    My first watch was a boy size Avia, 29mm excl crown. .
    Still have it but can't say I ever wear it.
    Yours has a nice dial.

    Hi all! Newbie on this forum here so I thought I'd share my Avia Ajustor. Its a 1967 piece and is a pretty interesting model, (based on no watch making knowledge whatsoever) I think the chronograph like leavers allow the FHF73 (I think) based movement to be regulated from outside the case via the two pushers inbetween the lugs. I'm in love with the dial patina and the quirky complication so this one is for sure a keeper. I'm planning on having the case restored at some point too since its in a bit of a state as you can see!

    I own two of this brand. A mid-1960s Chronograph:

    And also my grandfather's watch from around the same time, maybe a bit later. I write about this watch in this thread, in case anyone is interested - with a little more on the brand):

    I was the underbidder on a little Avia tank this week. It only went for £29 but I missed out. In my humble opinion they made some decent serviceable watches and if you can get a runner in good condition for under, say , £50 you have a nice watch for beer money prices.

    Quite a few Avia watches come up on eBay, especially in the UK - and I’m always surprised at how little they go for. Usually decent movements inside, too - ETA and Landeron in mine.

    Apart from Omega this is the only other brand I own. It belonged to my father-in-law.
