    Sicura was around making watches in the 60s and 70s, but they disappeared sometime during the quartz revolution. Their vintage divers pop up occasionally. From what little I could find, the brand name was recently purchased to be used on inexpensive Asian watches. These are the specs for this one:

    • Japan 21 Jewels Self Winding Automatic Movement by Myota
    • Stainless Steel Case and Band with Push Button Deployment Clasp with Safety Lock Feature
    • Mineral Crystal, Date Display, Luminous Hands and Markers, Uni-Directional Turning Bezel
    • Screwed Down Caseback and Crown
    • Water Resistant - 300M, Case Size: 43mm Diameter excluding Crown, 13mm Thickness
    Nothing special IMHO, and for that price I'd go with a Seiko/Citizen/Orient.
    Regards,

    Gabe

    Hi...Don't know if this information will help, but the last time I saw a Sicura was in Venice, Italy, about 40 years ago!!!. I was in the Navy and on liberty ashore. I was so impressed with the style (three windows, one for hour, one for minute, one for date, automatic wind), and a price that was fantastic, so I bought it. It only lasted about three months before needing repair. Brought it to a watch maker, he explained the movement was cheaper than cheap ( a "pin and rocker" or something or other), and basically not worth even attempting to repair. As I say, this was 40 years ago, so maybe the brand has come up. I friend of my knew the brand and said it is comparable to a Bulova Caravelle quality wise. Hope this helps.

    Sicura was a one time Swiss brand that fell as Gabe said due to the quartz revolution and has recently arisen due to a Cantonese businessman buying up many of the old Swiss brand names and producing watches using the names....the watch you have pictured is new and relativley inexpensive(under $150.) and is Asian in origin....many can be found at different vendors on the web and it also comes in a PVD version...hope this helps
