• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

Hi All,

Thought this was an interesting one to share. Recent, very cheap purchase. It is an ETA 1080 movement with dial labeled GFC Besancon. I know from internet that Besancon is a French watch making city/center. It needed a stem, crown and detente lever and is now running nicely. Nice heavy case too. I was surprised to find a stamp on the back of the dial - Cadra Lux-Besancon. Anyone see these brandings before - GFC, Cadra Lux?
