Hi everyone, I'm new to the game of collecting watches and I just came back from my very first antique show today on search of some watches. Lots to see, but sadly, as I am new to watches, there were a lot of names I didn't know so I stayed away from them.
I did however pick up these two! Both wind-ups, one is a Waltham that reads "intrabloc 17 jewels" on the face, the other is a Waldon that reads "shock absorber antimagnetic". I know Waltham, but I didn't know Waldon (after searching the internet, I still couldn't find anything on the company). I have to admit I bought the Waldon based primarily on looks. I love the look of an old Military type watch. I hope that you guys can see the pictures well enough to see all the details..apologies that I am not the best photographer.
Unfortunately, I couldn't muscle the back off the Waldon and I don't have the correct tools to be able to.
Anyways, please share with me any info you might have on these two watches. I would really like to know when they are from, etc. As you might be able to tell, I am very excited with my purchases.
Also, if anyone has some tips as to how to clean up the Waldon, they would be greatly appreciated.
