ETA 761


The ETA 761 is a typical, nominal 5 1/4 ligne, ladies' watch movement of the, probably late, fourties.

As all movements of that type, it uses the same construction with the movment bridge, housing the four gears. Here, it is nicely finished with angled edges and pretended chatons. The screw balance is unfortunately not shock protected.

On the dial side, there’s the familiar yoke winding system.

The only speciality of this movement is, that the escapement pallets are transparent.
