  1. Hi. I have bought a Mido oval case because it is beautiful. I am looking for a reasonably priced movement which will fit. It has automatic. Day. Date at 3 0 clock I would like hacking and hand wind able. I think originally had ETA movement. Anyone for advice please
  2. Hi all, Hoping someone can help a relative newbie here. I speculatively bought a Sicura Submarine 400 (Sic 28 movement?) as not working. Certainly isn’t running... The hands and date can be adjusted in both directions but I am unable to wind up - no sign of life. Upon opening I was pleasantly surprised to see that it seems fairly clean. However the hairspring has gone - someone seems to have ventured in to the movement before (!) and the hairspring has been cut away. I’m not sure if this accounts for being unable to wind (it will not turn clockwise and I obviously don’t want t
  3. So as normal I started of with 'no more watches blah blah blah' then I saw this: Brought from Jura watches after some negotiations got it for great price. Only got to wait a week or so....
  4. Hi there, just found the first real video, where all OMEGA Snoopy watches are presented side by side. There have always been separate videos, but not together, and they also offer a quit extensive story about them. The introduction to the particular models is a bit late, because the historical part of the article is quite long. So, if you want to see the Snoopy watches, you have to scroll down quite a bit. https://swisswatches-magazine.com/blog/in-the-metal-all-three-omega-silver-snoopy-award-speedmaster-watches-2003-2015-2020/ Enjoy and wish you everyone a great
  5. Hi, I owe a limited edition of a Rotary watch and would like to know how much it is valued. I have attached a few pictures. Essentially, this watch includes a gold ingot that is stamped with the logo of the Swiss Bank Corporation, which merged with UBS in 1998 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss_Bank_Corporation#Merger_with_Union_Bank_of_Switzerland I think it was only sold to employees of the SBC, one of which was my grandfather. If you are not able to provide me with this information, could you please direct me to someone who could? Thank you. Kind regards,
  6. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-SWISS-LADIES-analogue-watch-fond-acier-inoxydable-leather-strap/284128977414 I have an old ladies Swiss watch but I cannot read the maker's name well enough to identify it. It looks like 'Servies' or 'Fervies' but a google search provides no clues. Please help if you can. You can see photos of the watch at the link above.
  7. This was my grandmother’s watch. Not been used for about 30 years but still works. Can anyone give me some advice about winding and looking after this watch? How do I add an image?? https://share.icloud.com/photos/0yeIYHL4BQ0h12r5O3Gq_P2kw

  11. Hi Simon, Very much a novice at this very interesting hobby (for me anyway). I bought Montine 17 Jewel watch on ebay to practice on, it has an AS5203 movement. I stripped it down videoing as I went along. found a broken setting lever spring which I am sourcing a replacement (445/1). The trouble is when I rebuilt the watch I could not set the hands. I looked again at the video and rebuilt the watch again with the same outcome. It seems the 3rd wheel and the setting wheel are in constant contact with the minute wheel/cannon pinion (it is a one piece item. Having checked the video

  13. Hey guys first time posting on here but was wondering if any of you lovely lot could tell me what battery I need to put into a 518.851 Universal Geneve Quartz ladies piece? Usually can find the info online but hit a bit of a brick wall with it, and would appreciate the help Luke
  14. Hi, Does anyone know where I can get a replacement acrylic crystal for a Conquest Calendar Automatic Longines watch (made in the 1950's)? Thanks in advance for any help. Bassam
  15. Hi to all, Recently I got my hands on this ROAMER D310 2270 watch. Supposedly it was pre-war, but I have a distance to such conclusions. Are you able to determine its date and value? Condition: new, with factory tag I would be very grateful. Thank you https://postimg.cc/gallery/8CbWBmz
  16. Hi all, I'm pretty new to watches and I do have this Vita 105115 mechanical watch. I really like it, but I cannot find any info about it on the web? Nor about the brand, nor about the type. (all search results go to Viita smartwatches or to Longines Dolce Vita ) Does anybody have any info about this brand? Or about this watch in particular? It's Swiss made. Family-rumours guess it's from around 1945 (or later), but i'm not sure. I'm trying to add pictures but don't know how that works on this forum... Extra info: 17 Jevels - Calendar type Hands have some glow-in-the-dark in
  17. The only good thing about wet days is you can tinker. I dug this one out of retirement, and treated it to a good polish new glass, and a lube. surprising how they recover with a little effort.
  18. ello. I have only few pictures of Tudor Prince Oysterdate 7966. Can someone help me? Its real piece of Tudor? What do you think? greetings Photos: https://ibb.co/mR6Cjxm https://ibb.co/1TxJhjw https://ibb.co/1RZ02JL https://ibb.co/7tRbkdb https://ibb.co/TmF5NYn
  19. Been coveting this model for ages. One finally came up that was appreciably under list price, not new but unused and guaranteed By Tudor for full 2 years. also this one has the benefit of the NATO style Tudor fabric strap as well as a brand new full steel bracelet. I've almost never worn any watch on a NATO up until now, but I have to say this one looks the dogs bollocks - as we used to say in the old days. Seriously smart but slightly casual. The eyes have already popped out on stalks back home when shown to my two sons in their 20s! It’s caused a massive dent in my little watch f
  20. Hi, I’m new to the forum. My grandad left me an IWC Portugieser (automatic) and I’m thinking of selling it but I’m unsure of how to go about it Should I get it authenticated by IWC for 300 CHF or just try to sell it? And if so, what places would people recommend in London to get it appraised or sold? I’m not too comfortable with trying to sell it online Thanks in advance. Any advice would be appreciated -Jerry
  21. I recently bought an Helvetia Automatic watch marked "32 Jewels" on the face. When it arrived I found that it was marked "25 Jewels" on the rotor. As I thought that the movement had been changed, I returned it for a refund. There was another similar watch for sale so I checked with the seller as to how many jewels it had. He replied that it was also marked "25 Jewels" on exactly the same movement H847. Please could somebody tell me what is going on? Have Helvetia added some extra jewels and if so, why didn't they put the correct number on the rotor?
  22. Hi, I've recently received a nice looking ladies watch with mother of pearl rear cover and enamel on metal dial. It's Swiss but no makers marks or anything. Anyway, I disassembled it today, cleaned it, and I am in the process of reassembly. My confusion is, there is no pallet fork! I first of all thought I'd dropped it and searched for a while before going back to the watch and examining it in greater detail...… it doesn't have a pallet fork. The escape wheel isn't flat either, the edges of the wheel are turned up. The teeth are very similar to the standard escape but that's where it en
  23. Good afternoon, I'm not sure, but is this Venus movement an FHF 25? I cannot see anything under the balance wheel. Love the translation of FHF thou, last F being; "Fontainemelon"
  24. I was fortuneate to recieve a Smiths Astral, 9 carat case, with a Swiss 17 jewel movement from a late relative. I bears no country of origin or manufacture on the dial, just Smith Astral and the crown logo. It has a screw down back hall marked for 1972, the inscription is dated 1974. I can't find any similar dials online having just the arabic numerals, and a centre second hand. The back has the number '1715/1' stamped inside with the various marks. Any ideas on rarity? or value? or is it more realistic to browse ebay for current prices? My grandson has his eye on it so I doubt I'
