    Festina Prima La Chaux De-Fonds


    Well have the Festina above and below a watch that I think first started out as a ladies pocket watch due to size and the movement type barrel lever ? has foreign on the dial think it is Swiss or French but have not really got a clue no really marking to speak of to date it or locate to a country. so think I will have to be on the look out for more letter F watches so what you got then.




    foreign Swiss/French maybe ?


    so lets seem them. am interested to see what will be shown

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Favre-Leuba for me, too--a caliber 253 Twinpower movement, from the late 60's. The movement was quite flat and well-made for the price at the time, with two mainsprings, a Glucydur balance, and a full balance bridge.

    The "iconic" F71 (I hope this does not get me in trouble....). Not my pic, but I have the watch and it's really nice. Actually, it's a Bernhardt Binnacle Anchor with a custom dial and caseback. And a normal, and very good, bracelet.
