  1. I'm sorry to tell you this, but it's a Chinese fake. These clocks/watches are made by the tenthousands nowadays and they all have that same Chinese movement. There's nothing Swiss on this watch. The...
  2. It says shock -resisitant on the dial so it's from the 1950's and forward.
  3. The case was made in England and the movement was made in Switzerland.
  4. Huit Rubis is French and means Eight Jewels. You can see them on your pictures as the red "bearings". There are 4 of them on the balance staff. (two bearing jewels and two cover jewels) And there...
  5. It looks a lot like one of my vintage Enicar watches. It looks like it has the same case.

  11. I am sorry to say this, but your watch is made long after WW II. They date from the 1980's on forward and are made for tourists. They come in many different varieties and with many different backs. ...
  12. It's a Swiss pin-lever escapement from Baumgartner.
  13. It has a common Chinese movement in it. These movements can be found in several (new) pocketwatches. These movements can run very good. It is not an antique watch but it's a nice looking watch.
  14. The anti-shock system was commercialized from the 1950's onwards. So the pocket watch is not very very old. It's a pretty rare piece though. I have never seen a pocket watch like yours. The Oris fac...
  15. Very pretty. never seen anything like it. Do you also have a picture of the dial ?
  16. Remontoir means nothing more than stemwinding. Before that watches should be wound with a key. If you have a clear picture of the movement, maybe we can help you identify your watch. The movement is...
  17. The engine is a so called Bike Bug. See also http://www.bikebug.net/
  18. A clear picture of the movement would be very helpfull.
  19. This is a German watch made by the Thomas Haller company. Thomas Haller joined with the famous Junghans company and the Bravo brand was registered on March, 29 in 1905. The movement is a Haller move...
  20. It looks to be having a Baumgartner or Ebosa movement. I think it's a 1930's watch. It looks good and for a very cheap movement it's very accurate.
  21. Engorsele is an (East) German UMF Ruhla watch with a different name on it.
  22. What yu have is an Hebdomas with 8 day movement. Most watches had the be wound up every day and the Hebdomas from Switzerland was the first watch that could run up to 8 days. They are still making the...
  23. Yep it's that famous Chinese movement inside. This watch has nothing to do with Switzerland. I have one with a HMT movement from India and it says Roskopf on the dial.
  24. The name Robanne was registered April 3th, 1957 in Washington DC. http://www.mikrolisk.de/show.php?site=280#sucheMarker

  30. Maybe you can send an e-mail with pictures to the factory. They still exsist and make high end watches. http://www.iwc.com/en/
  31. I don't think that the wrist band belongs to the watch because the lugs on the watch are much wider than the band. A nice leather strap will look very handsome on this watch, I think. There were a ...
  32. This watch is made by Louis Shorer in a town in Switzerland that is called Le Chauxs-de-Fonds. It's a town were many watch factorys were based, and still are. The name was registered on november 25...

  42. Normally I take pictures with a photocamera, not with a phone :)
  43. The hairspring is bend on the end so it doesn't have effect on the running of the movement.
  44. It looks a bit like a Smiths Empire movement. Do you have to push the crown to set the time ?
  45. UMF stands for Uhren & Maschinen Fabrik (Watch & Machine Factory) and was based in Ruhla wich was later East Germany. If you search for Ruhla watches you can probably found out more.
  46. It's definitely NOT real. It's a Chinese watch and is brand new. Sorry
  47. A great watch, but (correct me if I'm wrong) it looks like the minute hand is flipped upside down.
