    My Grandfathers watch

    Hi, I am usually not a poster on forums (like to read though), but I have come for some aid from the more knowledgeable of you =)

    Going trough my grandfathers stash, I came across this watch. I have tried to find any information on the web about it, but have found only bits and hints. Some say its from the 60s, some says it cheap and others say its radioactive. But, I have yet to find any information regarding this model of the old Cyma-Line

    Are there anybody out there who holds information about it, or at least can point me in the right direction? Since its a heirloom, I am considering sendig it to a watch repairman to get it overhauled, though it keeps good time.

    Sorry about the picture, but I have not taken many pictures before.

    Welcome to the forum. I would say that the watch is not sixties but rather fifties or even forties, although information on the movement might help to confirm that. Radioactive? The hands certainly aren't any more but the dial may well be. In any case, it is of little concern unless you take the crystal off and breathe in any dust from the dial. Then, it could become a major concern.

    Maybe it is really from the 60s since I've never seen the "C" on the oldest dial.



    Anyway it is a very nice watch.

    Thank you for your time, all I know is that it was aquired in his youth, so that would be around the 50s I think.. (60s also quite possible)
    This was a very helpful bit of information.

    regards
