  1. If it is a valuable watch I might consider sending it to IWC for service, I expect that to be an expensive endeavor so will only consider it if it if the watch is worth it. I have no plans of dropping it or giving it a bath.. same treatment as todays expensive phones! All three dials still move seemingly correct when winded up and appear to be original blued metal, but some numbers have faded and who knows what I cannot see in the movement. Is there anywhere reliable I can go or ask online to find out an approximate value of this watch model? I cannot seem to find much info online myself because it is an old model or also maybe not many made.
  2. Thank you again Nevenbekriev. With that many jewels I assume its a quality watch with some value, any tips as how to store it for posterity? I'm afraid the watch's original case is lost to time, only the watch itself and its gold chain remains thankfully in good health.
  3. Looks like it might be one of IWC's finger bridge calibre models but I cannot find a model that exactly fits the look on my great grandfathers watch. Are anyone able to tell what model or guess at number of jewels of the watch?
  4. Nevenbekriev, thank you so much for your help so far I appreciate it!
  5. 1920 makes sense for my great grandfathers last trip abroad. The clock is still ticking so the quality must indeed be nice! Anyone have any idea as to country of manufacture, brand etc? Or anyplace I can make use of the engraved letters and numbers to find out more?
  6. Back with some photos and info. On the inside of the back lid there are three rows of information that reads as following: 726020 IWC 617748 H5 +55231 I'm no expert but I assume the look of the photos place it at the more recent end of my posted estimated age. Any help most appreciated! Photo of movement: Sorry, I misspelled. The info is not just on the back lid but also written in the movement itself. I believe first row inside the lid and the following two in the movement, as seen on the photo. And my mother managed to post a photo of the front that just has our family initials B. I. on it, not the hallmark, bless her Higher resolution of the movement: https://imgur.com/xVLwUPq
  7. Thanks for the welcome! No plans of selling this watch ever, it will stay in the family as long as I'm around. I inherited it from my grandfather who inherited it from his father or grandfather. By hallmark I assume you mean a stamp inside the watch when opened to expose the movement, and not the shield stating 14k inside the watch case, correct? I am fairly certain the number below states 726020 but have no idea what it means. Will get on trying to find a safe way to have the watch opened and photos sent for this thread.
  8. Greetings all, My great-grandfather or great great-grandfather, we are at this time not sure which one, bought himself a gold watch on a business trip to continental Europe. This would been between around 1860 at the very earliest or around the first world war at the absolutely latest, depending who did the trip. Since my grandparents passing me or my mother have been unable to verify the details. I would like any help in identifying the watch, any information is welcome. I believe it might be Swiss, and it is made of 14k gold. I am for now unable to provide a photo of the movement since my mom who currently has the watch back home in Norway is not qualified to safely open it and I am currently an ocean away. Supposedly it still works fine. Thank you for any assistance! O. Iversen Forgot to add; higher resolution of the photos
