    I've not heard of this one, but I like the classic styling!

    Agree with DragonDan, remarkable condition too.

    Speaking of Manis I immediately thought of this:

    sjb,

    I certainly hope you mean 20 microns of plating, not 20 metres; that would make a watch more than 40 metres thick

    You ought to try this Manis sauce, it's good stuff

    That's a very nice looking watch

    It looks late 50's/early 60's to me...........what's the mov't??

    I have seen that brand name before, but know nothing of them. Probably one of the many that either got swallowed up by a bigger player or went down in the quartz 'revolution' ?!!
