    Hi guys, I picked up a bag of mixed watches over the weekend! I’m curious if any of these is collectible at all and would be worth having a watchmaker restore.

    My question is on the Waltham. I have no idea how old it is because all of the serial number guides I find aren’t doing me any good. The movement doesn’t appear to have a serial number similar to the guides I’m seeing. Does anyone have an idea?

    From left to right I have a 1971 Citizen, 1966 Bulova, the Waltham in question, Unknown age Lucerne, 1950 self winding Bulova, 1980 Timex, 1983 quartz Bulova. The three above I’ll make a different post about as I don’t know anything about them. They’re a Richard and a Benrus, both self winding, and a French watch I can’t quite make out the name on. The first four watches on the left seem to run well. The rest won’t run.

    hiefetz17, that Waltham was made well after the original company went out of business completely around 1957. they are generally Swiss made movements. The serial number list will do you no good. someone will have to identify the movement maker for you to get any parts. Based on the style, I would say sometime in the 1960's maybe early 70's.
