Landeron Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Produce the Tribute to the GT 40 MK II

The GT 40 MK II is the name of a new Swiss made, Landeron designed watch that commemorates the 50th anniversary of the GT MK II vehicle that won the 24 Hours Le Mans Race in 1966.

Dan Elgrably, the owner and designer of Landeron, has been in the watch business for the past 22 years.  He has had a passion his entire life for vintage watches.  He began first by learning about different movements and what made one better than the other, then by learning how to fix them.  For the past 12 years, Elgrably has been designing the Landeron collections in small quantities.  By focusing on quality he has stayed loyal and faithful to the vintage look and incorporated the latest technology of Swiss movement with all the components of a high end watch.  Throughout the years, Landeron has sold thousands of watches through EBay and  With a 100% positive feedback rating on EBay, Elgrably is proud to state that he has never had a watch returned for any reason whatsoever.

With a Swiss manufacturer ready to produce the first 400 watches by the end of November 2016, Landeron is producing a watch that pays tribute to the iconic GT MK II.  The manufacturer in Switzerland is also capable of producing larger quantities when needed.
