Decay Meets Progress
Langendorf (Lanco), formerly one of the biggest manufacturers of medium and high grade watches, was acquired by the SSIH (today Swatch Group) in 1973. They had a large gap between their top brands Omega, Tissot, and their bottom brands Agon, Buler. And there they placed Langendorf. So Langendorf continued with enhanced pinlevers, but also watches with down.graded Tissot movements. This decay of the brand Lanco met the enhancement of pinlevers still at the beginning of the quartz crisis.  With jewel bearings these movements can compete with Swiss-lever movements refering durability, but of course not refering accuracy.
