    PARAT Movement Info Needed

    I was looking at a watch the other morning and was undecided about purchasing. The watch in question is a 1950's PARAT. Below is a picture of the movement. I was wondering if anyone had any information on the movement pictured below. The watch dial has no other markings other then PARAT. I know the movement picture is not much to go by, but it is all I have.

    This thread contains a tidbit on Parat watches but nothing on the movement.

    Thanks, I saw that link already. PARAT was the first German watch cooperative created in 1949 mainly thanks to the efforts of Philipp Weber to expand on the post. I am assuming perhaps Durowe movements were used, but I really have no clue and am guessing. Probably horribly at that. However, thank you for the help. It's much appreciated.

    Parat used a variety of watch movements - I have two, one a ladies' watch, both with OSCO (Otto Schlund & Co) movements. however, the one you have or are interested in has an ETA movement, something in the 2452 family:

    I have an ETA 2472 in a Provita from ca. 1965. Very efficient, space saving movement.

    Danke, Herr Richter.

    As I said my guess was horribly incorrect.
