Beautiful and yet understated timepiece from ca.1960 by Bucherer Luzern.

It does offer you an affordable way to buy an high class automatic movement, and full calendar with moonphase! It is powered by Felsa 693, a great movement featuring patented Bidynator technology allowing the barrel to be wound while rotor moves in both directions. We add here an excellent unpolished case, elegant silver dial with raised markers and Roman numerals and have nothing to complain about at the end!

Unpolished thick 20 microns gold plated case. Fully-functional and keeping time perfectly. Case diameter without crown 35 mm

never used leather strap 23 cm lengh

The caliber Felsa 693, also called Bidynator, is the first automatic caliber with both sides acting flywheel rotor. A mechanical switch on gear-based polarized at the 1942 created movement the direction of movement of the flywheel.

When Rolex had blocked the overall market for these automatic moon phase calibers with the registration of its own patent on a triple calendar automatic movement, which has been issued as a self-development of Rolex, but in reality only a copy of the much earlier existing caliber AS 1402 N Adolph Schild S.A., Felsa brings additional sophistication supplement. Felsa founded in 1918 and 1928 is divided into the Ebauches Felsa AG, Lengnau (Canton of Bern), bypass the legal obstacles. In 1942 launched caliber Felsa 692/93 (11 1/2 lines, height 5.8 mm) caused a "switch" to gear based on the polarization of the rotor movement. The elevator was therefore made in both directions of rotation of the flywheel mass.

So do not miss the price rocket, prizes that will break records on the vintage watch market in the future.

It's as if a ray of sunshine were coming through the clouds.
They kindly smile to fellow human beings and reap love and benevolence.

    Horloge in goede orde ontvangen, alhoewel de foto's reeds aantoonden dat er sprake was van enige gebruikssporen, is dit in realiteit ernstiger dat de in formatie deed vermoeden.
