    41J Rotary Super Compressor

    I posted an inquiry a few weeks back about this watch. There wasn't much info to be had, but it was only $75 so I picked it up yesterday anyway.

    It seems like a solid, quality watch and I actually really, really like it.

    Here it is in all it's glory.....

    A. Schild 1581 movement (I also see 1641, I think, beside the 1581 mark?)....where did they put all the jewels? Rotor rollers?

    Nice watch. The click wheels should be stuffed full with some of the extra jewels to raise the count but they're hidden under the automatic winding bridge.....

    Nice piece! Well worth the price given the excellent condition.

    There was just a thread on excess jeweling. That provides the long answer. But the short answer to where they put the extra jewels is everywhere they could! LOL

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    No wonder you're pleased with it! A most handsome piece.

    Thanks! I am really enjoying it and it's keeping great time. Can anyone tell me what the 1641 beside the movement number means?

    Well bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: AS 1581 says 'just minor differences between 1581, 1628, 1641, 1665' so I would guess that yours is a 1641 - being a slightly modified 1581.

    Or as is sometimes the case, the baseplate is used for both models and so carries both stamps.
