    Hudson\Pierpont Alarm Watch

    This was one of my last second bid watches. Paid less than a meal at a fast food place for it. Had little to nothing to go on. No movement pics. Broken band. Non running I assumed. Heck...you see what I saw...

    So it was a risk and it arrived yesterday. The band was an interesting thing to figure out how it attached. It was missing a pin that held the band to the end link. I thought that it would have been woven into the end some how...nope...just a pin. So after I got the band sorted I turned to replacing the crystal. It needs one with a reflector ring I believe but that will take more hunting. I just wanted a good crystal on instead of one with a giant hole in it.

    I pulled the crown for the alarm at 2...came out stem and all..... dang it. Ok time to open it up so I opened it and man that movement looked familiar. Turns out that the screw just needed to be tightened to hold in the stem and crown. Wound and set the alarm them moved the hands and....buzzzzz. Awesome alarm works. Rest of the movement...almost fully wound and the balance ticked as the alarm hammer buzzed away. Ok...good balance. Took the majority of the movement apart and cleaned it up some. Bit of oil on the pivots....ticking away.

    So I started researching "Hudson" and "Pieront". Mikrolisk has nothing linking the two names.

    Hudson Itraco Watch Co. Ltd. Oberrieden-Zürich und Zollikon, Schweiz; registriert am 23.9.1963
    Hudson Vve. de Louis Goering Uhrwerke, Gehäuse; La Chaux-de-Fonds, Schweiz; registriert am 24.10.1903
    Hudson Marcel Jeanbourquin & Cie. La Chaux-de-Fonds, Schweiz

    Piermont Sauter Freres & Cie. SA / Pierpont Watch Co. Clocks, clock parts; Biel, Switzerland
    Pierpont Sauter Freres & Cie. SA / Pierpont Watch Co. Clocks, clock movements, clock parts; Biel, Switzerland; registered on 8.2.1918


    The case back is also marked for Pierpont so the case and movement belong together and the dial is of the right age too with radium. So I think Hudson, in this case, was a jewelry store brand name or private label. The other part that is a mystery are the numbers between the lugs. I suspect a ref 2008 and a serial 356852.

    One final mystery. The import 3 digit code on the movement is "AYQ" and I can't find that code listed anywhere.

    That's an AS 1475 movement I think. I have one. My research showed that the movement was used in some Vulcain Crickets, and even in some older Tudor alarm watches. Nice piece.
