  1. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I picked up this little Waltham trench watch on ebay a number of days ago on impulse. The condition caught my eye, but I am not terribly familiar with vintage watches such as these. However, from what I understand, it dates back to the early 1900s and has been disassembled and oiled. It's...
  2. Pilots' & Military watches
    Hi! I'm Korean and recently got discharged from my country's army after 2 years of service. I've been developing an interest for vintage watches, and my current rotation of watches lack a field watch (mostly dressy ones and two Casios I wore in the army). So as a way of celebrating my...

    Hallo My adventure with diving watches led me to write a book on this subject in 2018. Currently, the book is translated into English (title – “Time to breathe – history of diving watches). It's a little piece of first chapter. I will be very grateful for your opinions. I. Development of...

    Hey guys, :) I'm curious to hear your opinions about this Waltham. Also, if anyone can help me to answer these questions, please do: Has the movement been in a pocket watch earlier and just recased into this one? I have seen people talk about that in other forums about watches like this...

  9. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi! Bought this from a thrift store. Not sure if it's a wrist or pocket watch. 30mm. The dial is hard and smooth, possibly ceramic? The movement appears to have all the parts, but since it doesn't have a crown or crown stem, I can't wind it to see if it works. - How old is it? - Can it be...

    Vintage Timex 1979 Viscount Calendar Automatic This vintage automatic Timex has a spectacular blue sunburst dial. It’s vintage-sized at 35.5mm diameter, but the tonneau case makes it wear much larger. It uses the last in-house automatic movement ever manufactured by Timex. I acquired this...

    I rescued this lot from a local junk shop. Lots of little, gold, Art Deco ladies watches. I figure someone will give them the love they deserve. Unless stated, assume they are not running and need work. Add $5 shipping to any or all. Timex Eletric - $10 - looks pretty decent, original band...
  12. Vintage & Pocket watches
    So I'm relatively new to the watch world, and over the last year or so I've picked up a few watches (plus a few others I've accumulated randomly over the years before).

    I bought a bag of watches today and there was this strange 7 jewel Waltham. I can't find any references to this model and wondering if anyone seen one like it before. It is a decent size for the time it was produced. I'm guessing it is somewhere from 1926 to 1930's. Please advise if you have...
