The Peseux caliber 320 was produced in Switzerland. This movement can be found with or without shock protection. Other variations also exist depending on when it was manufactured. Do not be surprised if you come across a configuration that is different from what is seen here. If you do, please send a photo to be added to this listing.

The movement pictured above is from a vintage Pontiac watch. According to this page, Pontiac watches were launched in Belgium in 1932:

Alain De Nys fell into the world of timepieces when he was young. This timekeeping enthusiast inherited a passion for watch-making from his mother, who in turn inherited it from her father. In 1932,the grand father of Alain De Nys, Ali Kinsbergen, launched the famous Pontiac brand in Belgium..

Would something like this be what a Unitas 6497 is based on?

I thought the Peseaux 320 cal had 21 jewels not 17 jewels , I have a Vintage Accurist Hexagon Watch it also has the Peseaux 320 Cal but it has 21 jewels. This watch is an early 1960’s watch.

You can get it in different configurations, I am currently working on a 21 jewel version of this movement, the 4 extra jewels are all cap jewels.

I bought a vintage Accurist Hexagonal Watch it has the Peseaux 320 movement and it’s the original movement that came with the watch when it left the Accurist Workshop in England but obviously with a Swiss movement. Ever since I purchased this vintage watch ( 6 months ago ) it hasn’t let me done , when I wind it I get 48hrs without the next wind if I forget to wind it but generally I wind my watches every day with 8 winds of the dial. No wonder this movement is still being used it’s excellent, Well Done Peseaux !!!!!!

I have a Vetta 18K gold cased watch with (I think) this movement.
As you can see it is the 17 jewel version branded for Vetta.
Does anyone have any further info on this watch?
