  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Hi! i have a frankling mint eagle watch from 1988. i was wondering if anyone how much its worth? I have made some simple tests at home and it seems like real gold. anyone got some info on this watch? i would appreciate it alot! PICS:
  6. Hello guys, Could you help me please to rate this very rare vintage Swiss Venus. I can’t find any information on web and catalogue data based about this model. https://pasteboard.co/JTjI7tz.png https://pasteboard.co/JTjK0NK.jpg https://pasteboard.co/JTjKjpG.png
  7. Hello Everyone please can anybody give me informations about this watch !
  8. Surprised to see no Ebel owners page so thought I'd start one. Here is my well "loved" Ebel Sportwave from 1995. This stainless steel bracelet is like an piece of jewellery on it's own. Great to wear and very tough as you can see from its scars. But jeez, if this watch could talk... Safe to say I now look after my watches much better than I did perhaps in my 20's.
  9. I have an Omega Seamaster from circa 1954 inside the case back it has a case number of 197 which corresponds to the case . I was wondering what the "PAT APPLIED FOR" is in reference to. Any help would be most appreciated. The case is made by Dennison in DeniSteel stainless steel. https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZpsuQfFEHjsR6s6h8 heres a picture of the case back

  11. Hi, has anyone done any business with Chronoexpert?
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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....
  19. 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
  20. 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,
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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 :(
