    Tegrov tachymeter chrono watch info

    Greetings all.
    I have just found my old watch that i misplaced over 20 years ago.
    it works ok it seems, dont know how much winding it needs, no pitch change on the knob, or how long it runs for...

    wondering if its any worth or a cheap kknockoff of Sorna as they look the same too.

    I think its a badge engineered Sicura using an R .Lapanouse movement? Should look like this when you open it up.

    Based on the sub-dials, I'd say the movement is a Bettlach EB8421, and this style of case was used by Sicura amongst others and made in the 1970s. Clearly it is a budget Swiss attempt to imitate Seiko's very successful chronograph designs.

    (By the way, Tegrov is also a Swiss brand, founded in the 1950s. There is no Russian connection)
