• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Kudos to Dr. Jon From Delighted Novice

Happy to report that the origins of a pocket watch I recently inherited have been found -- by Dr. Jon. This lovely piece has a Longines movement, caliber 14ASN, invoiced in 1890 to the A. Wittnauer company. Before coming here and enjoying Dr. J's help, I'd consulted two watchmakers who had no idea. Within the last month, this timepiece and another, an Elgin ca 1887, came to me out of the blue from different sides of my family...Synchronicity? Dr. Jon, thank you not only for identifying my watch but for sharing your time and knowledge.

Thank you for your thanks but Sterenerp from Hungary put me on to Longines and without that tip I would not have though of it. This forum has deep and wide knowledge and many superb experts.
