    Fingerhut made watches?

    I found this in a box of junk watches. Nothing any good. This one did surprise me though when I took the case back off. Thought it was kind of funny really.

    Well, the movement looks like a Brac 39 with a cap jewel, but who assembled it for Fingerhut is anyone's guess. If it runs well enough, you've won a watch (as they say!).

    Regards.

    It was just one of a few junk watches I had in a drawer. It does run. Lol The others were just a couple corroded cheap quartz models. They hit the trash can. Lol

    Thanks for the info balaton. I'm sure the cap jewel is going to make this movement a few years newer.

    Yup, bang up to date and using the very latest cutting-edge technology. Far too good for the trash can :)

    I have one of those. Works well and keeps pretty good time.

    I know it's nothing special, but I have a soft spot for watches from the era when everyone and their grandmother was casing movements bought by the gross.
