Advice needed on unusual watch!


Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I've recently brought a nice little joblot of watches off a friend of mine and come across a lovely vintage watch but I can't seem to find anything about it and was wondering if anyone could help me.

 

It's a 37th AVENUE POLES watch with a leather strap, it's not working and seems to have been wound to far as now won't wind anymore just trying to see what it might be worth so I can sell it on.

 

Any information anyone can give would be amazing!

"37th Avenue" comes up on Ebay as a sub-brand of Rexor, Manubi and Zoniku. Rexor/37th Avenue is on Mikrolisk as a trademark of Vittori & Cie. / Dolmy SA of La Chaux de Fonds. The crown under the 12 on yours points towards Rexor/Vittori. We don't provide valuations on here, but I think it's safe to say this watch isn't worth much in non-working condition and you might struggle to sell it at all. Unless it has a really nice movement that's worth repairing, but you'd have to open up the back to find out.

Just to reinforce spinynorman's note that we do not give specific valuations of watches here on the Forum, for obvious reasons.

I can add a few points to the other information provided by @spinynorman: Your watch is a 1970s product and my feeling is that it will probably contain an inexpensive hand-wind movement. Here below, for example, is a 37th Avenue watch co-branded Lucerne, dating to about the early 1970s and powered by an EB 8810 hand-wind pin-lever movement with what looks like a single jewel. Lucerne is a brand known mainly for cheap mechanical ladies' and gents' watches most of which have no great financial value. It is interesting to note how the watch shown below is called a "DE LUXE" and also bears various "legends" on the dial and caseback of "special features" which we are meant to believe make this watch a luxury item.:biggrin:
