    Dafnis de luxe?

    Hello! I don't really know if this is the right place to ask, but what the heck lets give it a try 🙂 so the backstory is that I was in a second hand store earlier today and was just looking around, that's when I found this watch, thought it looked cool for 50kr = 5€ it was a steal in my book, (at least because it looked so nice hehe. Well now I'm curious about the brand of the watch and so on, did some research but could not find anything about the watch, neither the brand. All I know is that it's Swiss made, "antimagnetic" and manual winding. I'm hoping someone out there knows anything about the watch and so on. Cheers //Martin

    Examples of this brand currently on eBay seem to be powered by Bettlach 8800 movement, hence the lack of jewel count on the dial. But for all that, it's a cheap and cheerful piece of authentic '70s style.

    Thank you! I knew from the beginning that it probably was a cheap watch hehe, but I do like the design + its swiss made :) I'm going to do some restoration on the watch, for example I just fixed the speed of the watch, when I bought it, the ticking was like 2 sec too fast, and I just ordered a new leather strap for it. Probably going to replace the glass also. I could post some before and after pictures if anyone is interested :)
