    All I can state is that "Wingo" was a brand of Sacom SA in Biel. The way that looks, it should be from the late sixties or the seventies and have an ETA or Adolf Schild movement inside. It looks somewhat like a Rado from the same period.....

    Is that a '5' next to day window? Does it show that Friday is the 5th day of the week?

    Outside the US, the weekend is actually the end of the week... the last two days of the week are Saturday and Sunday. Strange isn't it?? LOL

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
