    comments/opinion: vintage Eberhard chronograph

    To the experts,

    Would anyone of you be so kind to comment on the following watch I came across. Will be greatly appreciated! Also if someone would venture an opinion on the value please.

    1. does the watch case, mechanism(Eberhardt&Co. nr 176666) and face look genuine to you?
    2. the strap is obvious an ordinary new strap.
    3. the watch is in working condition.
    4. the face looks in too good condition to be original (just my layman's opinion) although I was assured that it was original.
    5. the inside of the back of the case has got a lot of faint letters/numerals which I could not photograph properly. I think someone tried to polish the inside of the back and that made some of the writing difficult to read apart from the obvious ones you will see in the photo's
    6. the period more or less when the watch was manufactured.

    Good to be back after some time!

    1920s, maybe early 1930s. The movement looks correct. It's no surprise that the dial looks like new, and it won't really age, as it's enamel (as opposed to ordinary painted metal ones).

    Amazing watch in an excellent state! I would also say 1920s or early 1930s. There are two similar watches in Brunner/Pfeiffer-Belli and the first has a similar (but not identical) case and is from the 1920s. The second has a rather more modern case and an identical dial to yours and is from 1935. Both watches are monopoussoir and the second one has a 15''' Valjoux 22GH movement. Yours however, will be different (the Valjoux 22GH is not a correct match) and I suspect that it might even be an early Landeron movement inside - the Landeron 9 (not too far down this page here: Uhrenhersteller "L") is a reasonable match.

    Here is the type of research I would do to figure out an approximate value using eBay to find comps.

    - A similar watch, but in a plated case recently sold for about $1350
    - An example in an 18k case (with a desirable snail dial that has a hairline crack) has been offered at $1875 for 3 days but has not yet sold.
    - Another example is currently for auction on eBay (in a silver case). The auction ends next Saturday if you would like to follow it.

    Well, if you like it, make him an offer. We can't buy it for you.

    on closer inspection it seems there may be a hairline crack in the dial running from the edge of the dial to the left of the 55 and 11 and then on towards the right of the 10. will check it out properly.
