• 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!

Valuable or not????

Hello everybody. I need an opinion. I received this watch and I don't know if I should keep it or sell it. I would be interested in restoring it, but I don't know anything about it anymore. Can you help me with some details about these watches? Valuable or not:???:?

Hi Gerorginio , and wellcome to this message board! Your pics show a good quality swiss 15jewel anchor movement encased in a steel/gun metall case with a display crystal instead of a cuvette made IMO at the beginning of the 20th century and retailed by the Henry Moser company which specialized in exports of quality watches to eastern Europe , especially to Russia. The case has suffered from corosion , but not too badly . It would need a full professional service before taken in everydays use which will cost about what this watch is worth. OTOH will this watch -once serviced- provide a timekeeping well sufficient to catch a bus or attend a meeting.The display dust cover is a nice feature.I´d keep it.
Best regards
Burkhard
