 Chronograph movement

Question

I currently have 3 Landeron 48 movements without cases that are working and I need cases for them. I have searched ebay and the only cases I can find cost more than the movements. Does anyone know of a source for used cases? I don't care if they are in great condition as long as they are complete or just missing the crystal. Like many of you, I do this as a hobby and don't have a lot of money to invest. So I need them to be as affordable as possible. Thanks for any info.

My problem too. I have three quality ETA 7001 movements that need cases but have not been able to source any for months.

What would you pay? I just had replated a Gladiador brand Nickel plated case for a Landeron 48.
The movement appears to be lost somewhere, it was at my parents house and then we moved. It is complete with pushers and crown/stem.

It originally had wire lugs and I had them cut off and holes drilled by Replateit.com which they did a sensational job on.
Comes with crystal and bezel and polished case back.

It owes me $120 AUD at this stage so I can put some pictures up and you can have a think (AUD to USD makes it around 81USD).

I am interested in the case. Can you post some pictures and your price for the case.

Actually that can't be done because there is a no sales policy here. Use PM or email for that.

    • Yes I hijacked this thread, did not mean to , sorry sorry.  
    • Your measurements of 8.75 x 21mm put this at a ligne size of 3.75 x 9.25 (or perhaps 4 x 9.5). There aren't that many movements of this size and the most common is the FHF 59 (which other manufacturers used as well and gave their own movement ID to). Unfortunately it's not this as the keyless works and bridge layout are completely different to your movement. Which brings me on to your probability of an ETA 651. That's a no ... at 10 x 22.7mm it's larger than yours and of course the keyless works (and bridge layout) are different. In my searching I had also come across the ETA 746 but it's the same story. I have spent ages looking through stuff trying to find your movement but no luck.   I've found setting lever springs that look similar but then a no-go on the movement size; a (Van) Buren movement looked promising but didn't tie up etc. etc. I hope someone strikes lucky!
    • Hi Nickelsilver, Thank you for all the help.  Will search for the tech sheet. I have many used genuine hairsprings and balances that I have been vibrating together. Need to place order for more hairsprings of compatible springness.  Been trying to experimentally find a compatible HS of known CGS.   Strength is proportional to area of the coil outer circle. I think I may find CGS direct out of this tables.  Will keep you posted.  Thank you, great help.   Best      
    • Found one of the tables, it's in French but easy to figure out.   If doing the test spring process, the formula is K=K' (D/D') 2 K is the CGS number you're looking for K' is the CGS of the spring you test D is the diameter of spring you need, at the pinning point D' is the diameter of the correctly vibrated test spring at the pinning point.   Sorry to the OP Joe and I are hijacking the thread a bit, maybe a mod could move it to a new thread?    
    • Thank you all for your kind welcomes.
