    FHF 96 unfortunately.

    Edit: My apologies for being so cryptic. Each week, we get multiple posts from newcomers to the forum showing this movement in a fake or frankenwatch.

    Thats okay,
    I take it thats not a good movement? Or is mostly used in frankens?

    I found the watch on ebay and was interested in the dial.
    The seller does not have much info.

    Woomera is a missile testing range in the middle of Aus since the 40's, and the village of Woomera has only about 150-200 residents who are the military/workers at the range, so i dont think the watch is a tourist souvenir.

    I think the movement is perfectly fine, but it is often used in fakes and frankens. That's definitely an interesting dial.

    Re: Help ID this movement

    The style of the case, dial, and hands suggest the 1970s, and they all look like they match. Given the absence of any branding, regardless of whether the movement is original or replaced, this is essentially a curiosity, and it's in pretty rough condition. So if you want it, I suggest making a very low offer, because I can't imagine that too many people will be interested at the seller's asking price.

    Thanks for the information.
    The seller is good when it comes to offers, i have purchased a few pieces from this seller in the past, with offers well below asking price. Plus the current 10% off from ebay has me tempted.

    And who doesnt like rockets :)
