    This little fellow needed a home (an excuse I have used often) so I picked it up for a decent price. It's an N1 (1971) with an 11UKACB automatic movement. It's all original - as can be seen by the period advertisement of this model - including the original strap. Unfortunately, the velvet and gold strip parts are crumbling in my hands so it'll need a new band.

    It takes a bit, but they are not very rare. One's been on eBay (ebay.de) for a long time but it doesn't sell as the price is too high for the watch (EUR 2590; article nr. 153355478184 if you want to see it). It also appears to had been relumed at some point in a very amateur way, so it really doesn't justify the price tag.

    If you're on the lookout, keep in mind that these were made in Switzerland for Junghans by Kelek if I am not mistaken. Hence, you can find almost identical watches also under the brands Mikado and Oriosa with a slightly different handset. There's also a version with a blue dial (afaik only made for Junghans) -- this version is quite rare, though, I haven't seen more than one for sale in a couple of years and a few on the German forums.

    'Valvoline' promotional watch with a Hamazawa movement. As far as I can tell, at this point in time, Hamazawa was a division of Seiko used in the making of promotional watches.

    Got this chunky bit of 70s Bulova funky-ness for $20. It has a 37mm stainless case, is marked N3, so it's from 1973 and has an 11ANAC automatic Swiss movement powering it. All it needed was a new band...which cost more than the watch did!

    I’ve exhumed this 1950s Sarcar for today, with its uncommon 17j FHF 55-4, its “watchmakers’ four” and the underside of its casing sporting much nibbling.

    Founded by Carlos Sarzano in 1948 with the Geneve model being registered in 1950, Sarcar seems to have been a niche maker with laudable ideals back in the day, the quality its chrome plating obviously not being one of them. Whilst the company still exists, their current offerings aren’t aimed at the likes of me, nor my budget.

    Regards.
