    Good lord! That's the moderately legendary Peseux 7001 with a handful of extra jewels, decorative and functional finishing and shock protected jewels on the third, fourth and escape wheel. That must have cost a fortune as a very posh dress watch pack in the day! Mind you, if you want it in a Stowa Antea today it will set you back a grand or more, while the Nomos and even Omega (Cal.651) seem to be holding their value well! On the other hand, the Blancpain 7002 (Cal .64-1) chronometer seems to be positively overpriced these days! (It's probably the effort they made to disguise the movement by shaping the bridges just so... ) Of course, yours has a higher spec than any of theirs. Blued screws, ultra fine finishing and rhodium plating look nice, but a jewelled going train is definitely the trump card.

    I'm not joking about the Omega:

    Or Nomos:

    (which gives you an idea about just how neat a little movement this is).

    That was much easier than I expected!

    More to the point, I'll be taking Juvenia far more seriously from now onwards.

    I've fallen for the funky 70's vibe of the Juvenia, it's so cool!

    I was thinking are you going to do some pics of your entry to give it the best chance ?

    Thanks, Matt!

    I have a Soprod-modified 7001 with power reserve in the Equation of Time Model 22 Deck Watch. It's a lovely little movement and an absolute joy to wind. I was actually unaware that there was a 23-jewel variant. Most 7001's I've seen are the 17-jewel variant.

    If you remember, I had to drop out as the movement on mine was dead

    So I was scooting around the Juvenia offerings on ebay to see if any caught my eye and:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NOS-NEW-SW...wAAOSwdc5ZcTF8

    Also available in black!

    Mind you, I'm really quite tempted by this:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MENS-JUVEN...wAAOSwLqFV88my

    because apart from anything else, I can recognise a porcelain dial when I see one. Now I need to work out what's inside and how it all goes together.

    The EOT stuff looks interesting. I'm not surprised as ETA appear to have the 7001 positioned as the handwind equivalent of the 2892 in much the same way that the 2801 as the equivalent to the 2824.

    I have also seen a yellow gold ladies' model that appears to be about the same overall diameter but the bezel is much larger.

    The second one you posted has a lovely case. I'd be curious what's inside that one.

    This vote is tough for me. The Juvenia is more special, definitely a beauty on the inside, but I wouldn't wear it. The Pulsar is bog standard but I could imagine giving it wrist time. Do guts win over wearability? Maybe in this case ...
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.
