    I don't know anything much about Eternas, but that's a 'bumper' mov't in there. It looks like it needs some TLC tho.........is it working??

    Yes, it sure does need TLC, but believe it or not, after sitting in a drawer for decades, it started running without too much trouble. It is keeping great time, at least for now.

    With the movement number you can email Eterna and request they check their records for information on your watch. I've found them very helpful.

    Thanks. I emailed them but I think I sent the wrong number. I quoted the number on the back cover. Once I swung the arm out of the way in the movement, I saw the movement number. Your hint made me look more closely.
    Cheers, Bruce

    What has your experience been in terms of turn around time for a response? I used their "contact us" feature on the web site the beginning of the week but have not heard back.
