    Patek Philippe?

    ...but manufactured by LeCoultre & Cie. Sorry, I didn`t want to disagree, but many brands like PATEK PHILIPPE took the oportunity to order their raw movements in Le Sentier and let it there produce, according to their wishes. So as PP until they bought/built their own plant (not long ago)...

    TIFFANY's Chronograph Pocket Watch, 18K, Two Sub-Dials, Six Hands (Split Second)

    Sorry Enrico for disagreeing, but if it was done by AGASSIZ, it would have been signed like "Made for TIFFANY & Co. by AGASSIZ W. Co.". The font on the bridge looks like the same as AGASSIZ, but this doesn't ment to be an AGASSIZ watch. Better to cross check under the dial for the fish...

    Movement identification

    Agassiz never used this anchor design/shape with these long arms. Neither with the old movement types (first series), nor from the LeCoultre (2nd period) productions or Touchon (3rd period). Guess Audemars Fréres comes closer. I´m missing also the Agassiz hallmark on the dial side. That it...

    Sector Watch by Record Watch & Co Tramelan (1903-1908?)

    Dear R.Suter (Ralf, Rolf, Rüdi?), of course you´re allowed to use my images, cause I also found them online. Sadly, the serial on the movement is on the dial side - hidden. Fact is: - The serial of the case AND the movement matches (identical). - The lowest of my list is actually no.23, the...

    Help with Rattrapante Pocket Watch

    Welcome to the board. Maybe you´d post better and a bigger image of the movement, perhaps without flash of the camera, please? Rattrapante movements were always eyecatchers for technic lovers. From my first sight it might come out of the LeCoultre direction, maybe an Agassiz branded type of...

    Welcome to the message board! Your movement was built by the swiss company LeCoultre & Cie in Le Sentier. You should see under the hammers, perhaps the left, an inscription "LeCOULTRE & CO". The symbols (hallmarks) were for a swiss gold case out of 14 ct solid gold. This squirrel was used in...
