    Default Picture--- this time-- for Turler watch

    Last week I asked about a Turner "pendant " watch--had several people read a bout it with only one response--and the respondant asked about a picture in help identifying the item...so I finally got the pictures-now I hope they post to the message!!

    Blaine,

    While this isn't what's traditionally called a "pendant watch", I guess it still qualifies, since it's worn from a chain around the neck. Just looking, and guessing based on style, I'd say this is a 1950s or 1960s piece.

    It's an interesting piece, and would have some appeal to collectors as a novelty watch. You originally said "Turler", which, as you've already been told is a high quality Swiss jewelry and watch retailer. In this post you said "Turner". It that a typo? It would make a difference, as Turler watches are expected to be high grade timepieces in well made cases.

    It might be possible to make a more informed judgement if you can post details about the movement, but if the way to open the case is not obvious, you may want to leave that to a jeweler or watchmaker.

    Regards,

    Blaine,

    Nice pictures of an interesting watch. As you can see, it is definitely Swiss made. I agree with Cary about the age. I lived in Zurich in the 1960s, and my tram stop was just outside Turler's shop on the Paradeplatz. I can recall seeing watches similar to yours on display there.

    Thanks for the info-it is definately a Turler--who knows where the "turner" came from--ha,ha!
    Thanks guys for the reply!
