Garuda....yes another never-ending questions pop up again inside my head....
Who and what did pioneer this brand??
Well, this is the best Garuda watch I have at the moment :P Got it from my watch colleagues :)
And it's automatic all of my Garudas before this have manual winding, so this is my first automatic Garuda.
It's a little bit hard(or harder?) to get automatic type of Garuda, hopefully I'll find another in the future.
Garuda 5 Crystal , made in Swiss, ca. 70s??
Mineral glass, unpolished with dings-dangs here n there... no cracks
The case was plated with glossy black colour and unpolished

All hands, crown, and machine all in original parts
