    Nimra: who knows some more

    After my father passed away, about 6 months ago, he left me a couple of watches.
    Two Omega's, an unknown quantity pocket watch and this intruiging little thing:

    Attachment 431110
    Attachment 431111
    Attachment 431112

    My main question to the community is whether anyone knwos anything about this brand.
    When taking the movement out of the case, it ticks. Not very enthousiastically, but nothing a service shouldn't be able to cure.

    It about square at 25 mm's. Naturally there's some wabi on the dial but it's still quite readable. The crystal has a single curve in it and is also quite good.

    This watch probably has little commercial value, but is quite priceless in my book.
    Therefore I'd like to find out as much as I can about it and it's maker.
    Any help is appreciated, comments on preservation also welcome ofcourse.

    Mikrolisk gives it as a brand of Armin Grossert:

    Mikrolisk - was Feines für die Tasche... - Das Informationsportal rund um die Taschenuhr!

    But it means nothing to me - perhaps someone else will know more.

    There is an advert for Armin Grossert in this pdf. http://doc.rero.ch/lm.php?url=1000,25,18,19120224.pdf on page 103.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.
