Just got interested in vintage watches not too long ago through a forum on wetshaving, and have found the information here to be very helpful. I purchased my first wind-up vintage watch a week ago. It is a totally obscure brandname (so obscure I can't find information on it ANYWHERE), and I don't know anything about the movement because I haven't been to a watchmaker yet to have it cleaned.
It's a Sir Niles 17j wind up with date, and the face says it is from France. Anyone who might have any info at all about it, I'd love to hear it. I'm just using it as a practice watch as I've never owned a wind-up before, and I'm notoriously rough on watches. I've decided my next one will probably be an early 60's Omega or Tissot.
