    Louvic with bidynator movement

    This isn't going to win any "minty fresh" competitions, but I thought it was interesting..4.99 plus shipping from the bay. It runs. Maybe a candidate for restoration..

    Re: Louvic with bidynator movement

    It's the weekend for Felsa, I guess. I just picked up a Hafis with a Felsa 692 at a garage sale for $4 this morning. Mine's the "date" version of yours, although Hafis uses a custom rotor, and mine is 25j. Will post pics later when I get the camera hooked up.

    Here's Ranfft's page on yours: http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...uswk&Felsa_690

    And mine: http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...uswk&Felsa_692

    Mine's almost identical to the Suter, but without the regulator.

    Anyone that doesn't find the dial on a Louvic or a Medana entertaining needs hit!

    Man, I love that one. If I'd seen it first, I would have bought it!

    Here ya go. Probably won't get around to cleaning it up for a while, but the case lugs are neat, and I've been needing an auto with date.

    Anyone know if this watch is supposed to have a particular type of band? The lug design makes me think that there's a band that integrates with it.

    That should clean up nicely! It looks like it could need a special band due to the angling of the lugs..
