Hey everyone! Found this at a pawn shop for almost nothing and felt like taking a risk. It's a manual wind piece marked "Borgward". All I can find is Borgward was a German car company from 1918-1961. Someone on a watch groups I'm in said that they were given away when your car passed 100km. Anyone have any info? Sorry if it's not a German watch, just figured you all might know! Thanks!

Correct information

If your Borward Isabella, my dad had a 1959 Isabella in red, had reached 100000km on the teller and had been regularly serviced by an authorised Borgward dealer you would be presented with a golden (read plated) Borgward watch.

Looking at it now, it sorta has a Volvo look about it. The first one I saw was parked and I stopped and stared for about 5 minutes, that was about July 1957.
