  1. A small correction to my previous post... My hands are NOT very steady.
  2. Yes. It is Secundus. I had sent the photos to West End watch com, Switzerland. Their reply is as follows:- " Secundus means fair, favorable, lucky. This sub-brand was launched in the 1930's as pocket watches as well as wrist watches, more convenient for soldiers… Your watch also dates back to this period. We hope that this information will be helpful. With best regards from Switzerland. WE / Sandra " Another reply:- " The watch was produced by West End Watch Co. in Switzerland for the Indian market. But we can’t trace which suppliers provided the components ; the archives of our company are held in a museum not in our factory. Best regards, WE / Sandra " I usually don't open watch backs as my hands are very steady. I need to ask the guy who restores my watches, but to the current Covid here in India, that is going to take time.
  3. Thank you very much for the info. Actually I was in touch with Mr. David Boettcher last year ( during the first Covid wave ) regarding dating of some of my Roamer and Angora pocket watches and has been in touch with West end in Switzerland also. Unfortunately my recent communications to him have gone unanswered and I don't know what is wrong. He used to be very prompt in his replies... West does not have much info about the old watches as they claim it is all in the archives of their museum.
  4. Early 1920s Westend Trench watch with Arabic numerals and 12 o' clock letters in Red. Probably Enamel dial, with some very minute cracks and some faded lettering. Any comments on exact dating is very welcome.
  5. Recently acquired a Madorina of unknown vintage. Could use some help. It is a manual winding Triple calendar. Looks very similar to an Enicar of early 50s. Forgot to mention, the case inside mentions 20 microns. May be Gold plated case.
  6. http://roamer-watches.info/features/MST372/5/gallery.shtml If possible could you send me the links for the ads regarding Roamer.
  7. A special Roamer. Roamer:- Information is that Rolex took exception to Roamer using this logo, as the five diamonds above the RW logo looked too similar to the Rolex logo. Roamer only used this logo in 1957/8.
  8. Believe it is called WAFFLE dial. According to my sources it is a 1953 manufacture, which I can't confirm now.
  9. A 1958 Tissot seastar with a Dotted dial.. Has never seen a dial like this. Except for some blemishes in the crystal, everything else is ok. Can somebody validate the dial.
  10. A Delfin Edox with dust cover and all. Unable to get precise year. Some help please. Runs fairly well losing about a minute in 24 Hours with a leather strap.
  11. Thanks for the feedback. Will double check.
  12. A well running Front opening Single case Tissot Visodate Seastar Seven. Running very well and keeps up fairly good time. Going by serial and model numbers I suspect it is 1955. Seems to be 20 Micron gold plated. Please correct me if I am wrong.
  13. Will post the movement picture soon.
