    Any thoughts on those "Editia-s"?

    Got those two(actually three,but can't find third one) watches with brand name "Editia" on dials,and it's hard to find any info about those.
    Wrist watch is 37. mm. wide,and has fixed lugs.

    Any help is welcomed.

    Thanks in advance!

    It looks like they are from the 1940s but I can't see any markings for the maker under the balance. Others may know more.

    My watcmaker says that they both have markings "UT" under the balance,so I guess those are "Unitas" movements.

    Unitas didn't make a 28mm movement prior to 1961 (I didn't check after 1961)

    They made several 13''' (28.9mm) movements which is what I'll assume you have, The Unitas 13''' movements include the 144, 146, 147, 173, 174, 176, 177, 178, 179, 206, 228, 500, 640, 650, 6300, 6305, 6310, 6311, 6312, 6320, 6410, 6411, and 6412.

    They also made several 17''' (38mm) movements which include the 11, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 111, 143, 144, 211, 226, 285, 286, 287, 293, 305, 307, 311, 327, 343, 345, 411, 417, 493, 497, 498, and 499

    It seems they made the 144 in both sizes.

    Now you can go hunt for movement photos to compare against.
