    Hello,

    Does anybody have informations about 1960 calibers stopwatches (by example on this 1/100 mn stopwatch).
    Is it an heuer movement or a valjoux (or another compagny movement used by heuer in their stopwatches)

    Best regards

    Can't tell on that one (I'm not well versed in Stopwatch movements), but yes, Valjoux were the main supplier of movements

    From a bit of digging I believe it may be the Heuer Calibre 1666, which is then an A.Schild movement originally.

    You can see a picture of the movement in this linked PDF: https://www.cousinsuk.com/PDF/categories/3220_Heuer 736,1564,1666 Page 1.pdf

    The Valjoux movements seem to have been introduced in the late 60’s, whether this was for all models or not I am not sure, but certainly for the Monte Carlo and I assume any other 1/100 stopwatches. A quick google of Heuer Monte Carlo and you should find the same movement as yours.
