    Charles Nicolet Tramelan: Info needed

    Hello,

    I recently saw this Charles Nicolet watch on ebay:

    I've been doing some research and couldn't find much about it. Could someone tell me the history of the watch and the movement? The seller said he has not had it serviced for a few years, so would it be easy to find parts for it?

    Welcome to Watchuseek! Charles Nicolet of Tramelan were a fairly respectable maker. The movement in your watch is by the generic movement maker Adolf Schild of Grenchen:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: AS 984

    ...(or something from that family of movements anyway) and seems to have been either tampered with or is not in the best of states: the geartrain bridge is different or has lost its rhodium plating and shows the brass shining through. Nevertheless, if it still runs and only runs badly, it may well just need a service (disassembly , clean, lubrication, reassembly and adjustment) without parts replacement. Even if it requires parts replacement, if you can't find parts, you will definitely find a donor movement, although looking for one can be a little bit of a pain.
