    Picture ***Oldtimers Archive & Vintage Watches Eye Candy***


    Why not have an old-timers and vintage wrist watches archive here
    ? I know we post monthly in WRUW threads, but would be lovely if we post our vintage timepieces under one roof here in f11 forum.

    Lets do it with some basic information added so it can be also a learning tool for newcomers and cross brand information for all of us. I believe we have the largest range within other subforums with centuries old history, vintage wrist and pocket watches are the core of enthusiasts and collectors.

    I
    never saw a person who owns only one vintage watch:) I know I am not alone, one can fulfill here half dozen of pages.

    Here we go, let it come:

    My first thought when you said "oldtimers" was to show my oldest time-keeper, so I am taking that approach:

    This is a Swiss bar movement from the 1830-1850s range. The roman numerals are a rose gold color making for a really beautiful watch.

    Cheers,

    Kind of up & down chrono style with day & date, powered by Venus 214, never saw this configuration before aquiring this timepiece. The brand ' Azhar ' looks like registered in 1953 Swiss but did not see many examples, probably vanished within many generic makes.

    Great thread idea, so let's keep it going!

    This was my Dad's watch which he picked up in an auction and wore for about 20 years before it broke and gave it to me. He wears a quartz Seiko now.

    1955 Omega Constellation automatic (in need of some restoration)
    17 jewels Caliber 354 "bumper" automatic movement.

    Very good idea! My Hanhart Family is a part of german watch history. A few years ago Hanhart decided to move the wristwatch production from Germany to Switzerland.

    The picures show chronographs from 1940 Cal. 40 to 1957 Cal. 42 to 1996 Cal. Valjoux 7760. The stopwatch was made for the Luftwaffe early 1940's.



    Best regards
