    Old stopwatch Union Ancre ID

    Hallo,
    I have this old stopwatch and was wondering if anyone could give me some info on it. (see photos)
    It says on the clock Union Ancre, but nothing else. On 2 of the lids there is a serial number. On the clock works it self it says K R A S.
    I hope someone can help me, also if someone know the value.

    Might have been made for the UK market. The markings are actually "FARS" and stand for "Fast" (or "Avance" in french) and "Slow" (or "Retard" in french). The main "Union" I know is Union Glashütte and since this has a 3/4 plate, this might be by them. In which case, the markings should probably be V ("Vor") and N ("Nach").

    Hallo. Thank you for answering. I've been in contact with Union Glashutte and they are not the makers. Do you know any other Union Ancre makers? Do you have any ideas about how old it is?

    There are quite a few other "Unions" - go to Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index and search for that word to get a list. Sadly, there isn't a "Union Ancre" among them.....
