FS: LeJour Landeron 189 Dato Chronograph

On offer's a LeJour Carrera Dato powered by a Landeron 189. Tricolor dial, with a Telemeter scale from 12-3, Tachy from 3-12, and black writing on the dial proper; all lume plots are present and match the hands. Amazing red chrono seconds hand with a date window. The watch has great amplitude (280-300˚ depending on position), the date flips at midnight, chrono works well, resets to 12 each time, and keeps very good time (+/-15 seconds/day); the only hangup is that when the chronograph's activated, the minute totalizer almost always jumps out to 1 minute on just starting. It's a minor thing--at least to me--in that you just subtract a minute from the total. It's been in the shop for some other things (canon pinion, date wheel replacement), and I chose not to get a full service simply because it's such a minor thing. Regardless: it's there. The all stainless steel case is in great shape--no real marks other than very very light wear--and the dial is signed, but the logo's worn. There are initials pretty crudely scratched into the caseback, but that's about it.

Asking $850 for this; happy to provide more info or pictures on request, and references as well, and glad to work out shipping/payment method with buyer. Watch is located in and will ship from Indiana/USA. Thanks for looking, and for Jeff/CT for the space.
