Thread: Incoming - a trifle (Helbros Invincible)

  1. #1

    Incoming - a trifle (Helbros Invincible)

    At first glance, appears to be from the mid-'60s, assembled by Helbros using a Seiko movement. 33mm.
    Any information?

    It was essentially free - so, why not?

    well take a look for the Helvetic ( some say halbien I don't think so) Brothers of Chicago this was were it was probably made and well where the name Helbros came from.

    they used good quality movements of the time and is probable a 50's or 60's piece as there seems to be quite a few knocking around I missed out on a set a while back they seem to be good sturdy watches

    Nice looking watch. I like the size of the hands.
