1940's and 1950-50's Ladies Wittnauer Help Needed
These two watches belonged to my Grandmother who has since passed away. I am trying to find out possible production date or more information for my Mother. Any WIS knowledge from here would be a BIG help. Sorry the pictures are not great. Any information about these two watches and their history is a great help.
Watch (1) 1940's ??? It has a KO looking marking with VII VIII on the case size. 18 K and Platinum. Number 41578. 17 Jewel MIDO UNITED stamped on the movement. Not working
Wittenauer (Possible 1950's - 1960's) - amazing this handwind still keeps perfect time after all of these years. Description on case 263419 with the numbers 407 under it. 14K / 17 jewel Wittenauer movement. Swiss at the bottom.

we don't do evaluations here, cf. stickies on top. But you need not worry
about the value: For ladies watches usually the material value applies - if
running one buck more, if not one buck less.
Better keep them for sentimental reasons, and if you want to have the
Mido running again, there is no problem: The movement is an FHF 59
something like the Volkswagen (or Ford T) among the midget movements.
And as many watches are butchered for their scrap value, it is easy to find
a running movement, either as replacement or as donor for all eventually

that's probably a . . . .
W Tx thing. No need to look at the road signs when you can already see the next town you are going to - 20 some miles up the road. e

And if you don't like the weather just wait a few hours for it to change. Great Texas wisdom can apply even here. Thanks again -e-
