    $ 18 karat Longines pocket watch with enameled case and bow

    I picked this up a while back. The movement was a 19 jewel 17.89, but it was rusted beyond repair. I was having zero luck finding another 19J, so I put a 17J in it, and just had it serviced. It has 18K hallmark inside case back. The case has some really nice blue enamel work, the bow is also...

    Le Coultre 5 minute repeater?

    I have posted before about a 5 minute repeater that I acquired a while back. It is unsigned, but many thought it was possibly by Le Coultre. I found a photo today that was sent to me by the watchmaker that serviced it for me. It is a pic of the front of the movement with the dial removed. I had...

    Seeking info on this repeater

    A friend brought this to my shop today. It has a hallmarked 18K gold case, engraved T. F. Cooper, London on inside case back. It is a repeater, but unsigned. Did Cooper build his own movements? Watch is not running, so I cannot test the repeater. I noticed the balance has a rose cut diamond...

    Need help identifying this pocket watch

    A colleague just acquired this watch, and is trying to find some information about it. It has an 18 karat case, but appears to have a non gold inner case, as shown in photos. He isn't seeking the value, just age and maker. The crystal has a "dimple" in the center, and the back is enameled. Thanks!

    Seeking info on a Lord Elgin

    I received this in 1982 from my parents for graduation, and I am curious how old it is. I'm assuming late 1940's or early 1950's. Is this about right?

    I am trying to determine the value of this 18 K gold pocket watch. It has a hunter's case and a cuvette? over movement. I just had it serviced and it is running perfectly, as is the repeater.

    Have I listed a fake Cartier?

    I bought this from a customer, had my watchmaker service it, and listed in for sale. Someone questioned it's authenticity, and now I am too. Movement is an ETA 2512.Any thoughts?

    Anyone have a trusted watchmaker to take a look at my LeCoultre minute repeater?

    I just acquired a LeCoultre repeater that needs some attention. It runs, and the repeater is functioning, but when trying to set the time it gets very tight, and will not move more than 5-10 minutes either direction. My watchmaker doesn't want to attempt getting into it, he's worried about parts...

    New member, need help finding info on a minute repeater I just acquired

    I picked this up today, and I am finding little information about the maker. I ran across this forum, and thought I'd go straight to the experts. It has a 55-56 mm. 18K gold hunter's case. Name on dial is James Kahn, name is also engraved on inside case. It's running and repeater is working...
