    Hi, this is a watch I was given that was my Grandads and I have had a look everywhere on the internet and cannot find any information on it anywhere. Does any one know what the watch is called? Many Thanks, Jay.

    It's a watch with an MB symbol on the face that can be bought from a dealer, AFAIK.

    As I'm sure you have discovered, the range of watches bearing a Mercedes icon is enormous.

    Your example is a nice looking watch of simple design and minimal functionality. It is probably a mass produced movement by a far eastern manufacturer and as huey suggests was likely part of a Mercedes fashion accessory range. Quartz movements were not generally available before 1970, so it almost certainly postdates that.

    Remember seeing similar at the Gift Fair Birmingham in a suppliers catologue.
    Cost single pounds branded depending on quantity.
    Watches leave the Far East for around 1 US Dollar upwards.

    Take it to a watch dealer they will wip back off for you and show you the movement and likely origin

    If it was your Grandads, then I would say the sentimental value will be far more than any money value.

    It's a nice watch .... Does it still work? I could be tempted to part with a few quid for it...

    No way I could part with a watch of my grandfather. I still have an 8 day pocket watch and wouldn't sell it for the world on a stick.
    I feel saddened that your financial predicament forces such a sale chap.
