Any info from Jeff?

Any info, Jeff? I was hoping your research would shed additional light on this little known brand.

: I just received a cushion case Primato chronograph with a dial
: virtually identical to the one shown on this great website (the
: Primato "Autavia" poor man's Heuer). Silver
: "panda" dial with orange marker highlights, orange
: chrono seconds hand and, orange accented subdials. The watch is
: NOS. Runs quite well but should probably have a service (if I
: can find a local watchmaker in central VA who will do vintage
: watches). I'm wondering if Jeff has unearthed any additional
: info on the brand Primato? I can't find any company info despite
: numerous searches on the web (pictures show up but no other
: info). I'd post a picture but I dropped photobucket as a hosting
: service and haven't added another, yet. Any info from anyone?
