    almost clear ;) but the crown.. described as fully working - so 10 euro was not the sin.

    Crown was right and in my hands landed Indus Compressor on Eta 2408, s.steel, with some glass and case refreshing needed.

    10-65 on the back suggest September 1965. I'm not a big fun of this stretch bracelets, so I will look for something more Nato/diver style.
    This time it worked out but one is for sure - Pictures are crucial.

    Cheers,
    aRm

    Thank You!
    Glad You like it! I am always looking for cheapest but not the "cheap" ones.
    As I said I done - Nato with gray.

    Hi F11'ers!
    Indus is back and wasn't forgotten for a long - after manual compressor from the 65' I want to share with You another one, bit younger Indus De Luxe 25 jewels Automatic. I bought him on Flea Markt, form the great seller of antiques and jewelry. Guy who claimed to be the first Owner - Was so happy with my passion to watches that propose him directly form his hand :) (I will not investigate the story - I respect and trust Elderly People and I feel Honored)

    About the bottom - It is one of those affordable adverts - below 1 euro but it's nice.

    Interesting place in Rotterdam - Groothandelsgebouw - "(meaning Wholesale Building or Offices) is an extensive building and monument in the center of Rotterdam, Netherlands next to the Central Station of the city. Completed in 1953 it is one of the first major buildings built after the bombing of Rotterdam in the Second World War."
