    Exacto from End of 1940s

    Hi!

    Today, an Exacto arrived from Austria - a real beauty! The dial has a cream colour with a golden gleam in the light, thin Feuille hands, a thin red second hand and golden attached arabic numerals. The case is in acceptable condition, the acrylic crystal had been scratched, but I could polish that out.
    Inside an ETA 1093 in perfect condition with 17 jewels. IMHO from the end of the 1940s and my first Exacto with ETA, all the others have AS 1237 with small second(they seem to have bought a large quantity of those). I´ve seen an ETA 1080(same movement, but 10,5 instead of 11,5''') in an Exacto Monorex from the later 1950s.
    The size is amazing for that time: 37 mm Ø without crown and 45 mm lug to lug.
    I mounted a lightbrown crok-band and strapped it on the wrist - here are some pics:



    ETA 1093

    Case reference is 1219
    Best regards, Mike

    I like that very much. Well bought.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.
