    The dial and bulging back indicate a 60s early automatic. It was a good watch in its day. Small brands like this are often just as good as some of the major known brands with similar casing, dial, and movement technologies. But they were never supported with the marketing alure and history so their market value is surprisingly low considering what you get. It is well worth preserving with a good service.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    The red date ring is quite characteristic of - although not exclusive to - Adolf Schild movements at that time.
