FE 233-66

Description

The FE 233-66 is directly related to the caliber 233-60.

The rest of the construction is identical; the 233-66 uses a ring balance, which is beared in two Incabloc shock protection systems (which is a bit unusual for french movements), beats with only 18000 A/h and regulates a traditional pallet anchor movement. Technically, this movement, which was produced in the seventies, seems quite outdated, but it was still popular nevertheless.

The “decoration” of the bridges is quite crude, a typical sign of the 70ies.
