New addition

Just wanted to share my latest addition, a ref 6565 with a cal 1002/1. The watch itself is in a wonderful condition but the movement needs an overhaul.  Regarding the movement: as you can see it is rather dirty and has (at least ?) one non original part (not sure what it does but it's right in the middle, see the picture of the excellent 1002 in doc's watch to compare). Anyway, after some serious discussion about the movement condition I got it for a very fair price (..) and now it is here I find it a small but very elegant piece with an interesting movement (once in a good restored condition). Besides the gyromax are there any other differences between the 1002 and 1002/1 ?

Thank you for looking,

best regards,

movement needs cleaning but doesn't look scratched up so it will certainly find its original luster.

Have a look at the index

Now back to the sun, and my book

But it's sure a wonderful VC you got there !



Doc the movement you posted is a cal 1002 whereas Mark's is cal1002/1

thus with a Gyromax balance and consequently not regulated by an index

Hi Alex, that's the point !!
