Camy Sputnik 1960

 

  

I know little about the Camy brand but I fell in love with this beautiful watch at first sight.

In 1960, with a name like Sputnick, avant-garde design, solid, simple and practical it was aimed squarely at the futuristic market. 

The movement is a basic but reliable ETA 1080 and the gold Camy seal on the back together with the formentioned features seperates this watch from the mostly boring designs of the period.

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
