    Sorry, I can't - don't have one! But wouldn't mind having one one day. I like the car, though (Koenigsegg) - and my son would certainly do so as well!

    Hi, everyone. I just bought my first vintage watch and looking some information about it. It is Dom Watch also, but slightly different. Here are some images and I am hoping you guys could perhaps know some history, value and other information about it ? Age of it and so on. Tried to google for one like that but no luck so far to find just the same. I know it has Landeron 51 and it should be rose gold ! Name:  4b6db651d412cb978e2cf3b824f70-orig.jpg

    Welcome to Watchuseek. As a Chronographe Suisse, it can only be post WWII, which is further supported by the fact that "Dom Watch" was apparently registered in summer 1945. The general style and lack of shockproofing suggests the 1950s.

    Re: Chronographe suisse the forgoten watch, post yours to

    I'm a fan of these watches and I have to admit jojo that is a beautiful watch. Nowadays, it's very hard to come by these watches in such good condition, and if you do they probably cost quite a bit of money.

    I believe I read somewhere that usually these had gold plated cases, and were destined for tourists that would visit, primarily Switzerland, because they would not be executed in the highest regard, or, the overall quality of the watch wouldn't be comparable to other (equally expensive nowadays) brands.

    I have a feeling though, that since quite a handful did survive up until today, perhaps the lower quality that they speak of was actually in regards to the case, case material or various finishing touches that would not necessarily make it a bad watch in the end. I believe they were also supposed to be cheap when they got out.

    I have a Thoresen which is actually by Orator which looks just like the watch shown here. Are they actually the same?

    Post some pictures and we'll let you know what we think. Although in those days, a lot of watches looked broadly like each other so the similarity may well be coincidental.....

    From what I know you will encounter the "original" Chronograph Suisse and various other brands. On the outside they'll all look the same, but I'm not sure about the movements.

    I believe they used to make watches for various other companies as well which would, afterwards, just apply their own brand.

    Here is mine! Took delivery today, solid 18K with a gold clad bracelet. Almost too much bling for some places.
