  1. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hello, just got to old watches, one Bulova Selfwinding 10K gold filled and a Helvetia. From what I know, I'm guessing that the Helvetia one is from the 20s-30s (but just guessing) and Bulova, probably 40s-50s, but again, just guessing. Can anyone give me a history lesson on them? I'll attach...

The two I will be posting in this thread are a Calvert Automatic from the 60s and a Helvetia from I think the 40s or 50s. et first I thought the Calvert was...

    Okay, so I've recently started looking into a few old pocket watches that's been in my family for two, maybe three, generations now, and I found three of interest.

  13. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi. I have a Helvetia pocket watch that I got from my great grandfather. I was told that it was from the late 1800's or early 1900's. Can anyone tell me how old it is? Is it a rare watch? Where can I get it serviced and get replacement parts? What caliber/movement is it? All info is highly...
