Otero 44

Description

The Otero 44 was in the 1950ies an often used 17j standard caliber from Germany.

On the dial side, a cheap rocker winding mechanism was used and the adjuster of the balance has no pointer, although its scale still exists.

Regularily serviced, this movement still runs fine today.
