Ladies handwind, by the style of the dial one of the last series in the end of 70ies.

Gold plated as I see. Untill you open it, I have no Idea what is it run by.

Cheers.

Darwil Digital direct read jump hour, PUW 1560D inside - automatic with 25 jewels, bit of step up than usual pin lever Baumgartner movements found in vintage jump hours.

Image

case is one of the usual MS Hydro Polyp cases that this manufacturer made for Stowa, Arctos, Meister Anker and few other german companies. Unfortunately, chromed and worn.

Image

unusual for this model and for Darwil - it is not swiss made but german made, just another one of the variety of Darwils I have come across.

I also have a Solar Digital model on rehaul but different than Celletronic mentioned before.

Solar Chronograph. Full stainless steel case and bracelet

Fully functional, with chrono and alarm function.

Module is some weird Korean made, with primary battery operated source. Solar panels on face just fill the condensator when on sun, otherwise it runs on battery.

My watchmaker knows how to handle these old modules.. luckily..

Hipster level - 1000 pro..
