    These are two flea market finds from this morning. $50 worth.

    Waltham Riverside 19 jewels , adjusted 5 positions.

    Admiral , 15 jewels , ref.783. I know Tacy (Cyma & Tavannes) made Admiral watches but I've never seen a movement like ths one. If you have information on this movement , Please let me know.

    If I'm right, the Waltham was made in 1913. A beautiful railroad watch.

    Thanks guys. I guess I was lucky. I also found a gold ring ($2),which paid off the watches. I've been searching for info on the "Admiral"..nothing yet. Cheers
