The Lorsa 8FB is an only in details modified successor of the caliber Lorsa 8FA, so it’s a rather large form movement for ladies’ watches, which beats with 21600 A/h.
It probably dates from the late 1970ies or early 1980ies.
The only difference to the Lorsa 8FA. On the caliber 8FB, there’s an additional surrounding around the holes. Everything else remains the same.
