    Tenor Dorly movement:

    Hello all,

    Does anyone know what the quality on their jumping hour movement is like? Im thinking about getting a watch with this movement, so i'd like to know if would last... especially since the watch is not a cheap one...

    I would really appreciate any input you guys might have on this movement
    A person with one watch knows what time it is; a person with two watches is never sure...

    Never heard of it. I have an Elgin jumping hour... but I doubt they share the same movement

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    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!

    Tenor-Dorly used an in-house design, fully-jewelled, jewlled-lever movement in their jump-hour watches that was far superior in quality to the great majority of Swiss jump-hours.

    Hi there,

    among the watch companies making in-house movements, Tenor & Dorly
    won doubtlessly the competition for the shortest history for ever:
    http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...&&2uswk&TD_000

    Anyway, if a small company designs an own calibre line, while all other
    dropped AS or ETA in tins, one can imagine that they know how to do it
    right. And as it was a completely new design, they could start from the
    70s state of art - no need to redesign an existing old fashioned product.

    These movements are no beauties, but of good quality, and according to
    the demand of the seventies easily servicable.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft
