I looking at a NOS 1960s Fantome automatic watch with an ETA 2770 movement. It is mint being NOS and is selling for about 140 Euro. Does anyone have any information on Fantome? How were they regarded quality wise back in the day?

Thanks.

Some pictures would definitely help. And that includes the movement. I have never heard of Fantome. Mikrolisk lists a "Couronne Fantome" as being a subbrand of Rolex.

Thanks HR, I appreciate the info. The seller claims that it is an ETA 2770 movement. What is this movement rated like? Would a watch using this movement be considers good or average? Any info of the Swiss maker of Fantome?

Thanks,

SJ

(replying from phone so sorry for short hand!)

ETA made some of the best generic movements - it's no wonder that, out of all the ESA makers plus the rest, they survived practically alone. I'm afraid the seller is having you on, though - the ETA 2770 looks like this:

...and doesn't have the "covered balance wheel cock" of the ETA 2450 series.

Thank you Harmut. I see the difference alright. I will put his claim down to a genuine mistake and will go for it as it looks so clean. Thanks again! :)
