Olympos Mystery Dial Manual Wind
« on: June 07, 2018, 10:33:52 AM »
Hi,  Like most of you I have owned thousands of watches and a few Zodiacs over the years.  I am trying to find info on my newest find.  This is an Olympos Mystery Dial with a manual wind movement.  It has no seconds hand and is very thin like an evening watch.  Case back is 2001 inside.  See pics and any info is appreciated, 
Scott

What a puzzle!
Never seen Peseux 330 caliber in Olympos. Would love to see how it is integrated with hour disk.
Crown looks completely wrong for Olympos.
In the same time hour disk and minute hand appear correct. No second hand is consistent with design of the caliber. It has sub second.
Case back is right for manual winding mechanism.
Puzzled.

I have seen the exact same model at least once before.  However, it was in another watchmaker's stock and was pretty trashed so I did not get to look at it well enough to determine its originality. 

They did use the Peseux 330 often enough in some of their manual wind dress watches during this time, most of the ones I have had over the years are marked as Zodiac Caliber 55.

Interesting input!  I am still amazed at the thickness,  the case is barely 3mm thick not includin case back and crystal.  The crown does look like a replacement. Wears very nicely too.

Does anyone have specs on the ladies olympos watches?  All the ads i find indicate the manual wind watches were ladies models,  were they the same case size?
