Guys and Gals...
This arrived a couple of weeks ago in a state... Case was very dirty, as was the cheap expanding bracelet. The Crystal was beyond saving... crazed all over... to the point where I was not a 100% sure of the dial condition..
I took it to my local watch guy for a replacement crystal... picked it up today!
The Movement is in top condition...
The 1414UD movement:
bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Eterna 1411UD
From looking at Rolands info... I guess the watch dates to the early 60s? Both the movement and case back has a serial number... can these be used to date the watch?
Also Roland, says the movement comes in 17 and 21 jewel... is there any way of knowing which this is?
One surprise the watch gave me was the case... it had been described as gold coloured... so was not expecting much! Its not solid gold... but it has by far the thickest coating I have seen... stamped between the lugs... Gold Filled 80 microns.... The most I have seen was on a Omega.. at 40 microns. As such, there is not wear to the lugs/case... Is this a sign of Quality?
Any info on the date/serial numbers/movement/case... would be helpful... general comments are always welcome to..
Thanks for looking!
