    Question Any Information of "BELCA" brand

    Hi everybody,

    I came across a brand name "BELCA". My friend owned one and it looks like Rolex at the first glance, the dial is flowery therefore i can't read the print on the dial at all. On the other hand, the clasps also looks like Rolex clasps. According to my friend it cost about USD500+ and it is not popular in Asia.

    On the other hand, I could not find any further info from internet of the brand except one website that does a restoration on a BELCA watch (looks like vintage).

    Help! can anyone comment on the this brand? I am very curious to find out more. Thanks!

    Sorry - can't find anything about Belca. The nearest I could find was Belga - an old french brand.

    Hi Marrick,

    Please find the website that "touches" something on the brand. Hope it is helpful.

    Well that one has an AS movement. A Schild was a major supplier of movements to many small - and some large - watch companies. It is possible that Belca was only around for a short time, and that few of their watches survive. There are a lot of watch brands that we can't find any information on.

    The movement looks like an AS 1130 - or variant - which would place it (probably) in the 1950's.

    Perhaps someone else has more information.
