Hi Watch Gurus,

Can anyone tell me the age of my newly aquired "West End Watch Co"
Vintage West End Watch Co. Sowan Prima Automatic Day/Date Watch.
Marked on the back of the case WEST END WATCH CO. K.4457 4332

I'd love to know
Cheers
Simon

probably 70's -do not think it would be rare or of any great value as millions were produced for the Asian market .It's worth googling West End Watch Co - they have a very interesting back story -also i read once it was given that company name because its creator liked to visit London's West End district !!!

Good luck and let us know as it looks like a pretty cool vintage watch.

Maybe a Noob question - but is the presence of the arrow on the back an indication that it was a UK MoD supplied watch - like my dad's Omega Seamaster (which I WILL get one day)
