    22 jewel REGIS

    I would love to know something about this old 22 jewel REGIS if anyone out there knows. I think it may just be one of the hundreds of generic Swiss made watches that came onto the market back in the middle 1900's. What intrigues me is that the inner workings appear to be gold, although I doubt seriously that is the case! Thanks for looking!Name:  P1010033.JPG

    Hi there,

    the movement is gold plated, no solid gold. It was introduced in 1968 as MSR T54

    And it is still pruced today as Revue GT54:

    Here is what Mikrolisk says of the Regis name.

    Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index

    Looks to be part of Ditisheim/Vulcain.

    The logo on the rotor also adds to the accuracy of the above relationship.

    The Revue Thommen/Vulcain/Buser MSR logo dates to a 1961 registry, so your watch probably dates to around that time.

    Cheers, Bob.
