    Hello everybody/Favre Leuba Daymatic

    First post here, I just fell head over heels for a Favre Leuba Daymatic, a brand I didn´t know existed this morning. Can anyone tell me something about this watch? I´m having problems researching it.

    favre leuba was a good brand back in the days but your example seems to have suffered from bad care, spotted dial, somewhat rusted movement. Movement is the zodiac 70 http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...uswk&Zodiac_70. Not easy to service movement and spare parts are rare.

    I like the aged look of the dial, but like georges says movement could do with full service. great little piece, once serviced will keep running more years to come

    Yeah, I really like the minimalist look with no numbers, and don't really care if the dial is a bit worn. I think it gives the watch character. Also, it distinguishes the piece from the multitudes of indian restorations with new dials out there. I will certainly take it to be serviced,thanks for the input!

    Btw, how old do you think it is, mid-sixties?

    I'd say it was a mid 1960s model, somewhat later than my one from the 1950s:

    Thanks. As regards the movement, I am unable to comment as my watch has a different movement, so comparison is regretfully impossible. Mine is a lovely watch, I just wish the case condition were better, as it is quite badly worn. As a result I barely wear it.
