    Help wanted: salvage store find

    Today I found 3 watches at a salvage store.

    This Lasita. (non running)


    Looks like an 80's watch to me. Am I correct in the period?

    This Ruhla. (badly running and after some tinkering I seem to have disconnected the enchapment )


    This one looks old. 50's, 60's? At least it's post WW2.

    And this Timex. (reguarly stopping until I fitted it with a strap and started to wear it)


    Also looks 80's to me, but could be late 70's.

    Can anybody help me identifying the watches. I already found the Ruhla on a website, but the others I can't find. The Lasita seems to be a Dutch brand with Swiss movement. Timex is still alive, but I can't find the model.

    Also the Timex puzzles me. I can't find a way to set the date. When pulling the stem I don't feel a notch to just set day and/or date, but it just goes out and you can set the hands. Do I really need to set the date/date via the hands. (and thus have to set it until I find a Tuesday 4th combination?)
    ... Time line?! This is no time to argue about time! We don't have the time.
    ... Time is a figment of your imagination, lunchtime doubly so

    The Timex date and day set possibilities:

    - Crown has two positions when pulled one is for time set, the other for day and date with clock wise and counterclockwise turns.
    - Date, might be quick set( generally 20.30 to 24.00 oclock ), day by crown.
    Trying to find a Tue 4 th combination shows lose cronw, can not be :)

    This means I still have a repair for this watch, next to the occasional freeze. The crown had only working 1 position and that's for the hands.
