    haven't posted for a while, but I thought this was worth showing...

    I love the old Eternamatics and I would have been well pleased if it had been one of them but the lovely blue dial always does for me....by the way any info will be appreciated...

    NIce original strap...


    And buckle...

    And here's a close up of the back with the reference number...

    You are going to have to open it up and take a pic of the movement for us to tell much... I suspect it is an ESA electronic controlled balance wheel but only pics will say for sure.

    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    It says 'quartz'. I guess this is old enough that 'electronic' was still better understood than 'quartz' by the average buyer so they put both on the dial for good measure. AFAIK there was never an ESA electro-mech with quartz regulation.

    It's kind of funny seeing the 5 ball-bearing logo on a quartz watch.

    I suspect you are correct.

    I,ve owned a few Eternas, mostly Eternamatics, very underated company IMO, strangely (considering their reputation is built on mechanical watches) the only one i held onto was this blingy Galaxis quartz model
