ETA's first automatic movement...

Post by andrema on Tue 27 Sep 2011, 4:57 pm

Here is some information on ETA's first automatic movement -- the ETA 1256. The movement, which debuted 1950, was the first selfwinding movement of the Grenchen manufactury. It already used a very modern selfwinding mechanism, which winds the movement in both directions.


The ETA 1256 is the prime father of all ETA selfwinding movements ever made.


Here is some data Ranftt.de as well as a few youtube videos:
