Visiting my parents this week, my dad just showed me these two watches he has but never wears because they are in various states of disrepair. Thought you guys might be interested.
If anyone has any information about either of these two watches I would very much appreciate any knowledge you might have about the movements etc. I don’t have the tools to open the cases or I would include pictures of that as well.
The first is a Hamilton from the late 1950s. From the old Hamilton catalogs I believe it is the “Thin-o-matic” model (?) Note the inscription on the back from my mom.
The second is a Girard Perregeaux. Maybe the “Gyromatic” model? Missing the crown.
He had sent these for repair but they got returned with a note saying that parts are unavailable. I will take them to my (third generation) watchmaker who has cabinets and cabinets of old parts to see if he can repair them for him.
