    Question 1970 MARS automatic watch

    In 1970, I was given a MARS automatic (self-winding) watch as a gift. I have not been able to find any information on this watch manufacturer either on Google, or asking watch experts. Is anyone out there familiar with this brand?

    There are quite a few listings for "Mars" in the mikrolisk database. Photos of the watch and movement might help narrow things down.

    It's a bit dark and out-of-focus, is there anything at the bottom of the dial? Swiss? Japan?

    I found it! Rodi & Wienenberger - Pforzheim, Deutschland.
    Apparently no longer in business.
