    Brusel isn't an official name and people tend to use it for various similar models. It's kind of a ridiculous fight among "experts".
    According to the bible, yours is a 68 143 1 from 1967, but with a slight variation of the dial (17 jewels and Incabloc written on the right side of the dial). The exact same dial is found on another case from 1970.

    Not normal, especially considering the selling price. Did you buy it new ? Is it still under warranty ?

    No, I still went to get it (personally) with my old car (so over 5yr ago). I remember - I sold my entire Russian watch collection and decided to get a Prim. It has riddicous positional deviation (about 40s/day), likely due to too much play in the balance bearings. I regulated it myself and now when I wear it for a day and take it off for night it keeps time. I don’t care - it’s more like a piece of jewellery - I have a cell phone for accuracy ;)

    I remember your post and the photographs that accompanied the text. It was a great read and has obviously lingered long in my memory. I also remember your disappointment that such an expensive and new watch proved to be so inaccurate.

    Re: Any Prim Lovers

    I just found and read this interesting post by pmwas. Unfortunately, there aren't pictures anymore.
    I understand the frustration. I guess it would have been necessary to get it fixed immediately.
    I'm usually not even able to say if the watch i'm wearing is 1 or 3 minutes slow or fast at the end of the day, but that's only because they are old soviet watches. If i were to buy such an expensive new watch with in-house movement, i certainly would care more.
    @pmwas, could you please post some new pictures of your Linea ?
