    Question Question about my U-Boat left hook B45-08 quartz movement...

    I recently acquired a U-Boat Left Hook B45-08. I have done some research and for the life of me I cannot find out what quartz movement it has. All I can find in any description is "Swiss Quartz". I would like to know what model swiss quartz it has?

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks

    I didn't know they had Swiss Quartz models.

    It could be a Ronda quartz movement.

    That's what I am assuming as well but I don't know for sure.

    I just never knew they made quartz watches, I thought they were all automatic.

    Ok, I just really honestly never knew they made quartz models.

    If I had to guess which movement, I would say Ronda 515.

    OK..after doing some more searching on this forum it seems they did make quartz models but are discontinued....now to find some hard evidence as to the model. And I would agree with you that it would be a Ronda movement.

    I have looked around and found they used a Miyota 550.

    ETA has quite a number of quartz movements, including some excellent thermocompensated ones. They can be found in Omega Constellation Double Eagle Perpetual Calendars, Breitlings, Sinns, Chopards, Longines among others.
