    Lunesa

    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.

    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 !!!!

    Congrats Marrick,


    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!)

    Congrats again,

    Marc

    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!

    The exact movement will depend on size. That one came in two sizes: AS 984 family at 10.5''' and AS 1002 family at 11.5'''. Measure it out and let us know what you have.

    Re: Lunesa

    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.
