I need to wear it more because lack of suit wearing opportunities over the past 18 months are putting it at risk of becoming my funeral watch.

Morning,

Some years ago I took a sudden notion to have one of these Eco-Drive thingies. Yes, I know, I know…..

Worn, I think, just twice, and thereafter consigned to my workroom window sill where it acts as a timing checker for other watches. It deserves better.

Regards.

Inspired by the other topic of "modern vintage" I thought I would just go vintage.

I think this little thing is from the 1950s. Its 65-70 years old, has been loved and cared for and given out the time whenever asked. Its fulfilled its purpose more than expected and one day it will just.. stop.

Hand winding today with the vintage Orefa. Due to the Lorsa movement (237B) and "Besancon" stamped in the lid, I'm fairly confident this is by Fabrique de montres "Oréfa", prop., André Fierobe of 48 Grande Rue, Charquemont, Doubs in France. This outfit had a brief flowering from c1942 until 1962 and then disappeared without trace. The delightfully ornate gp case bears the mark of Francois Miserez, whose case making enterprise collapsed in 1964, to be restarted in 1971 by his son Francis. 

The "Orefa" name was also owned by Henzi and Pfaff in Germany and Montres Dreffa in Switzerland, so there may have been some commercial collaboration between them and Fierobe, but I no idea what.
