I believe I have already told the story in a number of threads. The brand was formed by Eduard Kummer’s Ebauches Bettlach, sometime in the 1930s. At the beginning of the 1950s, they made the Eastern Bloc - and especially Poland - their main focus. They were one of the few Swiss brands in official distribution. And so, it’s the average Pole’s household brand of watches. Most of the better (read: with stainless steel cases) stuff was still sold in the West, though. They did a good job finishing generic movements, which just had to have a minimum of two adjustments. They claim to have invented the date quickset via crown, although that needs to yet be verified.
$20?! original strap, even- what'a cool catch.Falstaff wrote: ↑Yesterday, 7:31amJust picked this one up for $20. Cracked crystal, but apparently running well. We'll see when it arrives. (Scroll down) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-ATLANTIC- ... 7675.l2557

The place is in Kentucky / Ohio and I'm trying to get him to send me a video of the guitar being played before I make an offer. Also asked how he is dating it considering there are no badges or identifiers anywhere. For now I have enough watches but definitely not enough guitars.
