I received two old watches from my deceased grandfather who bought them in the sixties, presumably. Now I'm looking for information about the manufacturers as well as the used movements.
Also, I'd be thankful for suggestions wheater a refurbishing is recommendable or not. They have alarm functionality: when the hour hand reaches the position of the small hand, the clocks whirr. It sounds strange -- like an early form of vibration alarm used by today's smartphones...
Both of them were not worn for the last 30 years. I winded them up carefully and both of them seem to work well. I did not check if they hold the time.
Attached to this post, you can find some photos of them. I not trust myself to open them appropriately, so I cannot offer you photos of the movements. Sorry.
1st watch: ARSA (Auguste Reymond?) Precision alertic. Diameter: 35mm
4 Hands: Hour, minute, second, alarm indicator. Date field.
Backside inscription: "Swiss made - waterproof - stainless steel back - antimagnetic - incabloc". Serial number: 42789.
2nd watch: Golana Alertic. Diameter: 34mm
Dial: Golana Alertic Shockproof 21 Jewels. Hands just like above. Date field.
Backside reads as "Stainless steel back - Swiss made - waterproof - shock protected - antimagnetic".
Thanks a lot for your effort.
