These photos show the GO Calibre 39.

The "39" was (and still is, as it is still being used) the final development of the GUB Calibre 10-30  --  but, interestingly, a "detuned version" was used for a while by Union, who called it Calibre 26.

My understanding is that the Calibre 26 versions are much more sought after than ETA versions

If you do have a "26", Sir  --  chapeau!

Good thread.

I tend to prefer a decent automatic over manual winding as I'm getting a bit older so occasionally forget to wind a manual watch.

I will also admit to being a bit of a Rolex fan though, whilst making a decent movement, they're nowhere near my favourite one.

This could be my number 1 choice: -

A nice El Primero from around 1990. It makes a lovely noise with the high beat and is still pretty spot on with it's timing after all these years. :)

I only own one example of it but I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the Luch 3055.  It's a very ugly duckling that nevertheless goes to show that even a movement seeming to have been cobbled together from a home electronics kit can out-perform some of those posh Swiss movements despite all their fancy technology, decorations and finery.
