    Cyma Triplex cal. R.414 K8 early 40-ties?

    Here is an example of my Cyma with a different R.414 K8 movement than showed on the mr. Ranfft pages.
    I've found this watch in a lot that I've bought a few years ago and I was completely forgotten it.
    My watchmaker has serviced it and it runs like new again, imo it's a high quality movement only the case isn't.
    I hope that somebody can tell me more about it, age, etc.
    Unbelievable that there is so little on the net about one of the biggest European watch factories from the past as Cyma-Tavannes Co is

    Ok here are the pics (they are from before the service):





    Thanks for watching!

    Cheers, Frans

    Hi - very nice. I'd agree 1940's.

    it would seem that the brand has been resurrected:

    http://www.tavanneswatches.com/

    and they have put a reasonable amount of history on the site.

    also

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Hi Marrick, thanks for your quick reply, I've allready did a surch and have found the links you showed. That's why I found it so strange that there is so little if you compare it with, for example, Omega.

    cheers, Frans
