    Can anyone give me an idea when this Wyler watch was made?

    Hi Gang,

    I just obtained this cool radial dial Wyler and am wondering if anyone can narrow down when it was made. It has a bumper automatic with hand winding. It looks to be from the 30s or 40s but can anyone narrow it down any further? Thanks.

    Hi,

    In a quick glance I'd say early to mid-1940s from the dial and hands design. If you have a pic of the movement we could say more ;)

    I am reluctant to open the case because it is front loaded and has that special Wyler bezel set-up. I don't know it is actually difficult or simple to open, but it has been serviced within the last 2 years and I would rather not take the thing out and expose it to unnecessary dust etc.

    If you know who has serviced it, you should find out what movement is in there.

    Don't we already have a thread asking this exact question about the same watch?

    Your right Dan, but that one seemed to veer off track very quickly :)

    Exactly. And I must say that the OP's original question was perfectly sensible and the joke seems to have been drawn out a little until it was rather thin.....

    Normally, I'd amalgamate the two threads. This time, I will just close the original one and hope that this one gathers some more sensible and informative replies. I will also cross-link to this one.

    OK, I did try to give a serious answer in that first thread.

    Thank you Hartmut. I was rather starting to get frustrated. I was really hoping to get some good education on Wyler as it seems to be a very cool company with great history and innovations.
