    The sub-seconds Hafis has an AS 984, which means there's plenty of parts for it out there. Inside the Arcadia there's an ETA 2452 or 2456- depending on the size. IMO the Cortebert is the nicest piece of these. Balance staff issue... You'll probably be able to find a replacement, but there's a bigger issue for the majority of the watches you've bought- worn chrome plating. And looks like the sub-seconds Hafis has the plating most worn of them all.

    I'll agree too, the Cortebert is the star. Nice iconic late 40s, early 50s styling. Looks mostly dirty rather than extensive plating damage. Anyway nice one.

    Hmmm, I think I have a sister to your Hafis somewhere.
