    Smile My Latest Vintage Buys

    Hi
    Here is a bunch of Vintage watches I just Purchased of EBAY, except for the ladies ORIS, I found that in a draw and it runs but needs some love.
    All the other watches run well and keep time.

    Can someone please confirm that the Unicorn is a Rolex ?

    ORIS Ladies
    UNICORN Ladies
    TAG HEUER Automatic Series 2000 Mens
    WESTCLOX DAX Pocket Watch

    Cheers

    Probably not. See: https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthr...hlight=unicorn

    Unicorn was a brand used by Rolex up to about 1933. Your watch is later than that. A Schild made complete watches using the brand name Unicorn. Can you see a mark under the balance at all?

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    RW mark = Rodi & Wienenberger. See http://www.mikrolisk.de/show.php/280/letter_R

    They will have made the case and strap, not the movement.

    Hi Yes that is the mark

    All I Can see is the movement number under the balance 1012

    Pretty sure this is the movement 3rd pic down Circa 1936-1960
