    Help identifying a Nitella watch

    Hi all,

    My son was given an old (well looks old) Nitella watch.

    I have been trying to work out what age it is and model etc but information on Nitella is pretty limited to a brief wiki it seems. It has Automatic incabloc 25 on the face and a date at 3 oclock.

    Any help identifying or further information about this watch would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi and welcome.

    Not a brand I know. I presume that the wiki is this one - http://watch-wiki.org/index.php?title=Nitella_Watch_Co. Auto-translated as:

    Nitella Watch Co.

    Swiss watchmaking

    The Nitella Watch Co. was founded after the Second World War by the family Loosli in Tramelan. The company supplied watches under its own name and had also worked as an assembler for several other brands. In addition to mechanical watches, quartz watches were mounted. In 1989, the company Nitella Watch Co. Auguste Reymond SA in Tramelan led by Norbert and Thomas Loosli.

    The Nitella watch factory also supplied watches to the ZentRa Association.

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

    It must be powered either by an AS or an ETA 27xx. The best way to know is to open the caseback and see what is inside.

    Auguste Reymond SA still exist - they used to go under the brand name ARSA. At one time (in the thirties), they had close ties with the movement maker Unitas.
