This is the first time that I had a Helicon on the bench. It’s a Helicon Digital jump hour with a Förster 201 movement under the hood. These funky jump hour watches are typical of the 1970s.
The case is in a bad condition. The base metal is visible underneath the chrome as you can see. The only solution would be to get it re-chromed. The crystal was scratched and needed to be polished.
The watch was running slow and it had an amplitude of <200 so it needed a service.
