I wasn't sure where I should post this, so I decided to create a thread in German and vintage forums. Here's a link to the thread in German forums, if you want to check it out for some reason: https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=400902.
So, it's all about my automatic Eza watch I bought about five years ago. I fell in love with its design, and because it was inexpensive I pulled the trigger. I really like the dial with complementary colours: blue background with orange markers and hands. The shape and prosessing of the lugless case are nice as well.
The problem is that I've never heard anything about the brand. I think it's German because the watch was sold to me as German. I've seen some Ezas on Ebay and they are claimed to be German as well. I was told that the watch was made in the 60's, but considering the style it could just as well be from the 70's, if I'm not badly mistaken.
Has someone heard anything about this brand or its history? I'd really like to know something about it. Thanks already in advance!
Here are some pictures of the watch:
Eza Automatic, 25 jewels, shockproof. Case is 36 mm wide (without the crown), 41 mm tall and 12 mm thick. Strap width is 18 mm. The original blue strap was very fragile and stiff and it got broken very soon. I replaced it with a blue Hirsch Windsor strap.
Here you can see the polished side of the case and the crystal without a bezel.
Here's a close shot of the dial.
"Stainless steel back - antimagnetic - waterproof" is written on the back of the watch.
25 jewels, Ultramatic. Does anyone know something about this movement?
And finally a shot of the watch on my 18 cm (7.1 inch) wrist.
