    CHRONOMETRE IVERIA WATCH?

    Who can tell me something about this clock? I got them from my father. But he could tell me anything about this clock. The clock works.

    Very nice watch with a solid gold 14kt case. I do not recognize the hallmark but someone will. It will tell us where the case was made. We need a picture of the movement (insides) to say much more.

    We would call this an heirloom watch since it came from your father. Wonderful!!

    My complete guess as to date is the 1930's or 1940's. But the movement picture will give us a better guess.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    One picture should do it (so I deleted the other post). Looks like the old ETA 735 or derivative (Picture 3 in the link):

    On a movement of that type, it's not that difficult. The shape is so characteristic. Oh, and I partly cheated - I have a Laco with practically the same movement (ETA 765) from the thirties or forties that belonged to my granddad.....

    My elephantine memory also helps a little.

    Dear Hartmut,

    Since Laco had with Durowe an own movement factory, I'd expect one of these pretty similar movements:
    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Laco 580 (Durowe F)
    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Laco 550 (Durowe 7.75x11''')
    More likely the fist if the watch is from the 30s.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft

    'Fraid not - there is an ETA stamp under the dial! Plus the "765".....
