    Alsta pocket watch

    I helped a friend pick up this Alsta pocket watch from ebay for $16.95. Can anyone tell me anything about these. What can I expect for time keeping. Sorry this is the only photo I took. So far it is keeping pretty good time.

    Don't know anything about the brand, but the movement is the very common workhorse Unitas 6498 currently made by the ETA division of Swatch. A cleaned and lubricated 6498 that is well regulated should give you at the worst plus/minus 15 sec per day.

    Alsta was a brand of the Alstater Watch Company Inc. So a US importer of Swiss movements.

    There's been one or two of their wristwatches posted in here if you use the search function - but little real info about the company.
