    Re: Vintage Nivada Ladies watch

    Welcome to watchuseek and thanks for including good photos with your question.

    Nivada was one of many Swiss companies that made watches throughout the 20th century. This particular model has an unsigned generic Swiss movement (AS 1240 or variant: bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: AS 1240) and a plated case (i.e. not solid metal), so I would characterize it as an entry-level watch. Obviously the case (including the lug holes) has some condition issues, which would not be worth repairing.

    To my eyes, this style of watch could have been produced throughout the 1950s or early 1960s and I couldn't narrow it down further. Perhaps someone else will have a better idea of how to provide a more precise production date.

    That is most likely a way to change the date. Have you tried pressing it?

    Well, that presumably makes this watch a little more special - and perhaps a little more worth saving. The base movement didn't have any datequickset feature so it was presumably made exclusively for - or even designed by - Nivada. It looks as if a good service would do wonders for this watch.
