    Cushion-cased wristwatch.....1915...Ditisheim/Movado

    Hi all, I have just bought this wristwatch, which I really like. Also, I haven't seen this movement in a cushion case before. The trademark on the dial 1915 was registered by Ditisheim/Movado c1915 (along with 1914, 1916 and 1917. However, I don't know if the movement dates from that era or...

    Morris Tobias pair-cased watch....but which year?

    Hi all, I have a rather nice pair-cased verge engraved Morris Tobias, London. It also has a stop-lever acting on the crown wheel. However I'm unsure about the London hallmark...is it 1824 or 1864. Thanks, Piers

    Movement identification please....

    Hi all, Could anyone assist with this movement please? I thought it may have been a Le Coultre, but on the dial plate there are the initials BL..which could pertain to Luxor, Zenith and others. Any help appreciated Thanks, Piers

    Going-barrel pair-cased watch

    Hi all, So....here's something I haven't seen before. It's a pair-cased going-barrel movement. It's a perfect fit...but is it likely a recase...I thought paircased examples were always fusees? It's dated 1889. I forgot what that trademark stamp is too! Thanks, Piers

    Interesting old Patria/Pataca pocket watch.

    Does anyone know who may have manufactured the ebauche? Could it have been Brandt?

    Interesting old Patria/Pataca pocket watch.

    Hi all, Patria watches crop up from time to time...and the association with Brandt and Omega is known. However, the brand Pataca is much more of an enigma as far as I can tell. There was a thread opened here by someone way back in 2012 re Pataca, but no-one responded. So...what I have is a...

    Mainspring replacement for military JLC pocket watch

    Hi all, I have a Jaeger le Coultre WW2 pocket watch with a 467/2 calibre 15-jewel movement. The mainspring is u/s and wandered if anyone knows if there is a compatible mainspring I could use as a replacement...maybe from a separate calibre? Thanks in anticipation, Piers.

    Another Swiss trench watch...but whose is it ?

    Hi all So, here we are with yet another early 1900s ish trench watch. The movement though is a bit of a teaser: it looks very like Minerva but also similar to Leonidas....also suggestive of Brandt/Omega but I don't think it's the latter. I can't seem to find a match on the Ranfft site. Anyone...

    Movement identification please...1940 wristwatch.

    No I haven't Jim. Also I'm a tad reticent to explore under the dial..even though I've done it many times before. I just thought someone would recognise it on the off-chance. In the event I may have to do the business since that's where many clues are.....although I'd prefer not to. Piers

    Interesting movement identification....looks similar to a Rebberg.

    Yes....that excellent!....I'd never have found it! And since you've identified it, I found a watch on the internet with the exact same movement! Many thanks, Piers
