This watch is for my grandfather who died. and we don't know the price of it. We want to get informationl. We do not know how old it is, but we think it is estimated to be 80-90 years. I apologize if I have the wrong word. my english is intermediate. thanks for helps. IMG_20210406_162745.jpg IMG_20210406_162754.jpg IMG_20210406_162806.jpg IMG_20210406_162819.jpg

Hi,
This is a Turkish railroad pocket watch circa 1920-30 the movement is Swiss, perhaps a Unitas or Cortebert. The $150 you can expect will not exceed the emotional value.

I think that ebay in immediate purchase at the price of 150$ will be the best, I am French and never sell by internet.

The inner cover marked ANCRE will also open, and a photo of the movement will tell us more. Because of the INCABLOC marking and style of hands I think it might be newer, perhaps 1940s or even 1950s. I agree about the value, and perhaps USD150 is even a little high. But please do give us a movement photo!

I don't know how to open it and I don't want to hurt it. Is there an easy way?
Can the open version give better information about the price?

Actually this Vialux is not a true Turkish railway watch. Many manufacturers paid royalties to TCDD to produce these watches and the mold was supplied directly by TCDD. for the period it is from the sixties .
Serkisoff of Istanbul was the supplier of TCDD Zenith first and then Molnjia of which Serkisoff was a representative.

Incabloc was developed in the 1930's. Portescap started its production in June 1933 and it was sold for many years under the Incabloc trademark that the company registered in Switzerland on July 6, 1933.
