This beautifull watch was my great grandmothers and came to me as inheritance with other items of equal beauty. This watch must have been made for very skinny ladys as the band fits my wrist which is 15 cm in circumfernce. I know very little about the history of the watch and would love to know more. It is a ORIS wind-up watch with opal on the face and yes it still works and keeps great time sitting protected in my drawer. If you could help me find out more about the history i would be very greatful.

    I recognise the bracelet on that watch. If you have a look at mine it is the same brand and same bracelet but the watch faces are different. It looks as though your bracelet was shortened at some time so maybe if you can find another one you can add length to it. I can see from the photo it looks like yours has 7 circles on each side (when I was a child I called them daisies). My bracelet has 9 on each side.

    I have exactly the same watch that I found in an old jewellery box last week. It was given to me for my 7th birthday many years ago. However, mine doesn't have a lovely bracelet. As a child, it was more appropriate to have a leather watch band. In its original state, mine is still keeping great time but I can only adjust the time by going forward. To go back enables the wind up toggle to be unscrewed. After 57 years I cannot believe that it still works.
