Re: ONSA wrist watch

: My father purchased an ONSA watch in 1962 and
: it is beautiful(thin, art deco numbers,
: incabloc, etc.), but I have no knowledge
: what happened to the company or its watches!
: Can please someone tell me how good their
: watches really were compared to more famous
: brands, and how much would these watches be
: worth? RSVP!!!

My father gave me an Onsa watch,which he bought approx 35 years ago.
It is super automatic(Isuppose that means that it winds to both directions)
30 jewels,incabloc,waterproof,antimagnetic.
On the backside it sais :Mayflower tested and has a drawing of the Mayflower 2 mast sailing boat.
it runs extremely accurate(within 3 seconds per day) and has never been maintained as far as I know.
To my information the swiss factory stopped producing these watches in 1972.
