I have a Bifora mechanical watch, 17 rubis, shockproof, and I don't know exactly what movement is used.
I am divided between Bifora Unima and Bifora 85 SC.
Can you help me with your experience and give me a little help, maybe is Unima, maybe is 85 SC, maybe is something else?
Hello Watch Community.
I have been given a box of old items from my grandfather that includes this watch. From what I can tell here are the details I know:
Made in Western-Germany
Sweetheart words with a cut out heart
Green Leather Case
Has an alarm function on the side
I got a few straps from WatchBandit to feature on my website, and I thought some folks might appreciate it here. Playing "dress-up" with watch straps is always fun :D
I also made a video of them here if anyone is interested:
Today I am selling Vintage Stowa Seatime for $655 shipped. Despite of the age of this timepiece, this can easily be someone's daily wearer. Here are elements that I love about this watch:
Beautiful and comfortable Ollech & Wajs style skin diver case
Sufficiently stiff bidirectional...

There is some minor wear on the bracelet, but the watch itself is in great condition (as shown in the pictures). Only selling to fund the purchase...
Hey all -
Got to try on this beauty for this weekend.
Looking for a kickass dress watch and was thinking of this or a 5127 Calatrava.
On the wrist, it felt a bit bigger than I thought (for reference, my wrist is 6.5 inches). What do you all think?
Ok, Challenge Sent!
A coworker brought this in today for me to identify. I am no scholar by any means, but I thought I was better than this. See the pictures and ask all the questions. Appreciate any help!
I'm offering this fantastic chrono by Junghans. This is the Chronoscope of the Meister Telemeter Collection reference 027/3380.00. It's BNIB, unworn and really just taken out of the box for the photo shoot. I recently got it not only because of its stunning vintage looks but also for its...
Lately I have been fascinated by marine chronometer clocks and I had been reading few well written books on its history and technical details. I would highly recommend Chronometer Makers of the World by Tony Mercer. I was mentioning my fascination of chronometers to Mr. Rene Marx, Head of...
Hanhart is located in middle of the Black forest, in Gutenbach, a town famous for producing clocks and toys. This German brand is best known for its vintage pilot watches. The company can be dated back to 1920s when it began to enter the market with mechanical stopwatches. Currently, the brand...
My wife and I rented a Volvo combi and decided to drive 4,000km in Germany and Czech Republic. The first thing I did was to open my watch company map (thanks Mike Stuffler) and point the GPS towards the small town of Engelsbrand.
As we arrived several hours later at our destination, after a...
I want to start my watch brand next year. fascinated by the built quality from the likes of Sinn and Damasko, I'm leaning to manufacture the watch in Germany. by manufacture, is to build the watch from scratch (I have the design already) and not from stock parts but uses third party...
I happened to come across a Stowa TO1 at a price I couldn't pass up. So, I'm selling my beloved TO2 to fund the purchase.
It's really a gorgeous watch and a stunning modern interpretation of Stowa's iconic Flieger. Somewhat similar in style to a Sinn 556 but with a much more beautiful case and...
Their website for those unfamiliar. I got curious about these watches upon coming across a thread about them in the Dive Watches forum and, knowing they were German, figured there would be something in this forum about them: nope (there was one thread where someone was asking whether he should...

Great condition, some marks on bezel and case and desk diving marks on bracelet. Not mint but nothing hugely noticeable, overall still presents beautifully on the wrist.
Stowa bracelet has been discontinued and is highly sought after...
I recently acquired a Civitas military style watch. It was advertised as a German WWII watch but I am questioning that due to the absense of "DH" or any affiliated markings. Perhaps, it may be from a different nation's armed forces? It's been an enigma that has pestered me over a month. Thank you.
my partner and I ended up with a 14k gold Lacher watch.
It was own by my partner's father (Estonian) before he died and passed it to her.
What we know is that have been given to him by a rich Finnish friend he had. It was a present for him.
I did a bit of research and found really difficult...
