Vintage Watch Forumers,
Deciding to forgo costly repairs of an Unitas project watch, I purchased a nice condition vintage Nivada Compensamatic wristwatch from eBay today. I tried looking for info on Nivada on WUS, but nothing too definitive. Does anybody know much about the Nivada brand, other than that it's Swiss and from the mid-20th century? The number on the caseback is 36047, and the movement is a standard A. Schild 1802 with 17 jewels. The seller provided some more excellent quality photos with the auction, which can be found at this link: Index of /watches/nivada
The final price was £51 (about USD 81).
The seller (welputin1981) is also Finnish, so I don't know if that has anything to do with the quality of his/her eBaying, but the meticulous photographs of the items are impressive. I'll see if the watch arrives without a hitch.
