    Great looking watch in fantastic condition. I believe I have seen Technos Sky Diver watches in a very similar case.

    Congrats! Very nice specimen.
    Stunning condition of the movement. It is a high beat version of AS 1687 modified in common efforts of Doxa, Eberhard, Favre-Leuba, Girard-Perregaux, and Zodiac

    When you will receive the watch, try to wind it manually. Notice how smooth winding is. If it is tough, then consider a service. It is common issue for movement of this family. Tough winding, if not addressed, will cause permanent damage of auto winding module.
    As well as try to set time. If setting hands is going without noticeable resistance, it means loose cannon pinion. It leads to minute and hour hands will not move while second hand is still running. Easily fixable though.
