    World War II US Army Air Corps LeCoultre Weems A-11 cal 450

    I just picked this up for my collection from an estate. Circa 1942 LeCoultre Weems A-11 US Army Air Corps Pilot's watch. It has a 450 cal movement. Since there doesn't seem to be more than a very few examples with photos out there on the net, I thought I'd share this one with the board. It's...

    Thanks inbeat. I also forgot to mention, but I'm sure most people will notice, it is a jeweled movement.

    Hamilton Flight II - What a deal!

    Congrats on a great find! I love finding great watches in antique shops and flea markets. My best recently was an early LeCoultre bumper wind with winding indicator at an antique store in Memphis. $12.00 with a 20% off sale! Of course I had to put about $50 into it, but I'll take that any...

    Large Seth Thomas Marble Mantle Clock

    Hello members! I'm usually posting on the wristwatch boards, but I think I finally found a clock worthy of the clock board. I purchased this massive marble mantle clock at an estate tag sale last weekend. The dial measures 12 1/4" diameter. The base is 21 5/8" long x 6" deep. The entire...

    1940's Cartier Chronograph w/ LeCoultre Movement

    Hey guys. I just got a chance to view this watch today and may have a chance to purchase it. I'm a little skeptical because I cannot find another example anywhere in the net or any of my books that is the same. I do find another 1940's 3 register chrono by LeCoultre, but none with a Cartier...

    Help With Unsigned Ebauche Movement

    Thank you Jerry (and others). I just wish it still had that 18k case with it. I'm sure it would be very difficult to find one to fit it. As always I appreciate all of the good info.

    Help With Unsigned Ebauche Movement

    Thanks guys. I'll take the dial off this evening and look for the Agassiz logo. The reason I mentioned Patek is in the watch guide by Engle, Gilbert and Shugart I see in the regulator section one that looks very close labeled as a Patek Philippe regulator. I'll be sure to update with what I...

    Help With Unsigned Ebauche Movement

    Good evening members. I have recently purchased this private labeled watch. Although the jeweler is an American maker, I think the movement may be Swiss which is why I posted it here. C.L. Byrd of Memphis, Tennessee was known to retail Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet pocket watches with...

    1940's mens tiffany & co. wristwatch

    A new crystal is typically no big deal at all unless the case is very unusual. Any reputable watchmaker can replace it. We would all love to see a photo of your grandfather's watch if you could post one. We always enjoy seeing what we are discussing. Good luck. Shane

    Movado Datron HS 360

    I just purchased a Movado Datron HS 360 with the Zenith movement. It's a very large heavy watch. I love it. I've been looking for one for years and finally found one I was willing to pay the asking price for. Does anyone know if this came with a stainless bracelet or a rubber strap or were...

    Help ID'ing Rolex Movement

    Thanks Jim. I never saw the caliber number until you told me it was under the balance wheel and I looked a long time for it. It does say 1210. Thanks again for your help pointing out the obvious to me. -> posts merged by system <- Well Doug, here's the sad part of the story. I bought a box...

    Help ID'ing Rolex Movement

    Thanks Jim. I thought a 1210 too. Was the 1210 made in an 18j variation though? There are slight differences in mine and the 1210 in your link. I did not notice the missing spring. I'm kind of a novice. Thanks for the help.

    Illinois Wristwatch Question

    Hello all. I just picked up this late 20's Illinois watch. It has the original box and price tag too. The case is a 618 by J. Milhening and is 14k gold filled. No wear through. The movement is a 605. It is not running, but looks to need just a good cleaning. Balance wheel moves freely...

    French Carriage Clock Hour Repeater w/ Alarm Maker?

    Thanks Jonathan. I probably will not remove the faceplate and just accept that it is unmarked. I've had several before that were not. Thank you for your response. I appreciate your help.

    French Carriage Clock Hour Repeater w/ Alarm Maker?

    Hey guys. I just picked up this nice little French carriage clock recently. It is a hour repeater with alarm. I'm assuming it is French, but it is unsigned. Does anyone recognize the movement? Could there be a signature on the front of the movement? I know there were a lot of these, but I...

    Can you read this watchmakers name?

    I believe Thos was an early English abbreviation for the name Thomas. That may help you a bit more in your search. Good luck.
