Running seconds at 3 is normally silver, but it doesn't show up too well, so I found a spare red hand (different pattern to the minute recorder)and happy with that.

Morning,

Another rummage in the Box of Obscurities for today’s wearer, this Swiss-made Synchrona Automatique which will date from the 1950s and clearly has no connection with Synchron SA, the umbrella company set up to manage Cyma, Doxa and Ernest Borel brands from 1968 until 1980.

I can find no record of a Synchrona brand of watch but whatever it was, and whoever made it, there are some indicators of quality with its drilled lugs and all-steel case. It’s driven by ETA’s first auto movement, the Cal. 1256 Etarotor, here in its 17j version, and some technical details shown here for anyone interested: http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&1&2uswk&ETA_1256

Much limited by various factors, not least of which is my complete lack of any photographic skills, I also find it well nigh impossible to take a decent image of this thing.

Regards.

As we all have a little time on our hands (no pun intended), the customary "wrist shot" . . .
