Ever heard of Romaric Andre, seconde/seconde/ or Jacques Cousteau? Neither have we, but out of the snowy Finnish skies this dropped in front of us. We were long wondering the slowly turning red beanie. What is it for, why does it look so good. After a thorough check it came to our understanding that this beanie revolves amazingly accurately a full 360 within a minute, and the device actually keeps time very well. According the strongly patinated dial this watch may well have been living its early life in the depths and close to sea back in the 1960's when it was manufactured. Yet, the movement protected by the steel case looks nearly untouched.
