    There seem to be zero replies so I'll have a stab. Unfortunately, one can't say much without movement pictures but it seems that both watches are key wound rather than by crown. They would therefore be almost certainly pre 1900 so that your estimate of up to 1934 is too recent.

    Crikey! Both of them have a similar bridge structure and one more characteristic of 1830-1870 Swiss watches. So, your age estimate may have to be put back even further. Both are cylindre escapement watches, which also fits. Very unlikely that you will get more information than that - the brands are unknown and the movements were probably generic and made at least partly in the cottage industry (i.e. made by many farmers in parts and put together by an end assmbler). You might get a better estimate on age if you post pictures of the hallmarks on the cases - but others here will tell you more about those; it's definitely not my special field.
