Hello WUS Members,

I have some vintage watches which I am not sure of their calibers or have no idea, still learning. Want to consult your experience.

Have an ancient:) wristwatch with cylinder escapement and pin set which is signed AS 52 with 6 jewels

Picture 096.jpg


this one below looks very similar to AS 52 above just nicer finished, but am not sure. What do you think ?

if you are wondering the dial:

At the other hand I have this fine piece I believe a step ahead from the trench watches times and pre- WWII era , no idea about the movement, on the dial below 6 o'clock reads ' Made in Germany'. Maybe I shall unscrew this cover which looks like hides the movement, am just not confident enough, any hints welcome for the movement:

And last, I liked the subdial with the days and pointer combination in this timepiece, and couldn't resist, the movement again is not familiar to me:

thank you for your help

Thanks a lot Harmut, dankeschon. Then, once I am back home I will ask my watchmeister to check that German watch.
They say:
When you hear hooves, think about horses not unicorns.

Unicorn: I so nicely would be surprised of a early hanhart caliber in that watch.

???????!?!?!!!!!!?!!!!!!!!!!!!

(It appears that my reputation precedes me to the extent of robbing praise from others who deserve it more than me.....)

"Danke für die Blumen" but I fear that I have to point out that the reply came from Dr. Ranfft, not myself. Although I could have dug up the three for you as well (and failed equally spectacularly on the fourth).

Oh meine Gute !!!!

Dr. Ranfft I am terribly sorry, I am not editing my post to be at the correct side for accepting my failure. Hartmut, because in my previous posts, it was you who was like 'google', i think that was the illusion. Dr. Ranfft bidfun is a huge info pool really, I am referring there very often if I have an idea of the manufacturer to check the exact caliber, you both, are great assets for beginners like me, I am happy to be a member and have the opportunity to learn from you in this forum.

Thank you both Dr. Ranfft and Hartmut
