Morning,

1950s Wittnauer running on their 17j 10ESB movement, a modified ETA 1080. The company goes back to the 19th Century, was family-owned until 1938 and thereafter going through various owners.

Since 2001 the brand appears to belong to Citizen by way of Bulova but whose modern-day range has nothing in common with the vintage Wittnauer company’s watches other than the name.

Regards.

Bought this even though the seconds hand was missing because I spotted a spare movement with the hands on eBay.

Despite my clear instructions the spare movement arrived also with the seconds hand missing and a collection of 'spare' hands, none of which were any use!

Hopefully my watch man will sort it.

Jean Richard Geneve Aquastar

Recently back from a full service by Richard Askham and relume by James Hyman.

On a vintage tropic style strap that I've just received from Portugal.

The watch that made the deepest dive in the world history was a 1959 Jean Richard Geneve Aquastar 10ATM dive watch

Now to decide if I can afford to invest in the 2020 Deepstar re-issue...

Oooh, some excellent hardware on display today, nice one chaps :notworthy:

Been having a discussion via PM with another member about Fossil, and it prompted me to dig out this one, so I'm giving it some wrist time today:

New battery fitted, then changed the strap to a lovely soft rubber carbon effect, and a quick clean up - It's like having a new watch :laughing2dw:
