Size:  4.46 MBI recently bought this watch used for not much money at all. It came with one part of a leather band that was in poor condition, so I put a nylon strap on it. I'm new to watch collecting and I figured it would be nice to wear at an upcoming wedding. However, I'd like to see if anyone can tell me anything about the watch brand "Vitessa", because all of my Google searches yield only results about Voigtlander Vitessa cameras. I have neither the tools nor experience/skill to open the case and view the movement, either. Any and all information on this watch would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to Watchuseek! That looks like a nice, early sixties watch. If you are going to wear it regularly, it will need to be serviced first, otherwise you risk damage and the thing won't run very accurately anyway. While the watchmaker is at it (and by the way: please don't approach a jeweller instead of a watchmaker - the former will only pass it on and charge you extra or botch up the watch!), one can take pictures of the movement, that might help us identify the maker. Vitessa isn't listed in our standard watchmakers reference list (Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index) so it may be a private label watch made as an advertising item for a non-watch related company.
