I was given this watch recently by someone who found it in a lot of scrap jewelry. Much to my surprise not only does it run, but it keeps excellent time (less than a minute fast in 24 hours...hard to be precise as the movement isn't a hacking one), the chronograph starts and stops perfectly and the reset is immediate and perfectly aligned. There is some wear commensurate with age; I'm guessing this is from the 60s maybe?
I'm unable to find anything out on the web regarding the history of this piece. There's an older thread on this board that references a similar watch but there are no clear answers there that I found either. eBay has an older listing that appears not to have sold so I'm also struggling to assign any sort of value to it.
I think it's cool and probably won't sell it. It's large enough that it wears well and doesn't look out of place on the wrist. Not sure what strap I'll put on it but I'll find something.
Anyone know anything about these? (the case back pic I liberated from online but it looks the same)
