It's driving me crazy, in this context what does "silgar" mean?
Thanks for your contribution.
I asked the seller to know someting more about the «Silgar/Serkisof».
«Finally another Swiss Silgar with a Portuguese day/date (I think), which perhaps strengthens the possibility that Silgar was a retailer/importer based in Portugal»....i think so, and perhaps he selt both Russian and swiss watches ( mechanism) with te brand «Silgar».
Schnurrp - A possibility is SILVA, GOMES E ABREU, LDA, a Portuguese company apparently formed in 1968 and now insolvent which traded under the name of Silgar. At one time they seem to have imported agricultural machinery, but perhaps they also had a line in watches? Best I can come up with!
Then I found this:
"Silgar is the name with which it is known the main beach of Sangenjo (Galician municipality on the banks of the Ría de Pontevedra, in Spain). The beach measures more than 800 meters and is accompanied end to end by the walk that takes its name. It is the most representative beach of the municipality as it runs past the buildings of one of the main streets of the town.
On its left end is La Punta del Vicaño, which is a protruding rock formation that separates this beach from Baltar beach in the town of Portonovo but belonging to the same town hall....."
Maybe this rock formation is what the logo represents. I was not able to find an image that would warrant that logo, however.
This fun Amphibia.
Seller pics look good.
