    My new piece - Medana

    So, I bought this for (I think) a fair price.

    I know it's not high quality or especially rare, but I like the face.
    Anyone able to give me any further info?
    Thanks

    Hi Ric,

    I think that is a very nice Medana that you have there. In some ways I'd view it as perhaps one of the nicest that they ever produced. Medana was the budget brand of Meyer & Studeli SA but and it's a big but, when they finally dropped the cylinder escapement at the end of the Thirties, they replaced it with a very nice range of pin levers.

    I happen to think that that dial is one of the best that M&ST ever made and is as far as I can see the same as they were fitting to their Roamer brand, which was the better brand. As far as the calibre is concerned, it's a low jewel count but the watch doesn't appear to have a lot of wear so chances are it is still good.

    In terms of age, I think that trim might be able to pin it down a bit tighter as the calibre is marked Meda (another M&ST brand), but I'd go early to mid Forties.

    Overall, very nice, I like it When I get round to adding some pin levers into my collection, I'd very much like to add something like that.
