Help Identifying Watch Movements

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I've recently inherited a vintage watch. I’ve searched around and cant find much about the watch and wanted to know if someone could help me identify it?

It is a 25 jewel Swiss Automatic made by Concerta. 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CwHDh5trHEODtjLuJIgvBXNtG60SaK7D/view?usp=drivesdk

On the back plate there is a number 932 (Possibly Model Number?)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zcn5TUZvSeCZGm6g5o_2kFf8U_2nxA2Q/view?usp=drivesdk

The movement itself has a number of things written on it:

‘Brevets’ (Which I beleive is french for Patent? 

‘Twenty Five 25 Jewels Unadjusted’

’Swiss Made’

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uq8Or9wU0cMjo1drbgAR_EuQ7UZ5Rcmw/view?usp=drivesdk

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FH38VbxseIfeSmLn9ZBbMQaplbjmp_Kp/view?usp=drivesdk

Another little thing I noticed (Although couldn’t photograph because of how small it was). There was something scratched into the inside of the back plate. 

29876 \ (too small to work out)

        2 \ 1975

Possibly the movement, some initials, number made and date? 

This was a watch inherited by my grandfather so any help identifying as I want to get it running properly again would be Awsome! 

 

I also Purchased a Vintage watch to teach myself how to service an automatic watch without the worry of damaging my grandads. It’s a Mondea 25 Chambord. I can’t seem to find much about this watch either other then Mondea was owned by Zenith at one point in time? Here are a few pics. Any help with this watch as well would be Awsome!

Nothing too obvious and not a movement I am familiar with

There looks as if there is a number under the balance wheel that might give you the answer to the movement.

If you are patient you could also work your way through the bidfun movement archive!

Sorry in the delay in getting back to you on the second watch Mondea movement (I have family round) . Anyway the Mondea movement looks to be a  AS 1700  (nice movement). Hope I have helped :thumbsup:

Hi JoT thanks for the reply. Where is this archive you speak of? Just for future reference. And I will have a look when removing the balance and update this when I know. 

Hi Taz Awsome thanks for your help! Are there places that supply parts for them movements still or would I have to buy others and use as spares? Sorry lots of questions very new to all this.
