    Function Opinion on what to do with a dial

    Joey-Thanks for your post. It reminded me of my dad's Benrus. He won it from a call-in radio show trivia contest in the 1950's and he always loved telling the story. It was never really worn and so is in wonderful shape in it's original box. A nice family memory.

    Junk shop find....Longines!

    Interesting junk shop find this week for $3. It's a wristwatch movement - so I"ll post to this forum. 1974 Longines 847.4 movement in a ladies pendant- sterling silver case marked Longines-Wittnauer with sterling silver chain. Not something that I will wear ;), but my college age daughter...

    Homer Watch?

    This one was a $15 flea market find. Besides Citizen Homers, which this is not, an online search for Homer watches shows mostly low end watches and some quartz ones. This one, however, has a nice 1950's FHF 28 movement inside of a sharp 10kt plated case. Needed a crystal, several cleanings and...

    Gübelin Watches

    Here are 3 that I have. The first one is a Schild 1194. The folks at Gubelin noted that the dial is in "truly beautiful condition" and that "very interesting are the minute and second indicators, which additionally breaks down 1/5 of a second". The second is a Schild 1950's 1320 automatic...

    Funky 1970's Bulova

    Bought this for $3 in a junk shop last weekend. Inside is a Bulova 11AOACD. It was missing crystal and crown, but ticked. Luckily dial/dial markers weren't damaged even though it was buried in a pile of costume jewelry. I thought for sure that this wasn't the correct case-but it is marked...

    Nice Lorsa 237B - Cool Dial!

    Flea market purchase. A Lorsa 237B inside - in fine shape. But check out that dial! The red letters are hard to read-but it is branded DYNO. Love that basketweave print. Only needed cleaning and oiling and it's running like a top.

    GFC Besancon Wrist Watch

    Hi All, Thought this was an interesting one to share. Recent, very cheap purchase. It is an ETA 1080 movement with dial labeled GFC Besancon. I know from internet that Besancon is a French watch making city/center. It needed a stem, crown and detente lever and is now running nicely. Nice...

    2 Oldies-Beguelin and Pierce

    Fixed up a neat little old Pierce watch for a friend, and he gave me this fixer upper in return. I've attached pics of both. The Beguelin has a AS 340, 6J, 2 adj movement inside and a killer case. Does anyone know what movement the Pierce is? Both needed stem and crown help, hands, crystals...

    2 Ingersoll Wrist Watches

    Hi all! Well - these two were certainly an adventure to get running. I've had them for a while-paid just a few dollars for them both at a flea mkt. The 17 jewel one is an HB 115 movement. It had an unhooked mainspring, a loose pallet jewel, and a tiny metal shard floating around in the...

    What are YOU wearing today? Please share!

    Just got this super clean Zodiac Rotographic at a flea market for almost nothing. AS1361N movement. Interesting to work on. Barrel had a brake spring and mainspring. Weight has a nice mechanism too. Definitely a keeper!

    Movement ID? Rosieres Watch

    Hi all! Does anyone know what movement this is? I'm trying to repair/replace the broken staff, bent balance wheel and twisted pinned hairspring. :( Would be nice to know what it is so I might find correct donor parts instead of tearing into my scrap box. Looks like 10.5 lgn. Thanks!

    1950's Tissot

    Nice! Got a similar one a few months back. Super clean-just needed a thorough clean/oil.

    Defender Watch Co.

    Another under $5 flea mkt find that is now ticking away after some minor repairs. You don't see much about these online. Lovely design with crystal and case back forming a nice tight lozenge that case top then fits over. 2 piece stem/crown is not perfect match-but made do with parts on hand.
