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)
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.
