    It looks as if it dates to the 1960s. I am not very familiar with the Exactus brand although I have seen Exactus watches that date as early as the 1940s.
    No mechanical watch needs 41 jewels so that is mostly marketing rather than a technical thing.

    Exactus seems to be associated with Precimax - maybe established in 1953. See:

    Precimax was absorbed into the Ebauches group in 1941 (which is all confusing to me) so the chances are that it will have a fairly common movement that most watchmakers can mend.

    Thank you guys. I hope more to come.

    I have checked the links. Interesting that ETA actually was born in the lat '20s.
    Not really clear the state of Precimax. Est. in 1953 and absorbed in 1941?

    Sorry - poor punctuation. I meant Exactus formed (maybe) in 1953; Precimax absorbed in 1941. Precimax was formed in 1933 in Neuchatel by S. Tripet.
