Thanks to a grandmother who is cleaning out the clutter, I have acquired two new [to me of course] watches. One, a Waltham that belonged to my dad as a teen. The other is a Vulcain. I will admit to having never heard of Vulcain before clapping eyes on this one.
Here are a few pics I snapped for reference purposes.
There are no serial numbers on the case back, and the face only reads "Vulcain Since 1858" "17 Jewels", and "Swiss Made". I don't own a case opener, so I haven't been able to look inside.
I wound it and it started ticking away, keeping an eye on it to see how good of time it keeps.
35mm wide [crown included]
40mm lug to lug
17mm lug width
Do I think this is a gold mine or particularly valuable? No. But I do think it's a cool looking watch, so I may keep it if the resale value isn't overly impressive.
Thanks in advance for any dating or other bits of info, it's appreciated!
