I got this pocket watch awhile ago and the man that i got it from said the watch was 900 silver and was made around late 1800s and he had shown some of the markings it had and showed the movement which does work. I've never really thought about what company made this as I'm assuming the 7 digit...
I have a beautiful and nicely working Burlington Special pocket watch. Model 5, grade 174, 19 jewels, made in 1908.
Unfortunately the hands of the watch are not in the best shape. Does anybody know where I could find a set of hands for this model? Preferably old new stock but I'd...
I'm waiting for some spare parts to arrive so I took up an idea that I have had for a long time: restoring and / or making custom dials.
I want to try treatments of various types to polish, paint and print dials.
Long ago I took apart a pocket watch that finally ended up in the spare parts...
I recently inherited this old pocket watch from my late grandmother. It was received by her father as a 50-years birthday present from his employer. I haven't done any watch photography before (even though Ming Thein is my photography guru). So I borrowed a consumer-grade Olympus camera and the...
Good afternoon gentlemens,
I have just missed the really good quarter repeater in working condition and feel really sad about it :( And I'm still looking for the right marriage watch and this time it can be something interesting. Or not.
I met so many bad sellers...recently I've found a...
Good evening gents, I have a question regarding the movement below.
So I've found this nice-looking movement but I'm still in doubt. Could you please help me to dig some more information about it?
I can see that it has the typical Breguet balance wheel and also typical for breguet blue...
A friend of mine gave me this watch today, it has International Watch C.º on the dial, a beautiful wood case and inside a swiss movement signed by the famous watch maker. It's a pocket watch on a clock case, the movement is in a very poor condition, has lots of dirt, but I don't think...
I recently saw a nice and interesting old pocket watch on the internet, being sold by an old man.
The pictures he sent me are not clear, i tried to look for the model on the internet, but didn't managed to find any that looks the same.
*The hands are missing. It is sold as "not...
This is my first post in f11, most of the time I hang out in f10 and occasionally in f71.
Although I don't collect any pocket watches and all my vintage wristwatches are Soviet-made I would very much like to find out as much as I can about this particular pocket watch right here:
I've started a new job which doesn't really lend itself to wearing watches too often so it's time to thin out the collection a bit. For sale is my Vintage Vacheron Constantin Conversion. This is a pocket watch which has been converted into a wrist watch, also known as a "marriage watch"...
First post here, also just new to the "scene"... Being an engineer I have always been amazed by the intricate and precise machines of mechanical watches, but I have never owned one myself.
I just came across this particular one that caught my attention, it is being sold at an...
On the first lid it says:
On the second lid it says the same as on the first lid exept that in stead of 3743 it says:
Also on both of the lids there are 2 squares and inside the biggest one there is a squirrel. In the smallest I cant see what there is inside.
Hello, I'm new on this website and this is my first post, and I'm posting because I have just acquired my first vintage watch. It's a Moeris Tramway pocket watch (Pictures are provided) and it seems to my eyes (I'm no expert, of course) to be in fairly good condition, but it doesn't work. I've...
