Vintage LAMONT COMPENSAMATIC mechanical chronograph watch from the 1950s.
Lamont was a subsidiary of Nivada / Croton.
Ca. 35 mm diameter. Powered by a Landeron 148 based movement, 17 jewels, 18000 A/h, power reserve ca. 41h.
The watch was short tested and it measures a pretty precise time. The chronograph is functioning well.
Compensamatic was featured in the vintage adds (last photos) of the 1950s as an advanced protection system for both altitude and temperature extremes.
The watch was matched with a stunning genuine crocodile leather strap with ardillon buckle.
