Peseux 7040

Description

This skeleton movement was put into many better skeleton watches around 1990. It is a classic constructed, very flat handwind movement, which was produced until 1982. Its direct successors are still made, was ETA 7001.
This movement was transformed by machine into a skeleton movement. It slowly beats with 21600 A/h, and it only misses a screw balance to be absolutely perfect.
