There is a terrific webpage of antique watch movement photographs online now at:

Enjoy!B-)

That's a marvellous site indeed!|>

What a bright idea to have classified the watches by calibers and to give access to the watch fitted with them. You can try to guess the watch design before seeing it...:p

An impressive collection too. Congratulations to Nakahiro :-!

Many thanks for the links. |> I think I found another early Seikosha from this site in a Nation brand watch. Mine was found in a Chinese Hua Cheng watch.:-D
