    Re: Need help identifying this Swiss ALSTA Incabloc

    ANY watch MAY have been worn by military personnel. Military ISSUED watches will be marked as such OR there will be NO way to identify them as ISSUED.

    Over the years I've collected all sorts of movements and "project" watches ... mainly inexpensive vintage pieces.

    These days I've widened my gaze to include modern pieces (including quartz with analog or analog + digital displays) but with those I'm generally looking for models in solid steel cases.

    It's ye ol' Adolf Schild Cal. AS 1287 (or 1497):

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: AS 1287

    ...or the AS 1255 or AS 1294 or AS 1494 if it is a little larger (11.5''').

    Alsta was the brand name of the Alstater Watch Co of New York

    Mikrolisk - was Feines für die Tasche... - Das Informationsportal rund um die Taschenuhr!

    The movement is marked AOX which is the US Import/Swiss Export code for Alstater
