I cleaned out my dad's old desk and found a pile of watches-- mostly junk I think. But he had an Ingraham wrist-o-crat in the original box which is pretty cool. Also these two watches that I can't find any info on. I'd really appreciate any help. The numbers inside the Timex are 334 and the case says Made in Great Britain. Thank you!

Both look to me to be made in the 1950s - maybe as late as the 1960s. Timex did have factories in the UK - Dundee Scotland - up until the 1990s.
Herlin is an obscure brand and I don't have any info on it. Sorry.

"Base Metal: Aluminium" :think: Even so, it looks like an unusually thin case for a disposable movement, and the seconds sub-dial means that a 4-wheel train is more likely than a Roskopf. My bet is a woman-size fully-jewelled (or at least jewelled escapement), low-mid grade movement. (Are we taking bets?)

The Dundee Timex is a nice-looking piece, however the movement really is designed to be disposable, so I hope no repairs are needed.

Liliomere, if these watches are running and you want to wear them, pleeeease get a pair of straps that fit.

... and I'd love to see a pic of the Wrist-o-crat.
