Comments about the data

option: 3 pushers (reset with crown pusher)
first chronograph with cam switching
just shortly produced predecessor of the Landeron-48 family
From the Landeron 47 to the 48 there was a floating transition. Many parts were modified, but except the minute-recorder jumper all are interchangable. Samples with all features of the Landeron 47 (like the examples) are pretty rare, and therefore can be dated to the first production year.

*) Squint-eyed chronograph (Fig.3):
The axles of sub dials (white) and stem (red) are not aligned on one line, and chronographs with this calibre look anyhow squint-eyed. Moreover the sub dials have differing distances to the center-hand axle. But this is less noticable if the sub dials have different sizes.
Both has no technical reasons; it is just botch design. Already the early pillar-wheel calibres Landeron 11 and 13 got these oddities, and they remained, over the first cam-switching calibre Landeron 47/48, down to the very last generation of the family.

Example, year: signature; shock device
1-3) 1937: - Brevet+
3-4) 1937: - Brevet+ (3 pushers)
