    Chinese Unitas closeups

    Here's a few macros of the ubiquitous Chinese Unitas 6497 movement:



    A bit more artsy in B&W (this is actually a 5 exposure stack to overcome the shallow DOF on the Raynox macro lens):


    More traditional B&W:


    Enjoy!

    Very nice photographs! Thanks for sharing.

    This is actually a Sea-Gull ST3620 movement. They use the larger 2-screw pallet bridge. The other manufacturer of these 6497/6498 movements is Hangzhou. The Hangzhou 9000 series movements all use the older style 1-screw "curved finger" pallet bridge.

    Cheers,
