Hello fellow members!
I recently won this "Mirona" wristwatch in an online auction and I'm looking for some more information about it. There is basically no information regarding the brand on the internet, one exception is a thread here on the forums: Any info please.
Here are some pictures I took of the watch. I don't have a very good camera but I hope they will suffice:
Looks good doesn't it?
Here is a picture of the backside courtesy of the previous owner:
I brought the watch to a local watchmaker who told me that the movement was in decent condition. I also managed to take a quick picture of the movement with my friend's iPhone:
I apologize in advance for the horrendous quality of the picture above. I sadly don't own any equipment to open watches and I don't dare opening it with what I can find lying around the house, so I can't provide a picture of better picture of the movement yet. It does look like an ETA movement though doesn't it? I tried having a look on Ranfft.de but I couldn't find the exact one. The watchmaker also believed it to be an ETA movement but he wasn't sure about the specific model. Sadly I didn't get a good look at the movement in the store as there were a lot of others there and the watchmaker was quite stressed.
The previous owner wasn't much help either, she basically didn't know anything about the watch!
To summarize: Does anyone know anything more about the brand? When was the watch made? Mid-sixties perhaps? Was it an expensive watch at the time? What movement does it use? Do you recon it'll be easy finding spares for the watch/movement? I like the watch and I'm hoping to be able to wear it for quite some time! :)
If anyone is interested I paid around 16$ for it, which seems like a good deal so far as it seems to be keeping time quite well!
Many thanks in advance for any help!
