Here is my one and only German watch,  a Sothis Quantieme Spirit Of Moon with an ETA 2824 with Dubois Dupree Module.

If anyone hasn’t seen one of these before, here’s something a little different   -  the 21 jewels Ebosa 27 bumper. Unusually, the oscillating weight strikes on steel pins rather than the more conventional springs and some protection comes from what looks like a Neutro-Shock system.

This movement was apparently described in issue 17/1952 of the German The Watch magazine as “a new Roskopf automatic” and although not represented in the Ranfft archive is described in one of his auction sales as “absolutely rare”.

It lives inside my 1950s Burgana and is my only example of this almost mythical pin lever movement.

Regards.

I just had the back off my Sultana chronograph to see if it really is a Landeron 48 in there. Very exciting ... for me, anyway. :clap:

Never been brave enough to take the watch back off, so we'll just make do with the case being intact. Front shot then a back shot. 

First up Hamilton Khaki Navy GMT

next up, Omega Seamaster Professional

And finally Longines Master Collection 4x Retrograde.

That's my lot then. Nothing antique or too fancy. Sorry there's reflections but hope you enjoy them anyway.

Demier Freres were not, as far as I am aware, actually manufacturing watches in 1917, but I have not been able to identify who manufactured this ...

16''' Molnia 3608, probably designed mainly as a pocket watch movement but in some instances crammed into a wrist watch, like my 40mm Ural.

Three tone-lowering pin pallets.

Desa 221, the work of Ebauches Desa A.G., formed in Grenchen in 1937 by acquiring the factory of Otto Mengisen in Lengnau. Also made clocks and alarm clocks. Owned by the Hugi family until liquidation in 1990.

For the purposes of this thread (and to keep @JoT happy) here’s my day/date example of Seiko’s final iteration of their transistorized balance movements, the Elnix 16j 0703A.

Dates from between 1974 to 1976 after which these things seem to have disappeared from Mr Seiko’s oeuvre.

Regards.

" During the 1920s, Léon Lévy was approached by Ebauches S.A, who wanted Pierce to join the consortium. Léon, however, had a completely different direction in mind for his brand, and he refused the offer, allowing him to stay independent. This independence came at a cost: blacklisted by all the suppliers, Pierce couldn’t borrow or use pieces from the consortium companies, forcing the brand to come up with and develop their own manufacture calibres. As a result, Pierce invented more than 30 different calibres throughout the company’s history, two of them being chronograph movements."
