    34mm 1950s Mithras Hunter with a 25j Brac 118 auto (not recoded in R.R.’s archive), just one of various movements, both pallet- and pin-lever, found in Mithras watches.

    The brand is not exactly unknown but, rather surprisingly, there seems to be no record of who actually made them, despite the continuing mystery of its origins cropping up in discussions in several watch forums over the years.

    Two different styles of wordmark were used, one in cursive script and one in block letters like today’s effort. Some were branded as French-made and others, like mine, as Swiss - albeit with its rotor inscribed in French. Some show no country of origin at all and were probably made in France for the home market, perhaps suggesting that either there were two separate Mithras brands or that the original French company re-located over the border to Switzerland, changing the style of its wordmark at the same time.

    Still unfinished business, I’m afraid.

    Regards.

    Cool story, bro! Tell it again! Seriously, I always enjoy the horological history lessons you and others with more knowledge share with the rest of us.
