    A nice Swiss winder from the '50s. Good condition! Sometimes these unbranded watches pop up. They are pretty generic and further tracing of the maker is difficult if not impossible.

    "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!

    The movement is something from the Felsa 335 family with indirect central seconds adaptation. I would have expected a name on the dial, though, since they took the trouble to put "Incabloc", etc. on it.....

    Given the location of the word "Incabloc" on both the dial and caseback, I'm wondering if that IS the "brand name"; how conceivable is it that the makers of incabloc decided to sell a line of watches to highlight their technology?

    Do you think that the designers were afraid that this escape wheel had so much torque that it might rip off its bridge? Have you found your missing case screw yet? Why didn't Portescape use its own name instead of its trademark? Maybe someone attempted to clean the dial. Inquiring minds want to know.
