Ploprof to start the work week.
Dive watch fanatic since 1980
With my Dilecta on real color scheme Bond Nato.
As far as I know (not so much information) it's from the 70's, and at this time already some small companies were assembling parts together.
It was a french micro brand, it is powered by a swiss engine as written on the dial : Ebauche Suisse.
Now for the quick story : this watch was bought in the 70's by my granddad.
He forgot it in a drawer in the 80's and one day recovered it around year 2000, he gave it to me not long before he passed away.
So as an homage, I got the watch serviced and repaired with second hand parts, now it's running but cannot quickchange the date and of course it is not "Etanche" anymore.
