Old Watch Sunday (made before 1990)

Recommended Posts


A former basket-case, this 1950s Konak was bought as a chum for one I’d found some years earlier in a Central European market. Today’s effort was able to be restored enough to become wearable.

I’ve still no idea who was responsible for the brand and getting the catchlights to show any of its “charms” isn’t easy. It runs on the ubiquitous Baumgartner 34, often found with a single, solitary jewel but here in 15j guise.

Today’s ancient offering, a Sultana mechanical chronograph with Landeron 48 inside. The brand was originally registered by Mme Antoinette Arnold in 1933. Two years later she sold out to Gaston Schwartz and Compagnie des Montres  Sultana was formed. In 1973 it merged with Le Phare and things went downhill from there. This will be from the 1940s.

Going to take this chap out for a spot of PT.  No spring bars means I don't need to hold back.  High speed shuffling, here we come!


Hmmm....  I have noticed fewer silver dials in my collection:

This was my dads Timex, pretty sure its pre 1990 as he never wore a watch that I remember. 



And this was my Grandads watch which I know is pre 1990 as he was given it at his retirement in 1978
