Looking for 6497 movement to learn

#1 Post by lc130 » Thu Oct 05, 2017 10:51 am

These only seem to be ordered from China. Don't want to wait the month for shipping. Does anyone know of a US seller?

Thanks

I would recommend pulling a Unitas 6497/8 from an older pocket watch to practice. You can find them very reasonably priced as they are in many watches you just have to look a bit. If you want a newer 6497 with eta-chron you will have to pay up I think they are around 300$ if you can find available.
