    This is not the 'dream-version' of this watch, which is the one with the divided (differently colored) dial and the fork and the diamond at the 9 o'clock position, but in extremely good condition. Furthermore, what's always a problem when I am looking for a vintage watch which needs the original wristband band – this one is long enough.

    Anyone with the diamond version around?
    Do you mean this one?

    Re: Vintage WRUW January 2018

    For today, a 1950s 32mm Audax powered by a 17j ETA 1080.

    Straight off the bat, I assumed this to be another dead-end trail until to my relief (and no little gratitude) I discovered that the heavy lifting had already been done by a collector with a similar interest in largely forgotten brands and prepared to spend the time and effort to enlighten those wishing to learn more.


    In the case of Audax, he found, amongst many other nuggets, that the brand apparently operated from the 1930s until the 1960s, had no Chronos or Divers and seemed to be linked to Fortis for at least part of their existence. The fruits of his labours can be seen here: Audax Watches: Hunting Down the History - Honour's Topics - The Watch Forum and I would heartily commend it to all with an interest in the less well-travelled paths of our hobby.

    Regards.
