Helvetia Swissonic Dynatron

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd show my new arrival. A first for me, an ESA Dynatron 9154 movement. Battery powered but with a balance wheel.

Dial was loose and so hands were rubbing and the seconds hand had fallen off but that didn't take long to fix and it's now running fine. Interesting period in watchmaking.

Nice i had a Roamer Mustang with the Swissonic electronic balance wheel and circuit. Unfortunately it was in poor condition and died. If i find another i may well get it.

In 2008 [Approx.], Gevril purchased several NOS ESA Dynatron 9158 movements. Enough to make a limited run of 500.

A great watch and indeed and very interesting period. Is the back case similar to this?

Yes, exactly the same save for the addition of a case number at the bottom. I have found quite a few other SGT branded, Sandoz, Avia etc. watches that are the same or slight variants of dial colour etc.

That's a shame, nice watch. I'm surprised mine is running so well now. I think they are pretty reliable movements generally.

Bought as a a 'non runner' and fault traced to a corrosion damaged circuit board......original circuit seen here :-

A replacement NOS board was found on eBay from a Dutch seller (strangely the board arrived, having been posted in Switzerland....).

Board changed and the watch now fitted on a suitable period style mesh bracelet.....
