    Visconte - another obscure French watch.

    I've had this for a while, but its been somewhat neglected so I thought I'd give it a moment of fame:




    The movement is a Lorsa P62 (I think):

    And its working fine right now on my wrist.

    "water protected" New term to me! Do you think the caseback is original?

    Nice dial!
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "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!

    I think I've seen 'water protected' before. But it is 'waterproof' on the dial - so doubly safe.

    The back is a very good fit - afaik its original.
