  1. I saw this watch subscription service company called watches by lp the other day where one recieve a vintage watch every second month. The cheapest alternative costs 32 Pound and I saw pictures of the watches in another forum and the watches looked good. What do you think? Have you heard about it and Is it worth it in your opinion?
  2.

  3. 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,
  4. 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.
  5. I recently pulled this watch I inherited a long time ago out of the safe and have been trying to identify which year it was made, and failed miserably to nail it down. Since a few kind folks here on the forum recently kindly helped me with a similar search for knowledge I was hoping someone here might be able to pin it down — a big thank you in advance for indulging me. It's a Chronoswiss Lunar Chronograph with moonphase, marked with reference number 77990. Given who owned it before and their biography, I'd expect this to be from around 1985-1993. I looked in every place I could
  6. This is a watch i found at my grandfathers house, would anyone be able to tell if it is an authentic watch? https://postimg.cc/McpJ7hxr
  7. First post here so bare with me.. I have recently purchased a Swiss watch which is branded as a Rone incabloc and a 17 jewel. I loved the look of the vintage/worn dial and so I grabbed it! I tried doing abit of research on the Rone brand but found very little info apart from they produced Swiss made watches from about 1920s - 70s. Also there are very few Rone watches available to purchase I have only seen a few on eBay but none of the same model as mine. If anyone knows anything about it please share. i tried to add a photo of mine but won’t let me for some reason :(
  8. I have what appears to be an extremely rare Movado RAF Military Watch 6B/159 and I would like to know a possible value?
  9. Hi could anyone help withe this tag watch if it's real all not
  10. 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
  11. Hello all! We've been sorting through my grandparent's house, as my Grandma died recently, and have found a number of watches. We're fairly sure none of them are worth anything and most of them are in pretty bad knick but we know nothing about watches and haven't managed to find much useful info online. Is anyone able to tell us anything about any of these watches; age, origin, rarity, value, anything at all would be interesting! My Grandad died in the late 80's so none of the men's watches are likely to be newer than that, and my Grandma was unlikely to have bought anything since the 90'
  12. Hello everyone, I posted this in the Dating watches thread first but there doesn't seem to be much activity. So I hope this is okay. Because I know absolutely nothing about watches. So I inherited this Omega Automatic Seamaster Big Seahorse from my grandad when he passed away. At least I think it's the Big Seahorse but I'm not sure. I would like to open it to find out the date myself but I'm afraid I'll damage it. I post a link to Imgur with pictures and a short video on how it looks like. I would like to find out as much as possible about it. For example if it's solid gold
  13. You know when you buy a new car you see them everywhere? Well I watched a video about a watch online and then suddenly everywhere I looked the watch was saying buy me. So I started paying attention and noticed as soon as a good one came up for sale it seemed to be gone as quickly as it came. Looking on Chrono24 there were a number of these watches, just 3 for sale at n the UK, one took my fancy, with a clean silver dial and a competitive price... I almost pulled the trigger but then spotted the lugs. Normally fluted like a Speedmaster this one had standard jobbies.. Havi
  14. Hi, and thanks very much for allowing me to join. I am not an expert in anything to do with clocks, so I'm hoping I'm in good company with at least a few others here, and I acknowledge gratefully anything useful and/or interesting I can learn/absorb along the way from other members, all of whom will have been on here longer than me, and who will have infinitely more knowledge than me about clocks/watches and very likely for a long time thereafter...but what brought me to this forum? A lovely old spring-driven hand-painted wooden chimimg pendulum wall clock, belonging previously to my
  15. Hi, My query if anyone can advise, is about a lovely old spring-driven hand-painted wooden chimimg pendulum wall clock, belonging previously to my parents, now passed on to me. I remember it working well, (too) many years ago, when I was a child, and of Dad pulling the wind-up weight every night before bed. Occasionally us children were allowed to "wind" it up, as a treat for unuaually good behaviour, so that wasn't too often...! The clock has not been working for a number of years, and has been recently cleaned and serviced, but it keeps stopping; It "ticks" for a while, a couple o
  16. Hello, I'm trying to find out when and where this watch might have been made. I'm struggling to find out any information about the maker (which I'm presuming is Rallye) online and wondered if anybody here might have more information. I'm interested in it's history really! Thanks very much for your help! Chris
  17.

  18. I have just bought this Kered on eBay. It's very small indeed. My question is who was the watch made for? is it a girl's watch? It seems too small for a ladies' watch. The lucky horseshoe made me think of a charm bracelet. It's small enough to fit a charm bracelet but has two lugs, so it looks like it used a strap. Thoughts?
  19. My latest speculative punt, an "oh, that might be interesting" last minute bid. Turns out to be a Junghans 17J 693.83 (J93/1). Maybe not that interesting, but it's my first venture into the German watch industry. 30.5mm case, so it's small.
  20. Hi I purchased a job lot of watch pieces as I needed donor parts for a pocket watch of mine. I found a few interesting pieces in the bundle which I would like to get some info on if possible. the first is a rotary sport workings, I have researched this and not come up with anything. I have found lots of super sports but none with just sport on. Would any body be able to give me a possible date for this watch or any info at all. Next is a Rolex watch face. I’m not sure if it’s real or fake, how would I tell? Again I have researched this and come up with nothing
  21. Hello all. I inherited my grandfathers Bulova Longchamp, which originally (?) came with a rolled gold Excalibur expanding bracelet. The bracelet has had many years of use, some of the expanding sections are lazy/snapped, and I replaced with a leather strap. It just not the same. Does anyone know of a possible source for an Excalibur 71 (or similar) expanding bracelet? Lug width is 18mm. Length is 150mm. Watch is 9ct gold, not yellowy, quite warm. Thanks in advance.
  22. How to tighten the cannon pinion on a Timex Model 25 wrist watch movement with day/date dial? The exploded view in the manual lists canon pinion assembly and I've read mention of a friction pinion. Is this the source of the hand slipping problem?
  23. Hi there, Just wondering if anyone could help an idiot out! I'm a newbie and just getting into the hobbie. I've successfully serviced and repaired a couple of old British 'Services' movements. And now I'm getting around to ordering crystals and I'm flummoxed! It appears to be a tension ring domed acrylic crystal. But I'm not too sure. The chrome ring is on the inside of the crystal. The crystal is 30mm in diameter, 4mm high, and the side walls are 2mm. It's domed, but doesn't seem to be a high dome? And the watch case opening doesn't seem to have any indents in the side wall, just straig
  24. Hi forum members, I am new to the forum and have just purchased a longcase clock stamped Wright, It was listed as late 18th Century / early 19th with a moonface.. I have seen a clock in the Longcase Clocks book by Joanna Greenwood, page 17 that case an identical case , but different fretwork and finals listed as 1795 so the age maybe correct.although I cannot be sure teh movement is orginal to the case but hope that to be the case. I purchased this as a bit of a project and something I could afford and look to get working over a period. The case is in great condition wit
