    Interesting ? Or ... Not ? Or.... Maybe ? - haven't anything like this...

    Okay - an interesting watch to say the least - hallmarked okay 18ct I guess - pin set so teens ? Quite ornate case - dial original ? Not sure - I'll let the movement experts comment on this movement.....cheers, Scott

    EDIT - I never seem to get thread titles correct - is it auto edit ? I'm a bad typist ? I'm an idiot ? Not sure but once written it seems they can't be edited...

    PS - saw this and just had to post it...

    I've seen quite a few like that - but not in gold and as pocket watches, not wrist watches. Cylindre escapement, decorative but not too up market - what we would call a Bauerntaschenuhr (farmer's pocket watch) in Germany. Definitely a conversion to wrist watch.

    To edit titles just go into Advanced - and you can do it there.

    Interesting watch btw.

    Thanks Marrick - I'm always on my phone so not sure I can use advanced - the thing I still find odd is the file size upload restriction on the desktop - which isn't on the phone, so that pushes me toward using my phone more.

    I didn't realise that this was a pocket conversion - so I'm always indebted to the lessons learned on the vintage forum! Cheers, Scott

    The ones in my collection for this style of wrist watch (not in gold and not conversions) date to either pre war or a few years post war so I'd agree with your dating.

    Thanks Mirius - I was only guessing because it's pin set and I haven't seen very many watches that are pin set after maybe mid-20s ? Cheers from roughly 4 miles away ! Maybe sometime out two Exactus Chronos need to cop a pint together, I guess we could go along with the watches, regards, Scott

    Post 1920 pin set is pretty rare so it's a good dating benchmark. I think those two watches ought to be reunited over a pint.
