    Laughing Bought first vintage Cyma need help dating etc please

    Hey all im new here long time reader first time poster :D anyway i Just bought this CYMA on ebay the other day, the seller is claiming its from the 40's which i guess looks about right and i'm hoping it is. Does anybody have any insight as to what decade this is from and whether is a manual wind like i think it is or an auto? the ebay description was pretty unhelpful. (BTW these are the ebay shots, i havent received it yet) any help would be amazeballs thanks guys and gals

    Probably '40s; early '50s at the latest.

    Almost certainly manual-wind.

    Doubtful that the second hand is original.

    Looks 1940s to me. Given that there are no records of Cyma serial numbers (burned down in a fire) a very general estimation of the date is as good as it gets.
    Second hand may be genuine, it has the correct length, but it is bent in a few places, and has been really badly repainted.
