Hello everyone. This is my first post in the forum after being a simple visitor for a couple months. I'm here in the Vintage theme to ask this forum for some help.
Out of the blue, past Friday, I found two mechanical watches back at home. A Zenith in very poor state from the 40's and one watch from a brand named Oriental which looked to be averagely good state. It's an automatic with seconds sub-dial where numbers are beautiful. The dial shows just a small patina, it may have spent most of its life inside a drawer. If I'm not wrong, the Incablocs started be used in the 70's so this is my only time reference. Not knowing anything about Oriental (note that it's not Orient), I tried to search more about the brand but I found close to nothing.
Here's the watch below with a brand new strap.
The reason why I'm asking for help is to get to know something about the brand because the internet doesn't seem to help me. I even asked sellers who have Oriental watches for some background but they also don't know a thing about it.
On Chrono24 there's just two different results:
- A Diver's
- A Chronograph
I read somewhere (though I can't pinpoint it right now) that the brand was somehow related with Wittnauer-Longines but not sure if I can believe that.
Has anyone here came across an Oriental watch before?
