Front page Monday July 21st 1969.
Great drawing of the General Watch Co (Helvetia) "Floating movement"!
Here is a pic of the movement in one of my watches showing the underside of the spring loaded screws and the notches in the rim for fitting it.

Some of mine.
Close but not quite.
Some great artwork!
Hanging in my hallway.
