    Meeting the movement 135 and its designer

    Dear All,

    Here is a link to an article (and a podcast) related to a meeting with Ephrem Jobin the designer of this 135 movement, when he was 100 years old.
    This comes from the site "Forum à Montres (FAM)" and is proposed by ZEN, an authority when it comes to Zenith watches.
    It's in french.
    Hope it will be of interest notwithstanding it is in french.

    Thanks for the link. I remember an article in one of the German watch magazines (not Klassik Uhren - I don't get that one) that was essentially a shorter version of that. Jobin got a "Cal. 135" Elite watch (i.e. a special Elite version with subseconds redirected to 6:00 and without date) for his 100th birthday - the watch he is wearing in the piccies.

    Thanks for posting the link. It's an update of one or two old articles, now including also a podcast of an exclusive interview with Ephrem Jobin.
