Some of you may recognize the name Straumann for their work in making various parts for Swiss watch movements over the years. The company also has a history with medical devices, and now makes dental implants. This company has some historical significance to me personally because of their medical device work in the 1960s, but I won’t get into that. I discovered that the company made complete watches for one year, thought to be 1960 or 1961. I managed to find an international seller on eBay that had a handful of these watches, all “new” and unworn. I purchased one and it arrived in perfect shape, with the sticker on the case back (although it was deteriorating). No box or papers arrived with the watch. I haven’t had the case open, but my research tells me that the watch is likely equipped with an ETA 2879 movement. It keeps good time and functions well for a 60 year old watch. I’m planning to have it serviced soon. Does anyone here know anything more about Straumann watches, the brand, or the history?
