    New to Repeaters, instructions on how to operate!

    Thank you for your very helpful comments Tom, it gives me more to go on, being very new to repeaters I didn't want to stress or break anything, I have tried googling for the basic operation of an early repeater like this one but I couldn't find exactly what info I was after, Thanks again, Karl.

    New to Repeaters, instructions on how to operate!

    Hello Incroyable, Thank you for your question, the watch appears to show a King Cobra and possibly a planet? I really don't know to be honest. I'm not sure what the case material is made of either sorry, although it could well be silver. The dial has several bushels of grain shown on it, and I...

    New to Repeaters, instructions on how to operate!

    Thank you very much Graham for your time in replying to my query, I'll see if the pendant will move (carefully) any further downward as in "fully pushed in" like you detailed (in tandem with working out if the small button on the watch cases rim is locking anything), and yes I'll certainly stay...

    New to Repeaters, instructions on how to operate!

    Hello Members, Earlier this year I acquired my first repeater, however only of late have I had a chance to fully explore its operation (or lack of). I am unsure exactly how one gets this type to sound. Being relatively new to these devices I'm very wary of causing any damage to it. As pictured...

    Moulinie (Geneve) pocket watch, possibly with 2 spring barrels?

    Thank you Dr Jon, Zedric, Graham and VinSer! As I mentioned I'm quite new to this hobby and it was only by chance I found this watch on an auction website, I thought the movement looked a bit odd so figured I'd bid $15 US which won it (there were no other bids) . Both of the watches crystals...

    Moulinie (Geneve) pocket watch, possibly with 2 spring barrels?

    Hello everyone, Once again I have a pocket watch that I'm hoping the good members here can help me with! Brought locally for very little, it caught my eye because of what appeared to be 2 spring barrels in the watches movement (I could also be very wrong). I am still relatively new to this hobby...

    Dent pocket watch movement in a case with a rear window...

    Thank you very much for your comments Dr John, I learn more every time I post here. Until you mentioned the position of the seconds dial I hadn't fully realized it was positioned where it was. I wish I knew more about the watches past history and ownership (and why it was saved and re-cased) but...

    Dent pocket watch movement in a case with a rear window...

    Hello Everyone, I am hoping the members here can tell me exactly what I have here, I brought the following pocket watch a couple of weeks ago, and to be honest I still don't know exactly what it is (I'm still fairly new to the hobby). The watch has a flat glass fitted back and front, and the...

    Stewart Dawson & Co "Railway lever"

    Thank you John for your most welcomed comments, I am very glad to have a EWC watch at long last, interesting too that EWC supplied watches to the London & North West Railway. I looked up the OSD casemakers mark in the Priestley case makers boo, but I was unable to find it. It was this book that...

    Stewart Dawson & Co "Railway lever"

    Attached are some pictures of a recent purchase, early last year I spotted the movement from this very same type of watch on eBay which I won, but sadly it got lost on the way to the Global shipping depot : ( Fast forward to this year and I found this "Complete" watch on a local auction...

    Anyone know of a McLellan of Rothesay, watchmaker?

    My last one for today (I promise!), I must apologize for the photos used here too as they're not the best sorry. Anyway I brought this one a few years ago as a non runner but a careful straightening out of the hands (still bent in these photos) soon had it ticking away. However I seem to have...

    J.W. Benson ladies pocket watch.

    Hello, Below is another watch I recently got around to photograph, this one is a small J.W. Benson (43mm diameter) ladies watch. Now a question that I hope members can help me with is a rough idea of its build date bearing in mind it has no hall marks (although there is an unknown stamp inside...

    The "Dollar" watch, show me some of yours.

    Here's 2 of mine, The Ingersoll Yankee is missing its glass however it still runs like a champ, the movement itself looks in great condition, I like the fold out "key" and dummy stem winder! Take care, Karl.
