    That's a coincidence as I've just finished servicing a vintage
    ladies watch from the early fifties, a Beyer of Zurich with a FHF 125
    movement. Fifteen jewels, incabloc, the movement is of good quality
    comparable with A.S or ETA movements of that time. Definately not
    Longines or Omega quality but it is an excellent time keeper.

    Fabrique d'Horlogerie Fontainemelon (FHF) was a pure movement maker and never marketed under that name or abbreviation. They used to be one of the largest movement makers, I think that they are one of the (if not the) oldest and are a founding member of the ESA (Ebauches SA) which culminated in the modern ETA. I heard somewhere that Adolf Schild sold some watches under the label "Unicorn" but cannot vouch for this; FHF may have done the same but I certainly have't heard of such a practice.

    Thanks guys,
    I bought one OMAX brand watch when i check the movement i found it FHF 96 (st), and i already have one watch with an unknown Brand working with FHF 70, so i thought i might been ....ed with this movement as a beginner. :oops:
    I was willing to make a variety collection of movements (different made and different brands), but with this second FHF ? I don,t know.
    I need to be more carefull.
    Regards.

    Supposedly Rolex also sold watches under the "Unicorn" brand name too. Maybe we should compare our notes and see who we first heard this from. Maybe we might find the source of a modern urban legend.

    Unicorn was a Rolex brand mainly sold in Australia.

    Unicorn as a Schild brand, you would have heard from none other than Roland Ranfft:
