    Job lot.2 – Lusina, Felca

    Job lot story, part 2…

    Also in the lot are two watches with engraving, variously TW, but one a Lusina is further engraved from 'Lord and Lady Knollys, Bermuda, 1941-1943.' Knollys was the governor of Bermuda at the time. Yet again, one gets caught up in the should I, shouldn't I conundrum. The movement on this Lusina is shown here (I haven't taken the time to track it down yet), but the main case is corroded (back is SS and perfect)... should I, shouldn't I send this off?

    And this Felca was in there, too. I love the dial and I'm certain that it would clean up nicely. The ETA 1093 ticks and so probably just needs a minor service. But mein Gott im Himmel just look at those lugs!!! A salutary tale, here. Anyone reading this that likes expanding bracelets, feast your eyes on this mess. Uggh. This is what happens to lugs with those blinking things. But…should I, shouldn't I send this off for repair?

    Thoughts?

    Maybe this case is a good one for you? Looks around the same size, it's yours if you want it.

    LUSINA was the Pamm Freres, Montres Lusina, SARL, Geneve.

    Listed 1924 (without Lusina), in 1935-1940 it became the LUSINA WATCH, PAMM FRERES

    Re: Job lot.2 – Lusina, Felca

    I think that lugs and case wise, he was talking more about the Felca.....

    As for the Felca, it can be repaired but it probably won't be economic. There was an article in a German watch magazine some years ago on a company specialising in repairing bust cases (lugs broken off and that sort of thing) so I know it can be done. But Felca is probably not prestigious enough to make it worth while. I would look for a substitute case on fleabay.....

    Not so Hartmut, he was talking about both!

    The movement on this Lusina is shown here (I haven't taken the time to track it down yet), but the main case is corroded (back is SS and perfect)... should I, shouldn't I send this off?

    Oh, I see. I was concentrating more on the lug problem (those in the Lusina are in sufficient order). The Felca lugs can be repaired at a cost by the specialists, the scratches on the Lusina would probably require different specialists and a different sort of job. But that would also not be economical, I'm afraid.....

    As to the lugs on the Felca… the word from the man is that it would cost $90/£55 to sort out. Of course, a suitable case would be the easier course of action. And cheaper. Back to fleabay, I guess.
