    Anker

    surfing Ebay...appears to be a well preserved Anker. The different angles suggest the crystal could use some polywatch.

    Re: Anker

    Not sure you're supposed to make topics about Ebay listings like this?

    If it is your own watch and strap, you can post it in the sales section.

    Re: Anker

    These are not mine. These are nice affordable vintage watches I've noticed that others might like. Just like new watches and their photos from manufacturers are discussed in Public and Affordable, etc. So no, I'm not aware you can only discuss watches you own. Enjoy.

    Re: Anker

    Nevertheless, I have removed some, ehrm, sensitive information that didn't really comply with forum rules and guidelines. I should add that the watch in question, although optically quite well preserved, has a cheap pin lever movement, was "a dime a dozen" even when it came out and is therefore not terribly valuable or sought after these days.

    Re: Anker

    So what if they are affordable - cheap? You have your expensive vintage threads, we have our affordable vintage. There's room for both, imo. There is no sensitive information only source information and public price in case someone is interested. People can't just run to a manufacturer's site and find one of thousands of the same new model. And from what I see the dials of the Ankers and Ruhlas of the world hold up as good/better than much more expensive watches.

    The thing about Anker brand (and Meister Anker) is that the watches were sourced from such a wide range of manufacturers that you can't really judge one by looking at another. They each need to be judged on their own merits.

    Re: Anker

    Old topic, but here's an Anker I saw tonight while watching an episode of "The Outer Limits" from 1963.

    Perhaps some might find it interesting.

    Re: Anker

    Hi Everyone, I know this is an old thread but I am new here and new to the watch enthusiast game. I have just started colecting some watches and descided to go through my father and grand fathers' watch collection that I have been holding on to for quite some years now. There exists a Bulova, Goldwyn, Junghans of the 50s to the 70s, but the uncommon Anker watch from my grandfathers intrigues me the most. My Grandfather was in the Mountain Division German army in WWII. The Anker watch has a small hand inscription on the back that says "Edelitahe Boden" (Nobel Soil). Can this watch be one that he wore during the war? Name:  IMG_0517.JPG

    Re: Anker

    That watch could well have been worn in the war, but it definitely isn't an official "military" (as in: issued by the army) watch. The case back states "Edelstahl" which is German for "stainless steel". The movement is by the German movement maker Bifora (Bidlingmayer Formankerwerke):
