Morning,

Prompted by yesterday’s effort, today it’ll be the turn of this 1950s Oberon from Erwin Rudolf’s now largely forgotten Oberon Watch Co. It has absolutely no connection to the modern day “Oberon” brand and came as something of a cosmetic and mechanical basket-case. Instead of using their own Oberon calibre, this one runs on a similarly obscure 17j Brac 903, unfortunately absent from the usual archives although it is referenced in Bestfit.

Here I must mention Honour’s “Oberon Watch Company” Topic of 11th October 2016 and to thank him for his admirable research. I can only add that whilst the movement of the 17j example he shows is signed as Oberon Watch Co, it is actually an EB (Bettlach) 1553/1554, rather than Oberon’s one and only in-house calibre which came in 17 and 21 jewel versions. The two digital watches he shows are equally likely to have EB movements, probably something like the 8807 or 8817.

So, Oberon, an interesting little company and one who, probably on the grounds of cost, initially used their own solitary movement before sourcing from other, more established, makers.  

Regards.
