    Default about SEKONDA watches

    I am trying to find information about SEKONDA wristwatches.
    Do you know something about their age?

    Thanks

    Sekonda is still in business, and you can get some information from their website. They began operations in 1966, which should give you a beginning date range.

    They claim to be the most popular watch brand in the UK, but they are not a manufacturer. Rather, they import watches to sell under their name. Older Sekonda watches were brought in from the USSR, but since the 1990s they've been importing Asian (primarily Chinese) watches.

    thanks for your answer.

    Is there any way for dating a model?

    Not that I am aware of. It may be possible to come close based on styling, and as mentioned earlier, the origin of the movement may allow a general date, but I doubt there are specific records that we could access.

    My guess is early 1970s. Shortly before quartz watches almost obliterated mechanical watches from the market.

    If it's that early, it should have a Soviet movement. I would have guessed late 1990s, when less expensive imported movements first began to show up.

    If you can get the back open, we may be able to decide for sure.

    My guesstimating early '70s was based on the fact that this sort of styling was around in the early seventies. Could be later. Perhaps we might have a better idea once we see the movement.

    It's a Slava 2414 twin-barrel movement.

    Which makes it a Soviet era Russian movement, which means Doug was much closer to it's era of production. Somewhere between 1975 and 1980. I was expecting to see a Chinese movement.
