It is 30mm wide and 40mm long, the movement is a 17 jewel, I have not had the back off to identify the movement though. It is the size of a large thumb and it looks better in pictures than in person. It is called a Jump Hour, but it is not a true jump hour. The disc is a slow, gradual turn to a smaller number before slowly turning to the next number as opposed to the snap.
The history of Sicura is interesting; They were a lower end Swiss watch and the owner had the chance to buy Breitling. He thought that the Sicura name would bring down the Breitling name, so he stopped making Sicura. On Ebay, you will see people claim that the Sicura is part of Brietling, it is not, but it is under the same ownership.
Ebay has some good deals on SIcura, I have been wanting one of their divers for a while, but they go for too much money. They have been going up in value too. I'm not sure why, unless people are buying into the Breitling deal. It was a cheaply made watch, I think it is similar to Sheffield and Louvic cheap. (I have a Sheffield and Louvic, so that is how I am making the comparison)
