Hey members! Here is a wrist watch that I´ve had in my collection for some time now that puzzles me.
I havn´t managed to find any info on it through the web (exept for maybe this forum :)).
Here are som pictures. Any input on it would be great.
Thnx!

Above: The watch brand is Titanic President. It resembles the Atlantic which is familiar to me but not Titanic. The case number found on the exterior back is 101031 if that helps. One can not avoid to link the brand to the ship Titanic, could it have any connection to it? Maybe a anniversary watch to honor the ship and it´s crew? The case measures approx. 35 mm in width (crown excluded) and has a manual wind movement. I didn´t manage to find any caliber number.

No mark under the balance wheel ?
Hey Mike, nope. Couldn´t find any markings under the wheel. I havn´t actually removed the balance wheel, only looked for markings at the common places, with a loupe, next to the balance wheel.

I think it might be bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements : AS 1604 or similar. Nice 21 jewel version.:-!
Good guess, but im not quite sure. There are some differences in the design plus im under the impression that the AS-movements always are branded with their logo and caliber number. It could on the other hand be a hybrid model based on the AS movement that Titanic ordered from them when they manufactured their watch.....

Hi and welcome
No idea, but to add LOVELY looking watch, both movement and dial.
It could be a Rolex Canadian version with that dial face.
Very nice

The first assessment was correct: it is some sort of derivative of the Adolf Schild "Wehrmachtswerk" AS 1130:

...with a conversion to indirect centre seconds using a second bridge rather than just a small arm for the extra gears. The one in the link (AS 1604) fits the bill but has a somewhat curved edge to the second bridge. You are probably looking for something more like the AS 1188:
