    Favre Leuba identification help needed

    Hello there, I was given this watch by my dad in the 1970s and wondered if anybody had any information on it?
    I've trawled the 'net and searched images etc to no avail.
    I've also sent two web enquiries and two e-mails to FL with a phot but they haven't even replied in three weeks, hence my visit here to see if anyone could asist.

    I wouldn't be totally surprised to find it a fake but just wanted to know either way. It still works

    Picture is here:


    Thanks in advance

    A pic of the movement would give us more info. F-L is a old line Swiss maker which has just emerged from bankruptcy. The company has now positioned itself to build very high end watches which are priced beyond my interests. But this watch came from the era where them made good moderately priced watches in volume.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    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!

    I can't get the back off at the moment. Might have another go over the w/e and post a pic if I manage (without cutting my fingers off!)

    OK, can't get the back off. Any thought on what the model might be? Like I say, I've contacted FL on 4 occassions but they don't even reply (nice company!)

    It may not have had a model name at all. Unless there is a model name on the dial, which this one hasn't got, then it probably would have just had a reference number. I don't think I've seen one quite like it before.

    BTW, I've had (have?) watches that I have been very hard to get into. In my experience, the harder it is to get a case back off the harder it is to get it back on again!
