My Renis mystery watch!! If you've heard of this brand, please let me know. Online info says it's an Argentinian company that imported Swiss movements. I can't find anything on the movement (782-1) or it's approximate age

Renis a brand of Aetos Watch SA / Ed. Heimerdinger & Cie., founded in Geneva in 1958.

If you pop the back, picture of the movement would be nice.

I鈥檝e see some rumblings online that some models could have Tissot movements: the 782-1 is a 17J Tissot hand-winder which was launched in the early 1970s, so that dates your watch (and style with TV-esque case). Renis also made a few nice chronographs.

It is a rather plain movement, but it gets the job done. Other than the 782-1, I don't see any markings related to Tissot, but using your input, I googled it and found some matches馃槉

Thanks Chris! You're a good man 馃憤

yep鈥 Tissot 782-1.

I know of an Excalibur with the 782-1, so these seem to have been made available to other brands to build 鈥渏obbers鈥.

Hopefully mystery solved?
