    C-style case, the hands and indexes - looks like 60ies. The deep blue colour of the dial is more something from the 70'ies.
    The brand "Bachschmid" was obviously registered in 1888 in Switzerland (Mikrolisk - was Feines für die Tasche... - Das Informationsportal rund um die Taschenuhr!) and seems to be one of the many small brands that did not survive the quartz crisis. Open it up for us, please - if You can't, ask someone! Could be ETA 2783 inside (saw one of these in ebay, search for closed auctions, too). Could be a chrome case. Let's say this much: Selling it will not make You rich. But it looks nice.

    Very Nice looking watch!!

    Cant add much more than o.v.e. But as the watch is marked 'Waterproof' and not water resistant.... I would guess at late 60s... If I remember correctly, rules had been brought in by the 70s to stop manufacturers putting waterproof on watches....

    Movement shots will be key to getting more info!
