My Talis Collection.

Recommended Posts

Here is my collection of Talis watches. As you can see, I only have seven so far and I have been collecting them for over fifteen years. They all came from either car boot sales or Ebay, so they're not worth a great deal, but I love them. I am always on the lookout for models that I don't yet have, although I only collect the stainless steel cased models. I do buy gold plated models sometimes, but only for movement spares. Hope you enjoy the photographs.

Thanks Sam,

My first attempt at posting a picture went fine and the photo showed up as you have them. Not sure what happened this time? Thanks for helping out :D

Some new crystals are required as you can see, but the actual watches are fine. Just need a bit of a polish up.

P.S. Anyone who uses Photobucket know which of the four boxes I should select to show photos in full and not the html links?

Hi Scouse are you still collecting Talis watches - - I am looking for some information about them

What information are you looking for? Talis watches were made for the UK market, but the import company dissolved in 1938. It reappeared in 1959, according to some sources, but who was behind it is a bit of a mystery.

Hi,

Does anyone know or can recommend a watch repairer for a Talis automatic movement? My dad gave me his Talis watch and for some reason it's just stopped working. It hadn't been worn for years, but still worked and then just stopped one day. No amount of winding or wearing it will kick start it :(

(It's not worth much money, but it's precious to me - as he wore it it everyday while I was growing up....ahem years ago)

Thanks for any help you can offer.

It's likely to be a standard Swiss movement which any competent watchmaker should be able to service for you. There's a list on the BHI site of qualified watch repairers, you should be able to find someone reasonably local. https://bhi.co.uk/repairer/

A watch is a great way to remember a loved one, I hope you'll be able to keep wearing it.
