F Bachschmid Steelmaster NOS

F Bachschmid

A new old stock F Bachschmid automatic from I assume the late 1960s/early 1970s given the styling and the movement employed within. I believe that this company actually produced pocket watches originally during the latter part of the 19th Century. As to their status/ownership at the time this watch was made I am uncertain. Classic early 70s styling with an attractive dial and a decent Swiss movement to boot.
