    Hi all, first post here, but I have been a long time amateur collector of watches. I recently found an old Helbros watch that was my Dad's (possibly from the 1950's?). I don;t know much about it other than Helbros was a more of an everyday mans watch I gather. I see it is Swiss unadjusted...

    Lovely vintage Helbros watch. Self winding. Gold plated. The gold plating is worn a bit but the watch is quite nice. Stainless back. Works well. I wound it just a few twists, wore it and it kept good time for 24 hours. Just trimming down the watch collection. $30 plus $3 postage in the US. $10...

    Hi all, I've been lurking here for a while, learning more about watches from all you fine people as I've been working on building myself a small collection.

    Why #2? Because Patrick_Ethanbeat me to the punch and I'm borrowing his thread title :-) I acquired my late father's vintage Helbros diver, and had the movement replaced as per this thread, so I decided to update the strap and swapped out the 80s expansion bracelet for a Bond NATO. $50 for the...

    I've got an old Helbros that was recently serviced and it's keeping great time! One thing that concerns me though, is that winding seems to have more resistance than before. That seems like a good thing, but the crown spins backwards a little when I release it. No, it's not wound all the way...

    I have a vintage Helbros Diver that belonged to my Father. I brought it to the mall thinking the battery wasn't running, but it turns out the movement is borked. The owner of the shop asked me if the watch has sentimental value, because the movement is Swiss and a repair would probably cost more...

    This is a crappy post and I know it, but I thought someone with better knowledge of this forum could help me out because I can't find any previous posts about this for some reason... I've taken my vintage Helbros Invincible (ebay link) to a local repair shop to get an estimate and they called...

    As promised here is the other watch that I purchased from the same shop where I got the Hamilton. It is a Helbros Invincible from the sixties I would guess. It doesn't say any country of origin on the dial or movement however, and I don't recognize the movement. This one was also $10 running so...

    Vintage Helbros Railroad pocketwatch. Crystal is in amazing condition, and free of heavy scratches, case shows wear that should be expected of a watch of this age...very nice patina all around, but no heavy nicks or dents. Dial is clean and superb, with only the slightest fading of the red 24...

    Hello! I am Brand new here! Wondering if anyone with ANY knowledge about watches at all (more than me) can help me determine if this watch is a vintage Helbros or worth nothing! Also - Is there any way to know if the band is real gold? I can not get very good photos. So I will briefly...
