  1. As I said, I'm comparing it with other Autorists for which I can find dimensions (which are indeed larger) - and whether it was small in the day or not you cannot deny that the adjective "small" is accurate when describing it. It's not really up to me; it is my Mum's although it is possible she will sell it, whether now or later.
  2. Yours! And any other dimensions for Autorists I could find online... I've added some more photos to the Google folder, showing it with a ruler and next to my Ray II for scale.
  3. Ah right, I presume your information is probably more accurate. It is very small; lug to lug it's smaller than yours is wide, and the movement looks slightly different - although I think that's probably just that the structure holding the mechanism is smaller - it's 15jewels/2adj. like yours, with a tiny face.
  4. Hi, I had read your topic already but thanks anyway. Apologies for questioning someone clearly more knowledgeable than me, but are you sure they didn't make a ladies' model - this is much smaller than any other I've found evidence of and was definitely sold new to a woman; I'm sure I saw mention of a ladies' model being produced somewhere online as well.
  5. In a recent discussion about watches my Mum mentioned a strange timepiece she was given by her grandmother; she fetched this watch and it turned out to be an Autorist. It's an approx. 15mm by 23mm ladies case, nickel chrome, with a silvered dial, and although I haven't tested its timekeeping it appears to wind and run well. It's number 1365 according to the movement. I haven't been able to find much about these watches other than some basic history - do any of you far more knowledgeable people know anything? Certainly an interesting design. Photos in this Google folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/2/folders/14f_IzisaR2WKI338MZf2kW4wzh5rMzta
  6. Hi Alan, I can't message you so I'll have to dig up an old topic sorry. In a recent discussion about watches my Mum mentioned a strange timepiece she was given by her grandmother; she fetched this watch and it turned out to be an Autorist. It's an approx. 15mm by 23mm ladies case, nickel chrome, with a silvered dial, and although I haven't tested its timekeeping it appears to wind and run well. It's number 1365 according to the movement. I haven't been able to find much about these watches other than some basic history but I did find a post of yours about your (beautiful) example - I was hoping you might have a bit more information about them from your search? Do you have any ideas about value etc? There's a link to a folder of photos below if that helps: Autorist Pictures Any help would be much appreciated, Cheers, Euan
