This 1950s Medana wrist watch is an excellent timepiece for the lover of vintage styling. All original with a clean, uncluttered, highly legible-at-a-glance design. I love the relatively over-sized crown, and the drilled lugs are a convenient, functional touch. caliber 377, an 11-½ ligne, pin-lever escapement, 7-jewel handwinder running at 18,000 A/h.
The Medana Watch Company was the UK branch of Meyer & Studeli (MST) who were perhaps best known for their Roamer watches.
The watch has a hand-winding movement which is working nicely but has a slight recoil when winding.
The watch itself measures 32.5mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is stainless steel and it is in lovely condition, as is the lens.
The signed dial states that the watch is both ‘water resist’ and ‘shock resist’ but, as with any vintage watch, it should be kept away from water. The dial is in good condition with original hands, red centre seconds hand and an outer minute track. Hands show some flaking of the original paint, especially on the second hand. Comes with original leather strap.
This watch has not been opened or repaired in any way. It is in working condition as is, and keeps time just fine, but could stand a professional cleaning to have it running perfectly and looking like new.

Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
