    Recycled brands / models - how many are there?

    While doing a search for my own company I got a little side tracked and filled in some time looking at watch brand and model names that have been recycled over the years.
    For example :
    UNICORN
    Rolex,
    A.Schild
    Fairfield Investments - Adina
    Consolidate Artists BV
    Joint Ford investments Hong Kong
    Unicorn Watch Company Hong Kong
    Henry Hughes NZ

    AMPHIBIAN

    Eska
    A. Schild
    Giriad-Perregaux
    Adina
    Rodania
    Francesco (V. Asian Trading Co Taiwnan)

    We could make a trivia out of this

    Posting pictures of random watches explains what you mean how exactly?

    I think he means that the model name "Amphibian" was used by many watch companies. So, which other model names have been used (or "recycled") by multiple watch companies?

    You mean recycled brands like Blancpain, Ball, Hamilton, Ingersoll, Waltham...?

    Recent addition to the list might be Anonimo. Change of ownership a couple of years back didn't just mean selling the stocks from one owner to another. Virtually everything about the old company, Anonimo Firenze died. If the new Anonimo ever sells another watch, It's going to be a recycled brand at least in my eyes.

    It's not. The two examples are "Unicorn" and "Amphibian"...

    The rest of the list presumably is the companies that have used those names.
