637: Gents Helvy N 21 Manual Wind, ca. 1960

Accessories: none
Case: 10m, Waterproof, Stainless Steel Back - gold plated, plastic crystal, steel screw back, D=33.5mm
Band: leather
Dial: Helvy N 21, Jeweld, Antimagnetic, Antichocax - silvered, raised digits and markers, luminous dots
Movement:Lorsa - Lorsa - calibre Lorsa 652, 17 jewels, pin-lever escapement, ratchet on dial side, crown mechanism with rocker bar, Lorsa shock protection (only axially efficient)
Condition: C3, B0, D0, M1, case degraded due to worn gold plating, but no corrosion and no scratches due to strong nickel layer, service recommended

"N 21, Jeweld, Antichocax" on the dial suggest a movement with 21 jewels and real shock protection. Actually there are only 17 jewels and only axially efficient shock devices. The meaning-free signature "10m" ond back and bezel makes believe in a reasonably strong gold plating. Actually it is rather thin. This are no real lies, since "N 21" can be regardes as model designation, and the "ax" after "Antichoc" even as hint to the only axial shock protection. All in all a pretty example for the practice in the low-price segment back then.
     But there are also positive points of view: 17 jewels are many for a pin lever, the case with the strong nickel layer is rather durable, and owners of contemporary Rolex watches can only dream of such a dial quality.
