..well . Not quite good. Bezel insert is AM, seconds hand is from blue Bullhead. Got it as a project watch, we will see if it will remain or go.

yup, PUW 1560D automatic movement, sliding discs for seconds and minutes, jumping hour.

MS Hydro Polyp case, not so great condition unfortunately.

unusual romanian made Orex today

yes..watches made in Romania did exist. As most of the commie countries they took pride in factory production so they (and my former country also) made ..well .. everything. From washing machines to cars. Most of it was crap but Orex watches were nice

Image


they were all run by russian and chinese movements and assembled in Romania.

this one has baby blue dial with vertical stripes, unusual shaped steel case and Seagull ST5D movement with unique stripes... and really unique. These chinese handwound movements were made on human operated lathe machines so every one has different pattern of stripes. Movement itself is almost unbreakable and watch also has antimag cover under caseback

design might be marmite but watch itself is great example of unknown companies that made watches in past

@sinner777 - That Orex is really rather nice, Sinisa.

Marmite? I like Marmite.

Enjoy it.

New (to me) Mentor. Running fast - needs a new crystal, crown and a service, but I see a gem hiding beneath.
