  1. Hey all, I'm slowly growing my collection and saw this watch (with the blue hands) at a flea market this past weekend: I love the design but can't seem to find anything about it online. The woman (who did not speak great english) could only tell me that it had swiss movement, but it was hard to understand her. She was asking about 850 DKK, or about $170 USD, if that helps. It looks pretty similar to some vintage Stowa's, but nothing quite matches exactly. Thanks! And sorry if this is the wrong plae to post, I'm new here!
  2. Hello First post, I've recently gotten a thing for vintage Omegas (seamasters mainly). I travel a lot through my job and spend a lot of time Mumbai and other places in India ( and everywhere else on the planet to be honest). I've looked around for a decent vintage watch shop in india for years and found nothing; fountain pens seem okay though. I've seen lots of very dodgey ebay adverts originating in India but surely there must be some decent shops there? cheers K
  3. My Beautiful new Garrard 9ct dress watch, this has an E.T.A hand wound movement and is in mint condition, not even a scratch on the glass. £150 ... what does everyone think? any one have an idea on age on this style?
  4. So my last vintage machine has gone kablaam.. I now have a old version of the elma Super Elite. I think i need to clean up and strop the the motor, however i have NO clue how to do this... Where would i go to get this done as i assume this is not specific to horology? Thanks in advance as usual. Jonathan
  5. Yesterday I found something really beautiful.... and bought it immediately :thumbup: Orient Automatic 17 Jewels (CAL.16720) in very nice condition, working amazingly well :yahoo: Here it is:
  6. Hello, I own a vintage Roamer pocket watch which I have inherited from my grandfather. I am trying to find some information about it, but so far I didn't have much luck in doing so. I would really appreciate if someone could provide any information about it (e.g. when was it made). Thank you!
  7. I would like to know more about a clock I acquired from my grandparents many years ago. As I am over 70 it is probably at least 90 years old. There are no obvious external markings. It still goes but probably needs a service. For a photo please follow this link :- https://www.dropbox....t%2015.35.jpg?m
  8. Hi there I've specifically registered with this forum for advice, so please don't shoot me down in flames for asking anything stupid or repeating things that have been asked numerous times before. My father passed away a short while ago and I'm helping my Mum have a bit of a clear out. Amongst lots of clutter is a Rolex Oyster Speedking which he had for his 21st birthday early in 1949. I've done a little research and understand the size counts against it (midsize which some people say can be Unisex). I'm not going to do a sales pitch here or ask for valuations - I know (having scoured the forum) that this is frowned on. However, what I would like to know is, does anyone know how to go about selling such a watch. Obviously I could just put it on Ebay but I would feel a little vunerable doing that. Thanks for reading and any advice you may have Dave
  9. Hello, I'm new here and trying to choose a new automatic watch. I have no decent knowledge about watches, movements and so on... I am looking for something under 350 pounds. More interested in classic looking or interesting design and also leather strap, no metalic. I have picked some watches already, but maybe you have better suggestions in this price range? So here they are: Rotary GS02375/01 (224 pounds): Zeppelin 7060-5 (349 pounds) : and Ingersoll IN8009SL (212 pounds): Please give me your opinion. I personally prefer the first one (Rotary) amazing design. :) Cheers Mantas
  10. http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=1109853&image=647330561&images=647330561,647330599,647330649,647330687&formats=0,0,0,0&format=0 It cost me £900 and I cant stop thinking if it looks to good to be true it normally is, Its due to be delivered tomorrow and i have 14 days to return it so any help/advise will be greatly appreciated. thank you kris
  11. Hi, I am new to this forum and have been very interested in mechanical watches for a long time. I do know the working of the watches/clocks and can understand the language but not an expert in fixing this (i am hoping to become one) I got a desk clock (mini carriage clock). This is mechanical and has Canham written in the face. The mechanism runs fine and keeps good time when laid down flat but in upright position it stops working (in some 5-10 ticks) . Can someone point me please towards possible things so that I can try fixing it ? I am not a watch expert but had a fair chance of meddling with them with crude tools. The mechanism is marked 'Foreign' and has balance wheel and the escape wheel on jewels. There are two jewel pallets. The mechanism looks clean (not in a dusty environment or greasy) The watch keeps good time when running flat. The ticks are even, healthy and loud. The mechanism does not stop. The only issue is in its natural upright position it stops (almost quite immediately). The feeling is as though the power in the escape wheel suddenly exponentially decreases until the balance struggles to tick and finally stops in approx. 5-10 ticks (sometimes in less than 10 ticks). thanking you in advance.
  12. Hi I am trying to get more information on the pocket watch pictured. Its been passed down several generations at this stage and it would be nice to have some information on it. Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks, Alan
  13. I recently bought 3 watches at an auction. I got them pretty cheap - and the main reason to buy them was, that I like their "appereance", the patina and design. After buying them, I started an intense google adventure, to try and find out, what I got on my hands - but I came up short, and did not find any information at all. So now I turn to this site, full of "watch-nuts" and other good people - to see if I can get a little more close to figure out, what I bought. 1. Brandname: "Optima". In the front it says (besides the brand name): "17 rubis - antimagnetique ". And on the back it says: "Fond acier - Noxydable - 7020" http://billedeupload.dk/images/XFZoL.jpg http://billedeupload.dk/images/n3hHP.jpg http://www.billedeupload.dk/images/KQPqT.jpg http://www.billedeupload.dk/images/5WDJf.jpg 2. Brandname: "π Pierce". In the front it says (besides the brand name): "Automatic - 25 jewels incablog - swiss made". And on the back it says: "Antimagnetic-Waterproof-Swiss-Shockprotected-Stainless steel back". http://billedeupload.dk/images/kgICs.jpg http://billedeupload.dk/images/b1rlf.jpg 3. Brandname : "Geana". In the front it says (besides the brand name): "Automatic - 25 jewels incablog". And on the back it says: "Antimagnetic-20 microns-Waterprotected-Steel back". http://billedeupload.dk/images/bNutL.jpg http://billedeupload.dk/images/nN3Q.jpg So all in all - what I am looking for in this thread is some information about the different watches (origin, pricerange, year of make etc) basically all that someone might know about the brand and the specific model. I´m looking forward to some usefull answers from the god people of this community :) Ps. sorry about the quality of the pictures - will try to take some, thats a bit better and more detailed if nessecary. //Lasse

Services pocket watch The same as posted in "Show us your Collection" Services, (Molnija 3602) 18 Jewels , circa late 1970s posted on Feb 17, 2012. Any information would be a great help.
  15. hi I'm new to this site, I joined because like many people I have just inherited from my uncle but originally it was my great, grandfathers pocket watch, I have a picture of my great, grandfathers wearing it on his wedding day! When I got it wasn't working so I took it the a watch menders and they have got it going for £55 which I thought was pretty good! I asked the guy in the shop if he could tell me more about the watch but couldn't really help or point me in the right direction...he did say it was fairly rare due to the type of movement...apparently this type is 1 in 500.....I have done lots of searching on the internet and can find nothing! I have uploaded some images, I would be very grateful if anyone can help me or point me in the right direction of where I can find any further information out about this watch. many thanks for any help you can offer. Ian...a new pocket watch collector
  16. Looks like a 50s watch. Can not find anything at all about this maker. Can anyone out there help please?
  17. An impluse purchase on ebay which has turned out really well! Seamaster f300hz by Neill Pearson, on Flickr The pic does not really do it justice, well chuffed.
  18. I have been given a 18ct gold pocket watch stamped JW and the reg number 713055 18ct gold.The watch is also stamped 15 jewels, 2 ajusts,swiss made. The watch is a half hunter and the dimensions of the watch are diameter=45mm thickness=6mm. I have no idea as to the value of the watch or its age as the assay marks are not clear.If anyone can give me any information I would be very grateful. regards Harry
  19. I picked up this Pocket Watch last week at a local junk shop, but can't find out who made it. It has "S+P" & "0800" stamped inside the caseback and "S+P" & "243" stamped on the movement. I'm wondering if the "S"=Swiss & and the "P"=Patent? The "+" seems to be the classic Swiss cross, so am I correct in assuming that this watch is Swiss Made? There is also a ladies name with a Feb. 1891 date engraved inside. The decorative engraving on the outside has a rose gold dove flying into a rose gold nest. Can anyone provide additional information on this watch? Any help is appreciated.
  20. I Have a Hanhart watch with a serial number that reads #114316. It's from the WWII time period for the Luftwaffe pilots. It's in perfect condition but not running and the only thing is the hand on the left circle of number 10-60 is off but in the case so it's an easy fix. I'm trying to sell I was wondering if anyone could help. Thank you.
  21. Have you guys seen this new Instagram User @dailywatch? Pretty awesome gallery: http://instagram.com/dailywatch Found my next watch there! I think you would like it :)

  23. This odd looking clam-shell watch is another find at my local junk shop. On the case back, it says: "FONDACIER INOXYDABLE (Stainless Steel) SWISS MADE" On the movement is stamped: ""Z2" & "SWISS MADE" on the bottom left curving upward. Above the main gear it says "17 JEWELS SEVENTEEN" It looks like maybe a 1940's or 1950's watch, but I just don't know. It was such an interesting, clam-shell design that I couldn't resist...even if a little gaudy. Is this a desirable/collectible watch? Did I find a priceless treasure...heheheh? Here are the pics:
  24. Hi All, My wife innherited this Rolex Tudor from her Grandmother about ten years ago. It's therefore of great sentimental value and she wore it regularly until a couple of years ago when the strap broke (just a pin) and the watch itself stopped. Can anyone tell me anything about it? I think the case is gold (there is a very small hallmark on one of the photos, next to the winder, but I'm afraid my camera isn't up to much!) There's a Rolex logo on the winder. Nothing on the back. Any idea when it dates from and what it's value might be? Why do you think it stopped? Will it just need a service? I'm planning on getting it repaired as a surprise for our next wedding anniversay - old romantic fool that I am. If anyone can recommmend where I should have it repaied (Nort West of England) that would be very helpful. Many Thanks. PS. Can anyone tell me how to post the images??
  25. I have been given a pocket watch that I am trying to find info on. It is a large gents watch, 18k gold and made by Wilson Littlejohn and Sons Ltd. Wellington NZ. There doesn't appear to be much on the net other that the date maker was born and died. I suspect the watch to be made pre 1890. Any further info would be appreciated. Like rarity, possible value, or anything Many thanks
