    Hypothetically speaking, let’s say you’ve inherited or bought an antique pocket watch. Nothing was wrong with it, no parts were missing, broken or worn out prior to or after the first service it’s seen in who-knows-how-long. As far as you’re concerned, each part is original to the watch which...

    I’m trying to solve a mystery with my Illinois Grade 228 in that it’s getting a fantastic amplitude of almost 300 degrees, but it’s running slow by almost a minute a day, regulator in the center. Closer inspection of the balance wheel shows that it has timing washers on the timing screws (bad...

    Illinois 12s Grade 228 - 15 jewel single roller escapement. Timegrapher app Tickoprint has been pretty reliable with other watches, but not this one. It’s giving a read out of around -30spd DU DD and about +90spd PU. Real world let it sit for 24 hours in each position shows this reading is...

    I've been wanting to check out a Weiss watch for a long time now, and I was fortunate enough to purchase this watch from a very kind watch collector (thanks Mike) who kept it in excellent condition. Weiss has been on my radar because of the fact that a lot of the components that go into this...

    BOTH SOLD, BOTH SOLD These two were my foray into the world of American / Swiss vintage tanks from the Art Deco era. In retrospect I am staying with mid-century chronographs, so my loss is your gain. 1. A Gruen 500 Curvex from the 1930s, conaruma hairspring, grade 500, 17 jewels, 10K yellow...

    Weiss Announces the First Mass-Produced American-Made Movement in Decades Cameron Weiss of Weiss Watch Company is going to unveil a watch with an in-house movement on July 4th to be as American as possible. I'm no expert on movements, but this in-house movement looks close enough to the Unitas...

    Update Notes This is an updated list of American watch companies. Previous post can be found here. Updates are in the comments column and the temporary (?) removal of Hexa. They don't seem to be selling their watches anymore and haven't since I researched them in the Spring. What I've found over...

    A few months ago my wife bought me my first watch. It was a Kobold and it was important to me because I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. Since then I've also picked up a Detroit Watch Co 1701 from a great WUS member. And all the while I went a little overboard researching American watch...

  14. WTB - Wanted to Buy
    Greetings all... A few years back my collection was stolen in a burglary of my home. About half were recovered, including my OC7 American 66/100. What wasn't recovered were the links I removed, extra straps and dive box. I'd like to replace all of those items but I am in dire need of a...

    I love tool watches especially ones with history. I was totally in love when I read Crusader's thread about the A-11 and following seeing photos of the watch. When I found the 4 year old thread about making a reissued limited run I was excited but then disappointment when I found out it was...

    When I look for info about American watches on WUS I have to search either the Public or the Vintage forums or some dedicated brand forum (if there is one). This is not convenient as there are many American watches (or with American heritage) that are discussed on WUS. An American Watches Forum...
  19. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I have a Hamilton pocketwatch, brass, that I've tried to identify for quite some time. I inherited the timepiece and really would like to know what it is. Eventually I plan on either brazing on some wire loops for a wrist strap or getting a cup leather one. There was a very similarly faced watch...
