    Here is one of my all time favorites.. A 20's enamel dial sterling silver Nassau. Mvmt is signed Ditishiem.. Now I know that the Didishiem family was a historical part of the swiss watch industry, but this spelling.. Is it just a translation thing? anyway... I have never gotten around to having a the balance staff replaced.. One good thing about vintage watches is they are inexpensive.. But then its hard to put 100.00 of service in a 100.00 watch..Oh well,

    Enjoy

    Oddly enough, Didisheim (which became Marvin eventually) was a different company than Ditisheim (which became Vulcain). They were both in La Chaux de Fonds, although Didisheim moved there probably 40 years after Ditisheim was founded there. Imagine the poor postman!

    Anyway, it's a beautiful watch. I have a recased Waltham 3/0 with a similar look that I've been working on. But yours is authentic.

    Regards,
    Mike
