    Grandmothers Watches

    My grandmother passed away last week and she left me 2 of her watches. I was trying to find out more about them since I'm not entirely sure how to make them work or what to do with them. One is a Lucien Piccard. It has gemstones in a hinged cover. I took pics of the inside as well. The other watch only say Incabloc on the face. The insides look almost exactly the same as the other, except it says Empire Watch Co instead of Lucien Piccard. There is a bunch of writing on the inside and the only thing I can identify is, maybe, 1952. Any, and all insight would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you for your help!

    Hi and welcome
    Sorry your loss.
    Firstly the scratches inside the case are repairers marks, and its obvious your grandmother had the watches regularly serviced and repaired.

    Both watches are 14k gold, so your grandmother had good taste.
    Apart from sentimental value, the INCABLOC is probably only worth the gold weight, the Lucien Picard, although probably not worth much more than its weight in gold, is a pretty and unusual watch to keep and wear.

    Enjoy

    Presuming that both movements are identical, you have two movements from the Adolf Schild Cal. AS 976 family:

    If you post a picture of the other one, we can confirm that (sometimes, slight details distinguish wholly unrelated movements).
