DKF ZS 98 VS DKF-S 98
DoKo Feinmechanik also produces a caliber DKF-S 98 which is basically an ETA 6498-1 clone with the small seconds subdial at 6:00. The DKF ZS 98 starts out as a DKF-S 98 but includes a conversion module for central seconds instead of the small seconds.
In DKF’s Own Words:
“Our DKF ZS 98 movement. This movement is available with different modifications like engravings, swan neck Regulation, grinded ratchet wheels.“
DoKo Feinmechanik can make custom movements with order minimums as low as 25 units. The lead time can be as short as 2 months, with prices starting from 400 Euros each, depending on customization of course.
