Dear @Sridharvc, and @johnbaz, you might be interested to read a useful article about the Cyma Navystar wristwatch; in particular a 1950s example with a caliber  R.459 caliber movement with Cymaflex shock resistance marked, "TAVANNES". The web address for this is as follows: thewatchbloke.co.uk/2015/04/15/cyma-navystar/  :)
