    Pics of vintage watches left to me...

    Ive taken pics of all 7 old watches left to me..be interested to hear thoughts on them... I dont really have any interest in pocket watches but the cyma is engraved with my grandfathers initials and 25th Dec 1938.. He died in 1951.. Dont know why but i like the titan but the glass is badly sctatched... I polished up the bulova... Guess it was my grandmothers ... Not a mark on the case but the face needs cleaned up.. Dont see a name on the other brassy coloured watch except Peri? English made 9ct on the strap...

    all the wristwatches work..havent tried the pocket watches yet...

    Nice, the CYMA is great and worth getting serviced and then you can wear it

    Thanks.. I like it plus i have really skinny wrists and big watches look stupid on me.. For day to day i have recently bought a 38mm christopher ward trident and the other watch i wear a lot is a ebel sportwave i bought new 15/16 years ago... Lots of modern watches are huge .. And a bit showey offey for me...

    Here's some info about the Waltham:

    As to the Titan, here are Mikrolisk results for that:

    Identifying the PW with the black dial will require more pictures- pictures of both sides of the outer back cover and the case back, and the movement, of course.

    For any inquiries regarding vintage Doxa watches, please read the highlighted text in my vintage Doxa thread. Sorry, but I will not respond to PMs on the matter.

    I think the back and front are screwed on as there are no hinges

    Just to chime in on this… the gold woman's watch is solid gold, hallmarked on both bracelet and case (see the .375 on the case lip) as 9K. The bracelet and case don't appear to have started life together, though, as the bracelet appears to be rose gold and the case yellow gold. Perhaps that's just the way the light has caught it.
    [Until Harmut comes along… ] I'd stab at the movement being an AS 340 or thereabouts. Worth it? Hmmm. Ladies' watches are terribly undervalued, but a good case, a nice dial and all gold? I'd say a clean and lube would be economically viable.
    Watches of this era (1930s) wouldn't have always been branded, so no shame in that.

    AS 340 or related? I doubt it - the position of the stem release screw is about midway between the two plate screws on the AS 340 but here, it is closer to the right one (with the crown at the top), Also, the position of the click doesn't match, but that feature is not as structural as the other and can be modified easier. I can't find a match at present, though, even though the bridge layout vaguely reminds me of Electa/Gallet.....

    Well, that's one of the movements that Ranfft's 'advanced' search threw up. I didn't linger. I'm resigning any further attempts at movement identification - it's all yours, H.
