I picked up a red dial Locman "1970" on ebay today.
(All photos pulled from seller bidfortime.)
The seller description says it has an ETA 2824 movement. The watch itself references a Swiss movement on several occasions.
In my research on Locmans (Locmen?), I noticed most of the movements in 1970s and other Locman models were either quartz or Miyota automatics.
If any one knows any history about movements in Locman 1970s, sharing any insight whether a batch of 1970s was made with ETAs would be greatly appreciated. Even "bad news" is welcome. Not that I find this likely, but if you feel/know that all the references to a Swiss movement are dubious, then please let me know.
Thanks a lot.
