    Looks to be early 1960's, shame you can't get the back off as that will tell the whole story. Anything on the case back itself?

    I could be mistaken but on my phone I think I see some moisture under the crystal, especially near the date aperture. You didn't show the back so I'm unclear on how this opens but I am curious to see the movement. I was unaware Felca ever made such a watch. Let us know what you find out.-Cort

    The Felca Chronometer appears be the same model that was given to me to me 50 years ago by my father's to celebrate my 21 Birthday , Coming of Age. Sadly, it wad stolen in a burglary at my present home in London, England about 18 years ago, and never seen again. I am naturally intrigued to see the image of it in the e thread posted over a yeat ago. I should like to know if NAWC members msafe any follow up comments,and if this model is still in s collection since, for obvious reasons of great sentimentality I should like to obtain a replacement watch. My original watch wad purchased locally in London.
    I have only just joined NAWC. Thanks to Members in anticipation.of their kind assistance.
