Keeper Alert!

Morning,

Generally thought of as being an American brand with a Swiss subsidiary and having a long, not always illustrious history, my 1950s Helbros (Helbein Bros) gets a rare outing today. This particular example was made in Germany and runs on a 17j PUW 61, considered to be one of the best large-scale production German movements of its time.

The case back is inscribed “Xxxx from Station C boys 1957” so it’s perhaps reasonable to assume that Station C was somewhere in the then West Germany and it’s one of these watches that I’d have been happy to reunite with the original recipient in the unlikely event of their still being alive and able to accept it.

Regards.
