  1. Hello everyone! i am new here, i am not exactly a watch expert and would be very grateful for any advice and opinion in choosing my first ‘more serious’ watch. I would like to buy a classic elegant men’s watch. Somehow Swiss watches were immediately imposed on me, and after endless searches I realized that vintage models of the Eterna brand are what I am looking for. I had to narrow down the choice to these three in my price range: https://www.etsy.com/listing/981779743/vintage-eterna-mens-swiss-watch https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Vintage-ETERNA-17-Jewels-1476K-Swiss-M
  2. I inherited this old Le Coultre a handful of years ago- no real sentimental value (it was my grandma's third husband's, ha) but it is cool looking. All I really know is that it's a bumper and has a seemingly gold-plated case. That being said, I cannot seem to find any similar watches online. I also can't find a sense of whether it has much value, or if it has radium on the face (I try to avoid lots-o-radium when I can). ANY help would be hugely appreciated. https://imgur.com/a/B6Skv1o
  3. Hi and thanks for reading my post. As a new person to this forum I came here from cleaning up and trying to restore 6 watches left to me from a man I used to garden for. He died in his late 90s. Some are identifiable by online research and are Swatch, Sekonda Quartz and Casio. The other two, which are favourites, are wind-up Limit and Ingersoll watches. I attached photos. They are in good working order..., and I am drawn to the red pointer tipped seconds hand! I like the wear and tear on them, too. Any light on origin or date? Thanks so much. Aidan.
  4. Hello Everyone please can anybody give me informations about this watch !

  8. Hi guys, have kept this Tag Heuer chronograph with a month, it is a Autavia with Caliber 02. I occasionally found the start/stop button of the chronograph can not click, the start function always work, for the stop function, I can press it but it does click and stop, when that happens usually I need to try two or three times to click, but sometime I have to press the reset button first then be able to click stop. And It happens around one out of 30 times. It's the first time I own a chronograph watch, is it a kind of general thing to all chronograph watch? And since it happens not a lo
  9. Hello, this is my first post, but I've been lurking for a good while - I especially enjoy the WRUW threads in Open Discussion. I have always been interested in watches, but lately am developing an interest in vintage watches, especially automatics (largely because my more expensive quartz watches have stopped during lockdown and I'm irritated by the perpetual cost of getting them sorted) - I like the aesthetics of older designs and have treated myself to some inexpensive vintage ones on-line, whilst I save for something special - I'm thinking maybe a dress Omega or a dial pointer Oris. I'm a
  10. I have recently bought a manual wristwatch in Milano, Italy. It is labelled Besch, and the writing on it is in French. I have been unable to locate anything about its brand, age or model online (I've searched in English, French and German). The seller sold it as a 1960s Besch watch. I wonder if it's an obscure watch brand, or a no-brand watch. A watch appraiser I emailed suggested it was a generic watch that was supplied to companies to input their brand. Another person on a forum suggested that it looks mid-50s. Any help on identifying it would be greatly appreciated. Tha
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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....
  15. 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
  16. 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,
  17. 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.
  18. 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

  22. 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
