    As French as French can be, this Vatelrup made by Marcel Ruprecht in Villers-le-Lac, probably in the 1950s or maybe slightly earlier. Powered by a 17j Cupillard 233 in a 33mm stainless steel case, it was bought three years ago, COA'd, and then worn once before being stored pending some wrist time which never happened, until today. When it re-emerged five days ago, I set it with the Atomic Clock and, having kept it running, I'm unable to visually detect any time loss or gain since then.

    I'm really quite impressed with this old thing, and grateful to be the beneficiary of decent skills having been applied to a mass-produced cheapo more than half a century ago.

    Regards.

    Still with the citizen today. Switched the original band for a leather one.

    Nice! I like the exotic Antichoc 51. Is the watch all steel?

    Looks great, with that red accent on the dial. And I really like the fancy shock protection device.

    Thank you and, yes, all-steel case. Incidentally, it tells me that it prefers "exotique", rather than this English nonsense. Zut alors!

    Many thanks, but it would really rather be a Turler Roamer!
