1950s, PUW movement. For more info please open it up and let‘s see the movement. Could be a 1361, 1461, 1561. my gutt says PUW 1561 because of the look of the dial.

PUW stands for Pforzheimer Uhrenwerke (Pforzheim Watch Movements or Pforzheim Ebauches).
PUW movements have been very popular in from the 60ties to the 70ties and I think they are worth to be colected (just as a witness of time). The 1561 already was a well constructed movement, reliable work horse.

Thanks a lot, that‘s a beginning...
One more detail i know is, if you press the crown, the date goes to the next day! That‘s a cool think to quick set the date!

1561 was my guess and it seems to be a 1561 which now dates your watch to be made in the 1970s. The PUW 1561 was launched in 1971 and replaced by the 1661 in 1975.

The PUW 1561 was available with 17/21/25 jewels. Open it up and look what‘s engraved under the balance wheel. Thst the only way to confirm.

Thanks, meanwhile i found it out, too.
Is there any chance to find out the year it was built, without having any papers?
