Nisam ladies fob watch help

Recommended Posts

Hello

I wonder if there is anyone here that can help? When my gandmother died back in the 70s I inherited a Nisam ladies watch - the sort that hangs on a neckchain. I don't know how to post pictures but I shall try and describe it:

Nisam 17 Jewels incabloc Swiss made, approx 30mm diameter, roman numerals, gold coloured centre of face, fancy hands. On the other side it has an enamel picture of a rustic looking romantic couple - sort of Italian renaissance style - but the enamel has chipped away at one edge by quite a significant amount, so it is not perfect. It is in working condition.

What sort of date would this be? Does it have any value?

Thanks in advance :-)

There are watches illustrated online branded "Nisam" from the 1960s and 1970s, but the Mikrolisk directory has no entry for the brand.  I would guess that Nisam watches were relatively inexpensive and produced by a Swiss company, probably then disappearing as a result of the Quartz Crisis. It would have been nice to have a couple of photos of the watch in question, but in my mind I can picture generically the sort of pendant watch you are describing.

I agree with @Always"watching" they were a relatively short lived brand and probably had their watches made by a private label workshop rather than their own workshop. All those I have seen have been low value even though some of the designs are quite nice.

According to Google Translate, "nisam" means "I didn't" in Bosnian. I wondered if that might be a clue, but couldn't make it lead anywhere helpful.
