Today it's a 1940s Onsa in a 32.5mm case. The magic of a new crystal happily allows me to both wear it and read the dial at the same time.
I have a notion that the movement may be a 17j Peseux 181A variant, which would certainly fit the period even if not entirely convincing me that I'm correct.

I have great faith in fools; self-confidence my friends call it.

For any inquiries regarding vintage Doxa watches, please read the highlighted text in my vintage Doxa thread. Sorry, but I will not respond to PMs on the matter.
For today, my 33mm Konak (er, nope), bought some years ago from a sad-looking itinerant trader who, along with his folding table of even sadder-looking cracked ceramics and broken electrical bits, had tiptoed into the unlit fringe of an East European Christmas Market. Amongst his random clutter was this single watch seemingly pleading to be rescued and to my shame I haggled down to single figures, which was still more than it was worth. Subsequently treating it to a COA, it has rewarded my misty-eyed sentimentality by running with a commendable degree of accuracy ever since.
With its BFG 34 movement and paper dial, this never had any pretensions of being anything other than a cheap watch, and whilst its origins are long lost, at least the watch itself lives on.
