Femga 45


Tonneau-shaped, 5 1/2 ligne movements for ladies' watches were ubiqutous in the 1960s and 1970s. The Femga 45, which is such a kind of movement, however, is a bit rare in Germany, since it was made in France.

The quality of this movement is very well, and because of two ruby bearings for the minute wheel, no cap jewels were required to reach the “magical” number of seventeen jewels.

As common for this kind of movement, a classical, two-storey gear train is used with directly driven center minute wheel, third wheel and seconds wheel above the steel escape wheel.

The golden-tones, two leg anular balance beats slowly with 18000 A/h and regulates a swiss pallet lever movement. It is shock-protected by two Incabloc bearings.

Of course, the Femga 45 uses a yoke winding system, which you can see at position 3 o’clock.
