Today the postman brought this Lunesa, probably from the 1940's.
Rather - OK extremely - worn dial, but I like this style very much - and its working well.
I can't ID the movement (although it looks familiar) which has no markings under the balance. It is 10'''.
The brand is still active, and their website Montres Lunesa AG claims the company was started in 1777.
On the wrist:
The minute and hour hands match in style, but are different colours. Modded at some time I suppose.:-d
I love it when the postman brings watches!!! Not very often in my case but still much more exciting than bills!!!
Love the hands on this one, very nice! And as I always say; it's well deserved aging that some vintage watches get. She looks great, Congrats !!!!
Looks like an AS984 that I just took apart.

That'll be the one. Thank you kind sir!
Shame about the dial... but it has a great 'style'... the case also looks in quite nice shape... Which is a bonus!
No doubt at a bargain price to......
(I won that black faced borgel - I say won, more like paid a small fortune!)
Thanks Marc. No I paid a lot - £11 no less!
Looking forward to your next Borgel post.;-)
Super watch, with great style, love the hour hand especially. I don't mind the aged face at all, after all it is about 65 years old, and once again a brand I haven't seen before, well done.
Another great acquisition of yours Marrick!
Marrick, you are truely the last of the big spenders...... ;-)

Well I measured it - by eye with a ruler - at 22.5mm which is nearer 10'''. But I'm happy to accept that its 10.5''' - so 984.;-)
