I Want To See Your Movements!

Inspired me to pop the back off the C65 I'm wearing today, I'd never taken a look inside this one previously.

Certainly a functional approach being a solid caseback rather than a display back.

Those posted by Yokel above are beautiful to look at, I'd almost be tempted to wear some of them upside down!

Decided to have a first look inside my FC Classic from the WRUW Today thread.

A little disappointed with the large plastic spacer, I guess the movement was originally designed for a watch smaller than the 40mm diameter of this watch.

It's a shame, it spoils the look of a nice movement.

A pocket watch rather than a wrist watch, and the daft thing is losing almost 20 minutes a day, but it is so pretty I have left it sat on my desk with the back on show (well the face is pointless due to its lack of timekeeping), but that regular tick and swing (well obviously not regular enough) is very relaxing.

My new square Larsson & Jennings Norse (NRS40-CMBLK-C-M-M-BB-O) hand winding:

Appears (to my untrained eye) to be pretty basic, but it is shiny and whilst it has the plastic ring, the spacer filing the case is metal, which is nice.

Pretty basic you say ?
 

You have an Peseux 7001 calibre movement, tried & tested over several decades.

The go to movement for several esteemed watch making companies!
 

Should serve you very well. :yes:

Awesome! Blind ignorance and assumption on my part.

I must say, I have enjoyed the watch all afternoon, twice people have mistaken it at a glance for an Apple watch (one going "I knew you'd see the light and get an apple watch") which then gave me great pleasure in showing them it was not only a proper watch, but a hand winding one at that!

I'll go with these three examples:

 

Girard-Perregaux Cal. 352 Quartz

Claimed by some to be the first mass-produced/commercially available quartz movement. Also used by Le Coultre.

Luch Cal. 3055 Electronic Balance Wheel

One of the few movements of this type made in the Soviet Union.

First Moscow Watch Factory Kirova Automatic

I've read that this was the first Soviet-made automatic movement. Not totally sure if that's true though.

Foggy, that Longines 13ZN is absolutely beautiful!

Those vintage ones do look nice. Its amazing what a tired looking case and dial can hide.

 

These are the only 2 movement shots I have of my watches, and its the fancy ones!
