    This watch has been around the world a few times but has had very little wrist time in the past couple of years - being the season of goodwill and all that it seemed right to bring it back out IMG_4106.JPG

    In 1966 was Sekonda still a budget watch manufacturer?

    Nope... until the late 70's.

    Have a look here ;) : http://www.netgrafik.ch/sekonda_history.htm and there : http://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/sekonda-brand-used-two-companies-649514.html

    A lot of chinese redial out there :confused: I believe mine to be original though, creamy patina and rusty corrosion seem authentic. The only non original details are the red hands painted that way on previous owner request by his watchmaker

    Fun to wear anyway

    Giving this one a break from the dark confines of the vault. 1989, 18-karat rose gold for the European market.

    Sorry to inform you but this dial is not an original one! Simple the original watches have only Cyrillic alphabet letters.

    Try some Polywatch on the hesalite, it absolutely transforms the crystal.
