Response to Unitas (eta) 6497 17 jewel? Do you have a caseback view? And one more question, what

With 18 jewels (one added for the central seconds complication), rhodium plating, Côtes de Genève, perlage in various areas, snailing on ratchet and crown wheels, Glucydur balance with screws, Nivarox 1 hairspring, swan's neck regulator, central seconds complication, and stop seconds as mentioned previously.

Case is brushed stainless, sapphire crystals front and back, AR coating front and back (both sides on front crystal), flieger crown, and case is 42 mm not including the crown. 50 meters water resistance rating (although I test them to -4 Bar and +6 Bar).

I don't have a case back shot handy, but here are two shots showing the front and back of the movement - I can take a case back shot for you if you want.

Limited to 20 pieces BTW....available on strap or on bracelet at an additional charge:

Here is a video of the stop seconds function:

When you pull the crown out, it does not hack immediately, as the seconds hand continues to run until it reaches 12 o'clock, then it stops. From there you adjust to the minute, and click the crown back in place, and you are synchronized.

Any other questions, please let me know.

Cheers, Al
