    Identification of vintage watches

    Hi WUS,

    I have picked up these two beauties, but apart from reading them and trying to do some research, I couldnt really find info on these.

    1. Renis Geneve

    25 jewels
    Antimagnetic
    Incabloc
    Swiss Made
    Automatic

    Perfectly working.


    Please dont even comment the strap on it, I will change it asap if this watch worth anything. On its back it has some issuing number but cant really read it. It has a domed crystal and the whole watch feels and looks like quality to me, but then again I am new to this watch business.

    2. Delbana

    17 jewels
    Waterproof
    Perfectly working

    Any of you kind knowledgable fellow watch owners have any info on this beauty ? Like movement , worth.. Etc.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Well, we won't have any idea about the movements, until we see them. Both will most likely have generic movements- the Delbana probably something by Felsa or Venus, the Renis- most likely ETA or AS.
    No valuations in this forum- sorry.

    For any inquiries regarding vintage Doxa watches, please read the highlighted text in my vintage Doxa thread. Sorry, but I will not respond to PMs on the matter.

    Can You show the strap of Renis. I suspect it could be more "worth" than those watches themself :)

    By worth I meant is it "worth" restoring it and putting a new strap on it or it would cost as much as the watch itself. Also which would be the "better" watch.

    I do not know what You mean by "restoring" but servicing and cleanin them will cost not as much but more than the watches
