    Did this apply when making 402 ton ‘Supergun’ barrels ?
  2. Yep, all mechanical. Not really a problem, just select one from the three or four, maybe five (?), others I have.
  3. Well done, Sir. Aside from your own comments, the pushers & ‘sensible crown’ also appeal to me. Wear & enjoy in good health!
  4. Morning all... Early 80's C F BUCHERER. Cal: 6050 (ETA 2872), 21 jewel.
  5. Thank you! Apologies for my omission, I was tired Too many recent soiree’s I think ?
  6. Morning all... Late 30's ATO. Cal: Swiss 15 jewel. Leon Hatot was known primarily for his jewellery creations & electric clocks, but also some artistic wristwatches of the time, his most notable (with collaboration from Blancpain) the patented ROLLS automatic. This one I picked up recently...
  7. Morning all... C8 FLYER. Cal: ETA 2824-2, 25 jewel.
  8. The cartouche is a mystery too me. If William George Hammon of Coventry is the case maker, he is only registered as trading between 1884 - 1898. IMO, not a movement produced in 1799.
  9. Thanks! It appears to be, the less sophisticated (not a Fusee), ‘going barrel’ movement, which winds the conventional way. 1000’s of these movements were imported into the UK, the American mechanised production methods made them cheaper to produce. London, Coventry, Prescott, would then simply case them up using local case makers. However, these movements were produced in the UK. Lets see some images of marks/stamps inside the inner case back, which may narrow the search down ?
  10. Usually anything with a battery inside (there are a few exceptions) Pretty much anything old & mechanical is fair game, for me.
  11. Well done! Now that you have lifted the movement, can you get some detailed images of the marks inside the inner case back. This may give some indication of the movement maker ? Also, can you supply an image, taken side on, of the movement? This should expose the inner workings, & what I suspect is a chain (fusee) driven movement? Remember, if you ever have to wind a ‘fusee’ movement with a key “only wind anti clockwise!” Finally, please don’t place the open watch head face down stand the open watch on it’s side.
  12. I suspect this will have a lever fusee movement , chain wound round a cone shaped pulley ? Also, if you can raise the movement as described above ^^^^^ , in all probability there will be a dust cover secured over the movement ? If this happens to be the case post a picture & we will be able to advise on the removal of dust cover. As previously stated, tread with care, I see so many damaged hands, chipped dials (ceramic), due to lack of knowledge. Good luck.
  13. Do enjoy your postings of the long lost (sadly) manufactures, along with a brief summary of their heritage. This research along with sourcing timepieces, for me, has been addictive very enjoyable. Generally, the1940’s-60’s was the zenith of 20th century watchmaking, IMO. Thanks for posting.
  14. Morning all... 1960's AVIA. Cal: Peseux 320, 15 jewel.
