    Need information on a DUMAI pocket watch

    Hi, I picked up this pocket watch at flea market today. Several hours of research and still nothing on DUMAI history or this watch potential value. Anyone? It has borderline erotic enamel paintings. Thanks

    Hi and welcome.

    I doubt the pictures are what is termed "miniature enamel"
    This is a modern copy watch, dial is metal as I suspect the pictures are just painted metal.
    Value? Probably what you paid for it minus a few bucks

    Adam s right and you can see beyond the balance a Unitas sign and a number. Not complete on the pcture but its probably this family out of the 1980 ties

    Thank you Adam and Silke. I appreciate you taking the time to research and respond. For some reason, finding info/knowing the true value of a vintage timepiece is a relief.



    Kind regards Jonathan

    These Unitas movements are quite popular with the wristwatch crowd these days. Unitas was the maker of some of the most robust pocket watch movements in the post-WW2 market, and when they got absorbed into ETA during the quartz crisis, their pocket watch caliber remained and continues to be produced as the ETA 6497/8. With the modern aesthetic being huge wristwatches, the caliber saw a resurgence in recent years, which has tended to drive up the prices of other Unitas calibers.
