Does anyone recognize this watch or the company name? I can't find any info on Modaine on the web. I am considering buying the watch and would appreciate any advice.

Thanks

Looks like a rather generic Swiss wind-up ca 1960 or so. I've never heard of Modaine, but there are hundreds of these types of brands that were around after World War II. Most have disappeared as a result of the quartz revolution.

Nice! Although, I'm not partial to rectangular watches myself. What do you know about the company? The seller's asking $40 plus $10 shipping -- your opinion?

Thanks,

Interesting. The logo and typeface are the same as used on Mondaine watches of the period. If it was just one I would have said a mistake in a redial, but with two of them? Maybe they used the name without the 'n' for certain markets? I have not seen it before though.

I haven't seen that Brazilian link before either. We live and learn..
