    Eldor Admiral Automatic

    I got this watch for around 11 dollars on an Ebay bid. I never even heard of Eldor and it was just a blind bid really and I cant believe the quality of this watch. A lot of quality time pieces can be had if you dont insist on one of the expensive brand names. I know its just a plated case and has some wear but on wrist it looks like a million bucks. 34mm wide including crown and wears bigger because of case style IMO.

    Couldn't agree more. Good catch, and with what looks like a nice enough Felsa 1560 inside it. Several possible makers in Mikrolisk, of which Eldor Watch Co/Bill & Co/Montre Ellis would appear to be the most likely.

    Regards.

    I have seen a lot of watches out there that look pretty nice without the big high dollar name on them. There was a lot of competition with the swiss made watches in the 50's and so on thru the 70's, and I think there are still a lot of nice little gems out there. Nice pickup!
