Quote from: bumo79 on August 08, 2023, 05:39:40 AMYou mentioned in an earlier post, "the infamous ETA 6497", does that mean it is weak and breaks ?

LOL, typo. My T9 reversed meaning here. Should be famous.

Something amazing. Thank you so much Yuriy for sharing these pictures and information about this model. I have been looking for this watch for several years and would like to complete my collection with it. You mentioned in an earlier post, "the infamous ETA 6497", does that mean it is weak and breaks ? Exactly this movement drives this limited edition pocket watch that interests me. Thank you for your reply.

Quote from: bumo79 on August 05, 2023, 01:54:44 PMAmong Zodiac pocket watches there is a very rare limited edition model with a beautiful engraving depicting a scene from a horse-drawn carriage race, produced on behalf of a French organizer.
It was a 100 Zodiac watch Anniversary limited edition, issued 19 Jul 1982 on Yverdon-les-Bains where Zodiac watches was a sponsor. Watch named Rand Prix as stated on the dial. Only 500 were issued. Movement - ETA 6497.

That says Automatic, spleaking of the movement. Zodiac did some quirky thing in the 60s and got even funkier in the 70's. I have seen that model many times over the years, it is an original Zodiac model.

Quote from: Butch on August 07, 2023, 06:34:50 AMNo, that is a early to mid-60's dress watch. No idea what box it came in though.

Thanks!  So, an " Aotomatic " may have come in a " Rotographic " box originaly?

Another thing that got my attention is the 2 that looks like a Z and the 8 looks like an X. aAny knowledge on that?

Of course, I will add photos as soon as the project is ready.
Browsing the internet today I came across an interesting piece of material regarding FFBA from which it appears that 43 is rather not the production date but the case manufacturer's designation = Jean Paratte Sarl. In the link below is the entire list of manufacturers affiliated with the FFBA. Greetings !
