Well I think we do not knowThank you. So you're saying that this Watch is not Ancre and it's from the
thank you for your time and efort i'm glad i have something to start with.i'll keep searching.Well I think we do not know
I am suggesting that it is like the jewel count and the type of escapement.
While member Bobbee, thinks its a trademark of Picard Freres.
I checked the 'bible' of Swiss Watchmakers by Kathleen Pritchard and could find no evidence to that (Ancre)
So in 'my' opinion the jury is still out.
I still think watch is from the 20s, possible early 30s.
option: bimetallic screw balance
different bridge shapes (cf. Felsa 107)
Example, year: signature; shock device
ca. 1925: -
(the hole for the latch pin in the setting lever indicates the transition to the successor with setting-lever spring)
Well in general watches got bigger and bigger each year a phenomenon that has never stopped.Maybe this helps: my Watch is 37mm in diameter...
Agreed.37mm certainly suggests late thirties. Over time there have been several times when large wristwatches were fashionable (as they are now) and one of those times was the late thirties when there was a reaction against the small rectangular watches of the early thirties.
If you look at the word "Ancre" here on Mikrolisk: Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark indexSo bottom line this is a Watch from '30's or late '30's, but only with a tradename (Ancre) and not a trademark. I understand correctly?
