  14. Braun Twins

    Back in the early eighties, Braun in West Germany launched a quartz watch with a Swiss movement. In their typical style, it was black and silver and austere. Suited me down to the ground. After a couple of years, it packed up, so I exchanged it at their HQ near Frankfurt a M, as I was going to the city on business. Still working well. original buckle but alternative strap. A few weeks ago, I secured my grail for £10. The Platinum version with date and Swiss quartz movement.. The original strap and buckle have long gone. Not worth much, even together but the designs are my grail in a way. If Honour sees this, perhaps he may be able to add a bit of history or comment please. mike
