    Longines Watch I am Trying to have Identified

    If it says 'Longines' on the dial, and is the same watch you posted earlier here: https://mb.nawcc.org/threads/help-please-longines-weems-identification.173681/ then it is a Weems. 1937 advertisements, your watch matches the lower example.

    Time Capsule: Coach Bill Gentry & his 1963 State Championship Universal Geneve watch

    Beautiful watch with a great history, Bob. I saw on another site a link to a thread here, and as it concerns another 'football watch', I hope you don't mind me posting a link to it! https://mb.nawcc.org/threads/coolidge-to-stanley-harris-bulova.118212/

    Help Please, Longines Weems Identification

    It is definitely a Weems, but several other manufacturers made this model too, so without pics showing the movement I'm not sure which it is. I recommend you join this specialist site for military watches, their knowledge on these and other military watches is vast. Main Forum

    Thanks for this! Here is the link to the thread with mention of the watch in articles from 1890 newspapers going back to 2014, then the patent found in 2016. Evidence of ladies wristwatch in the US in the 19th.C. Interesting, once the squabbling is ignored.

    That case back has definitely been skimmed, probably to remove an old engraving.

    I don't know, there are probably examples somewhere but you know how secretive some collectors can be. In the linked thread, a newspaper clipping mentions a Pittsburgh gentleman being an owner of one, another mentions different styles. In the thread it is also mentioned that NAWCC member David...

    Help with identification of this vintage watch?

    Good find, and sizeable at 14 lignes! I have a friend who has a 1909 direct drive centre seconds, he will post on his chosen site soon (hopefully!) and he tells me it is different from the examples you and the OP have posted. So several makers of direct drive centre seconds wrist watches during...

    Help with identification of this vintage watch?

    It's pretty obvious that all examples-even those missing their seconds hands- have centre seconds. Only centre seconds watch dials have the outer dial markers divided into fifths of a second...:rolleyes: There were several makers of centre seconds watches during and before WW1.

    Wrist Conversions

    If not done to deceive, I don't see why not. Many makers of these 'marriage' watches do a great job, and give life to old, unloved and often unwanted movements and parts. Look at RGM, a maker of some fine pieces. Some of the eBay sellers watches look good too.

    Radium Dial Disposal

    I work on my watches and have several dozen, many of which have radium dials. I am of course careful when handling dials and hands, but my opinion is that a big fuss is made regarding radium in wristwatches, sometimes leading to owners removing dials or even discarding whole watches. Much ado...
