    Can someone help with dating these watches?

    I recently purchased a job lot of watches on Ebay and I am going to re-sell them through my Etsy shop. I want to describe them as accurately as possible including what decade they would have been made. I've done some internet research but am struggling with a few of them. If anyone knows what decade I can date these to it would be much appreciated!!

    I should have mentioned, they're all mechanical.

    Not easy to give descriptions of watches for sale without movement identification, metal composition, size, etc....

    They seem to have some age to them, but many of them have a fairly generic style that could span a couple of decades, so I wouldn't want to venture an opinion just based on those photos. By the way, it would be helpful to show photos with more-watch, less tree-branch.

    As with any commercial business venture it is always best to engage the services of a qualified professional should you require technical expertise outside of your own area of experience and knowledge.

    To that end: Above you will find a sticky with links to locating watchmakers in many parts of the world.

    Good luck with your enterprise.

    Thanks all! Yes, I think a trip to a local horologist is in order!
