    Hey everyone,
    A little while back i posted in the Watch Appreciation Thread but no one really helped.
    So now I'm creating this thread so that someone can tell me a bit about this watch..

    So my Dad got it back in Switzerland in the late 80's early 90's.. I obviously know the name of the company but i don't know much about it, history of the company, and possibly the model number of the watch..

    This isn't a famous brand like Rolex or Omega so there aren't a lot of collectors keeping a listing of all of their older models. You would probably have the most luck sending an email to the company PR people here http://www.swissmilitary.ch/Main/Contact.html.

    For basic history of the company, Google is your friend.

    Their main website
    http://www.swissmilitary.ch/Main/About.html

    Your watch looks like an old model of this except pre-swiss military (1990): So maybe a $400 or 500 dollar watch new, it looks nice enough though.

    Nice looking watch...but It's a quartz battery operated watch.
    Based on the threads here, not much loved....try posting on the poor man watch thread
    to get some feedback.
