Here’s a movement of unknown origin. On the dial of the watch, named Emromatic, it was marked with 17 Jewels.
But as often, the inner parts look completly different: The watch contained that pin lever movement, without shock protection and with an interesting decoration. To say something good about it, it is a very rugged movement, and still runs very strong, despite the heavily bent(!) dial and lots of dust inside.
The biggest surprise was beyond the dial: There was a plate floating around, which contained two jewels and had no function at all! You can see the plate on the picture below, it normally resides on the movement plate on position “4”.
With that, it was easy to reach the magic number of seventeen jewels, but due to the performance of these watch, which was lower as expected, the customers were driven away fast.
