  1. Ch.F.Tissot & Son Locle - a high grade Tissot for America

    Tissot... a well known lower mid-range brand, making quality timepieces since 1853.
    I still remember getting my first Tissot. When I was at the begining of my way collecting mechanical watches, I got a beautiful, gold, vintage Tissot for my 18th birthday.



    The mesh gold bracelet was given to me by my grandfather and it makes a valuable watch alltogether, despite the damaged dial.
    I don't ...

  2. Levees invisibles - to make a Thomas Russell tick again

    Hi again!
    This time I've got a Thomas Russell pocket watch, SN 81189, made around 1889.
    Bought in non working condition and actually, there was no picture of the movement either.
    For parts or repair then...



    Here it is disasembled. This is a fairly young English full plate, with English lever escapement, and they were no longer installing fusees in them. On initial examination I ...

  3. The Three Emperors' Corner - part five - Grandma's watch

    And hello to you again.
    Today's tale starts right by Cracov mentioned before, in the town of Wieliczka, south from it.
    It's the birthplace of my grandmother, also a town renowned from it's salt mine hundreds years old.

    This is my grandmother's watch - a French Herma. I think she still livede in Wieliczka when she bought it.
    She told me a story she won the money on some declamatory contest and bought herself a watch.
    This must have been somewhere around 1950 ...

  4. Late English looking verge watch

    Spring everyone!!!



    The view outside my window surely is inviting, yet not inviting enough to draw my nerdy soul away from my desk... At least for now, because I'm surely begining to feel an urge to go to the hillside and take a very long walk.
    But this will have to wait a little more - today I got anothe package with a watch in it and that surely did draw most of my attention. Wonder if it's ...

  5. The Three Emperors' Corner - part four

    Good day to you all!

    As you can expect - the story of my homeland goes on, and this time - we're back in Cracov.



    The railway station you remember from part three, only this time we're not heading to the town square.
    This time I took another route to the more southern part of the city, the district of Kazimierz.
