    I thought that it was solved long ago being the abbreviation of Henrique Pfeffer Caracas...

    that was my theory, but I'm not sure it's correct for many reasons already discussed.

    Wait I thought it meant "High Performance Chronometer", is that debunked because of lack of numbered movement?

    I think the (more or less) general feeling is: debunked by lack of any concrete support but not for lack of numbered movement. I have a list of 1100+ movement numbers but only a handful are HPC :whistling:

    there's two threads on this topic here on OF, if you want to get all the details, but yes it was debunked for all kinds of reasons

    Hey, haha as @LesXL already said, that is the reference: Ferrovie dello Stato “FS” mk1. It is 34mm. The mk2 is 36mm. Both the mk1 & mk2 have an enamel coated dial, whereas the mk3 (also 36mm) has a silver colored dial.

    You can learn more about them here:

    Just back from a preventative maintenance service, my early 50s 12445. This was my third UG. Fits beautifully under a shirt sleeve. A quintessential dress chronograph. 9E4CF9DE-1E52-4E99-9213-097D97907931.jpeg 3561DF17-B398-4752-85A7-8ED76AB2B314.jpeg D9197965-8975-442A-BFB8-0EC4C738A6EC.jpeg 0AC79870-89BE-4C90-8556-DB1A35156F1F.jpeg
