Rotary business alarm .has seen life but interestingly the pusher at 2 alters the alarm between vibrate and electronic pings..confirmed with the adjacent dial indicator changing.

Morning,

Today I’m going with this DOXA auto from 1960, driven by their 17j Cal. 115 derived from an ETA 2451.

Despite being rather fond of vintage (pre-Sub) DOXA watches, I don’t recall having seen another one with this almost deco-ish style of numerals and batons on the dial. 

The brand was popular in Poland and other Iron Curtain countries, with the Swiss makers seemingly having contrived some sort of trade deal with the communist authorities. However, this one was bought from sunny Portugal a few years ago.

Regards.

Going out so a change into something more weather-proof as the clouds gather.

Only has 20mm lugs, so made some curved bars with a pair of teaspoons and some 21mm bars, and overstrapped it.  Bought it 'like new'.  Yeah, except for the scuffs across the middle of the crystal.  Almost polished them out now.

Mondaine FHF 90-5 from about 1970. I took it out Thursday evening to change the strap and set the time. Pulled out the crown and was horrified to see the date changing, until I realised the quick set works when the crown is fully out and the time set is the first position. Wound it a bit and put it back in the box, then when I got it out this morning, it was still running, which seems pretty good for a 50-year-old watch with unknown servicing history.

Good looking watch , just wondering how loose is the inner bezel? Some compressors seem to have a mind of their own and move quite freely , have yet to find one where the position can be set and locked.

It’s quite stiff so no chance of a spinning bezel .
