    any idea because i haven't

    I came across this movement and as soon as i wound it up it started and hasn't stopped since, regardless of what you do with it so there is nothing wrong with it. On the back is the number 438305 but around the edge is a metal band with ELEY'S PAT SEP 21/69 inscribed on it. I have never seen...

    I have just got this pocket watch. On the inside cover it has Aubert & Klaftenberger, 157 Regent st. 26369. The only other markings on it SCM, 3 small circles and again the number 26369. There are no other markings on the case or the movement.

    Who is this?

    I have this small pocket watch and can't seem to find anything about it. On the dial it has German Made and on the centre is the star of david with an S in it and below that is EX-EL. The movement also has german made and there is a symbol of 3 anchors linked. Any ideas would be welcome. Thanks

    I have this small pocket watch that is ticking twice as fast as it should. I was told it may have oil on the hair spring but i have soaked it in petrol and hopefully removed any that may have been on there but it is still ticking twice as fast as normal. Any ideas please.

    Has anyone come across this makers mark at all? It's a beautiful runner but only has a plain dial and the case simply has 'pure nickel swiss made' on it with no numbers at all. Thanks

    Could anyone give me a date for this watch at all. It has the name Badollet Geneve on the dial and also on the movement along with the number 12956. From the style of the watch i would guess mid to late 1800's Thanks

    Another balance cock

    I got this in a box of bits and pieces and has a balance cock that i have never come across before. I have the watch working perfectly now and it would originally have had a hunter case though that has probably been scrapped for the metal (phillistines). There are no markings on it other than...
