Clyda Dive watch 1970

Compared to a Yema from the same era in photos below. The photos are not mine, I purloined them off the web.

The Clyda brand was based in Charquemont, in Haut-Doubs. It is equipped with the French Franche Ébauches FE 4611 movement, which, among other things, equipped the first Heuer Monnin 844 as well as the Yema Navygraf and Yema Superman 55.00.16 from the same period:

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
