I am a "bit of a watch guy", have a IWC Portuguese for a daily and a Suunto Core Stainless Steel for a weekend/adventure watch. However, my real love is Vintage Rotary Mazda cars so finding this has really made my year. I've researched as much as I can on the net and know the movement is a Baumgartner 158 which was fairly common in Sicura and Sicura "brand" watches in the mid 70's. This also ties in with the Mazda logo which was used from 1968-77" This isn't working but I've found a working donor on ebay which is on the way.
So, I have a few questions.
1) Is this a Sicura branded watch or something else? How do you tell?
2) Whats up with the strap pins? Has anyone seen this style before? One is certainly homemade after its been lost the other "looks" fairly original. A straight pin wouldn't fit and a curved pin would need a fairly decent bend to fit. Gap is 27mm
3) What sort of strap would this of originally had?
Happy to know any other info or facts.
