It was more of a marketing gimmick due to more and more electric machines that appeared in everyday surrounding.watchaholic wrote:I will pose a question I have had for some time concerning these older pieces with "antimagnetic" script on the dial. In today's world that would be sure to mean silicon escapement parts. Is it safe to assume that a watch of this age would have a soft iron faraday cage incorporated into the case?Wolfman53 wrote: ↑Sun Aug 18, 2019 8:44 pmMy Father's Accurist which I inherited a few years ago. It has been left in a drawer for 25 years but I recently decided it was time to spend some money on it and get it repaired and restored. The crown is missing and the movement needs a lot of attention! The watch is of little monetary value but obviously has sentimental value. I have been told that it dates from the early 50's or possibly late 40's but shout up if anybody disagrees. I intend to put it on a Hirsch Regent when I get it back (assuming it is repairable)

That is a GREAT looking piece. May I ask the diameter? Really like the soldered lugs. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate a moment to get her up and running. We will be waiting for more pics.
It denoted mainspring made of non magnetic alloy. It was far from today's definition of antimagnetic watch..
Took this goldie for a ride..
