Default If your interested in how they were made.

From a book called "Flexible Automation in Japan" By J Hartley (nothing in it about Fly fishing)
pages 123 to 126

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=...20LINE&f=false

Also from a book "Information control problems in manufacturing technology 1979"
Pages 58,59, & some illustrations on 66
https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=...20LINE&f=false

System A was built in the Daini factory around 1972, probably churning out the 70xx series movements, interesting to note that it was later moved to a subsidiary factory. Singapore or Morioka perhaps?
