    Zila

    So a friend of mine gave me a beautiful Zila watch, and I know nothing about them.
    The movement has Geneva Bars, but is without markings and have no idea what it could be.

    I will post some pics tomorrow but information would be appreciated.

    According to Microlisk.de Zila were based in La Heutte, Switzerland. I'm not sure that there is much more anyone can tell you without seeing the watch and mechanism (which I would expect to be a bought in one).

    Thanks I realise just want to take a decent picture and will do so tomorrow. Its rather sweet a movement and the watch too but as I said I know nothing. Plus the fact its unmarked and yet has a fancy finish is kind of interesting (it is Swiss as far as I know BUT I know little)


    Anyone know their founding? history? The only thing I can find is a brief mention of them and nothing else really.
