    Morning, From the recesses of the hat today, it’ll be this mid-70s Roamer Auto in a 9ct gold case. Runs on a 17j hacking MST 522, the final flourish of their in-house movements. Bought at auction and comprehensively ignoring my absolutely-not-to-be-exceeded limit but, hey, it does have a signed buckle and crown, so that was my conscience salved. Kind of. Regards.

    Morning. Drat -- missed "smile time" by five minutes. The Captain Moon Phase goes well with today's smart casual but I'll be rather more understated and upmarket on the 19th . . .

    Morning, 1950s Wittnauer with a gold-filled bezel, running on their 17j 10ESB movement (a modified ETA 1080) and came as a “present” from my watchmaker. Seemingly it had been handed in to him as a non-runner by a customer whose son didn’t want it either and so, after some magic resurrection work (i.e. a service), it now has a new home. As many will know, the New York-based company’s history goes back to the 19th century and had remained family-owned until 1936 after which it went through various owners. However, according to some sources, and despite the long distribution association, the Longines company was not one of them. Since 2001, the Wittnauer name appears to belong to Citizen by way of their Bulova brand and clearly the modern-day Wittnauer watches have nothing in common with the vintage company, other than the name. Regards.

    Morning, Today it’ll be the turn of this steel-cased Bravingtons Wetrista with a 17j ST 1686. Either supplied complete to the Bravingtons Jewellery Co. by an unknown maker, or assembled by Bravingtons themselves from bought-in parts, probably some time in the late 1950s. Regards.

    Morning, This Onsa Giloux from around 1970 wiith its 25j Felsa 4007N will get a turn today. The “Gil..” or “Gilo..” element may have been part of a mash-up with the name of the maker (Hans Gilomen) but that’s purely speculation on my part. Regards.

    Morning, Today it’ll be a run out for this 1960s Onsa, they of flamboyant advertising campaigns during their not-very-low-profile existence before the “quartz tsunami” shrunk them to marketing only within Switzerland and ultimately their sale to a new owner who nowadays seems to hold the name as a sales and marketing business for various fashion brands. This one runs on a 17j Peseux 320 and was bought some years ago from one of the many small units in a Central European indoor market where high rents mean a depressingly high turnover of individual traders. One week a unit is selling handmade crafts and, the next, it’s become a hipster bar. “My” unit had been selling assorted collectables with one small display cabinet of watches, so back I went a few days later to look at the rest of them, some of which, in retrospect, probably had some potential. Packed up, empty and gone. And although the trader remains gone to this day, at least I managed to get one relative goody before he disappeared. Regards.

    Morning, Today this ThusyT from probably around 1950, with its fair share of age-associated patina and, at 37mm, a big boy for its time. Like this one, the few I’ve seen of this brand seem to have mainly been sold from Italy and whilst the name is recorded in Mikrolisk, the maker is shown as “unknown” but speculated to have been Swiss. Today’s effort is another example of mismatched jewel counts between dial and movement and despite the “206” on the bridge, is running on a 13’’’ Unitas cal. 176, unfortunately not represented in either R.R. or Lorenz. An alternative version of the 176 is shown in a German archive but with “207” on a substantially different bridge configuration from mine. Concluding today’s little mystery, a Thusyt watch driven by an AS 1203 movement is featured in a short YouTube video (why??) without dialogue but captioned in Portuguese. Regards.

    Morning, Today it’ll be this 37mm Avia King with its 17j AS 1203. The “King” model was registered in 1946 and this one probably wouldn’t have been too far behind that. Regards.
