Steinhart Mach 1. ETA 2824-2 with a nested (Dubois Depraz 2020) DD2020 unit for timing.

Sadly - both Debaufre and its predecessor company Steinhart are no more. They had much better luck making the DD2020 work than Invicta ever did ...









MOP on 2 of th3 registers - screw down pushers make this a great water resistant sports watch.

at the time an economical alternative to the then scarce 7750 movement -

the only wear penalty was the case / bezel thickness as shown

servicing could be expensive as the DD2020 is attached to (in this case (an ETA 2824-2) an ETA movement ...
making extra time and work to take apart and reassemble the 2 parts of the unit.



Still a great watch - a 2007 purchase ...
