    Very nice - congratulations.

    Yes. It is very well preserved. Nice find!

    I find non-name brand divers of this vintage are often pin lever movements.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I have seen this brand before, and I would wager it is not a pin lever - it's far too fine in the casing details for that.

    P.S. the photos in this thread are like quicksand....

    Sorry, my english is poor and i don´t understand what is a "pin lever movement".

    The brand was a very popular brand in Spain and Portugal in the 60-70´s, in a middle range level.

    Thanks in advance

    A pin lever was a very cheap style of movement that used steel pins rather than pallet jewels. Some had as few as 0 jewels, although 1 jewel was preferred as then they could claim the watch was 'jewelled'. Some pin lever movements could have 17 or more jewels, but they still were not quality movements.

    In my opinion I do NOT think your watch has such a cheap movement - as I said, the watch it too good quality and I have seen the brand before. It probably has a nice AS or ETA movement.

    Nice watch, enjoy it.
