Many members know/like Titoni now. But few know Felca is the foundation stone of Titoni. See TITONI history in its official homepage:
http://www.titoni.com/index.php?id=47

Founded in 1919 in Switzerland, Felca was a reputable and popular brand in Europe.
It disappeared around late 1970s, I guess. This manufacturer focused on TITONI since then. This model is one of the last batches produced under the name FELCA.

In line with the superb design and quality of Felca and Titoin, (to my old customers) this watch has superb design, movement, material, finishing and detailing.

3 exceptional features:

The Case:
Superb design, casting, cutting and polishing. In this case, you can see all kinds of finishing (brushed, sandblast and mirror). You can notice the cutting and polishing of both sides. Several dimensions on each. Each dimension with its own type of surface finishing.
Built-in crown guard with case body.
10 micron gold-plating stamped on the case (PLAQUE G 10).

Bracelet:
Solid link. Stainless Steel with gold-plating on top surface side only to avoid allergy to skin. Very thoughtful design executed with superb gold-plating and sandblast and brushed finishing.

Movement:
Wow! Sorry, lighting is too dim, you cannot really sense the beauty of such a whirl polishing of this movement from photos.
A mint glittering ETA 2826. See this excellent watch movement database for details and photo of ETA 2826. Search “ETA 2826” in this website:

ETA 2826 was produced in a few thousands only from 1971 – 1977. This fits this NOS production date and the last years of Felca’s history exactly! ETA 2826 was used for COSC chronometer by Ulysse Nardin in 1975.
We only see such swirl polishing in high grade movements from these most famous Swiss brands nowadays. Never see it in ETA 2824 or 2836.
In a nutshell, a highly collectible movement caliber.

A glittering, vintage and genuine ETA 2826 in this NOS Felca. Unmistakable swirl polishing on both rotor and the main plate for ETA 2826 made in 1970s.
Different from ETA 2892 but equally appealing. Far better than ETA 2824 or 2836. Better than its new version: the re-issued ETA 2826-2 from 2004. See the difference:
