Lunesa vintage watch

Just found this, automatic, working. Do you know anything about lunesa? Didn't find much. Thanks!

I was wearing my Lunesa pilot watch today. Unfortunately don't know much about the company. My watch does keep great time for a 1940's watch.

That's very cool. I could be wrong, but my guess is that it uses a "standard" Swiss movement from back in the day, shared by many other small Swiss companies at the time. Still doesn't take away from the coolness factor though!馃憤

If this is the same company, they're still in business and now design and manufacture their own movements: https://www.lunesa.com/

Nice! Is it possible to remove the bracelet?

The history taken from the website is almost certainly fiction. Was there a watchmaker that used the name? Sure, but he had no connection to the modern company. I don't know that the modern company has any connection to the company that made your watch or this ad:

A book author traced them to the 1920's making women's watches. After the war they shifted to men's. Mikrolisk only registers them in 1946. Apparently they went dark in the early 1970's.

I think that they were one of the small companies that did not survive the "Quartz Crisis". Their name has since been revived.

That's a pretty little 1950's watch. It would be interesting to see what movement is inside. I would get that crystal replaced (not expensive) because that is where moisture gets in.

It should be as it has pin holes or the strap itself can be 'bent' open which is cruel to the strap, but sometimes is necessary.

Seeing I had the watch out answering the strap question, here is a bonus movement picture. I don't know what movement it is.
