  1. 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.
  2. Hello every one, i would like to share some photos of my panerai strap Hope u enjoy its
  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 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
  5. The image shows the broken spring from my clock. I think it is called a pawl spring or a click spring. I am not familiar with the english words. Who knows where i can buy a replacement spring and the little rivets to attach it again to my clock. Thanks, Charles https://photos.app.goo.gl/rZcDW6SUmSmHjeCTA
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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?

  10. 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,
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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 :(
  15. I have what appears to be an extremely rare Movado RAF Military Watch 6B/159 and I would like to know a possible value?

  17. 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
  18. 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'
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
