Favre-Leuba caliber 253 is a vintage handwound no-date watch movement. This caliber has 17 jewels and a frequency of 18,000bph.

The notable feature of the 253 is its double mainspring barrels, which are fully jeweled. This helps with an increased performance thanks to balancing out the reduction in energy though the twin barrels.

Similar Calibers:

There are also the FL 251 and 254:

  • The 251 has a different bridge design than the 253.
  • The 254 has a date complication, where as the 253 is a true no-date.

Does the V175 movement lose accuracy when the chronograph is used for an hour daily?
