One I hope in the post on Monday

Recommended Posts

 I found a watch I've never heard of. It's the furthest away from my taste I can imagine .I think I'l go crazy waiting for it.call me mental if you like I didn't feel this much pain waiting for my seamaster O and the watch in question cost me 49 quid.

Can't wait to see this.

My guess is Digital in plastic case on gold coloured expanding bracelet.

That should fit the description of "as far away from my usual tastes as possible".

An internet search has brought up P. Orr & Sons of ... Madras.

Interesting 

I had a search found it dates don't match up it about 100 years out.

Bit of a coincidence the Peter orr born 1803 watch maker was Scottish. I'm a Scott.

Possibly some info on the origin of the movement.

" While Arcadia had started off producing movements, this was followed several years later by a watch line. Arcadia was in fact one of the earliest brands to sell its watches around the world, including China and South America, and it was a creative, avant-garde brand that became the flagship of the Fleurier Watch Company.

The brand sold watches until 1968, when, like so many mechanical watchcompanies, the advent of inexpensive quartz models led to its demise. "

Only a guess, but possibly a "badged" Arcadia, bearing a Jewellers /retailers name. :thumbsup:
