    Record de luxe ladies watch needs identifying please

    Hi i stumbled on this site while trying to do some research into a watch my Mother inherited from her late Aunt.

    All i know about it, is ithat it's a Record De Luxe ladies gold wristwatch, there is a mark on the clasp that says NK and what i think is the hallmark, there is also an R on the winder.

    I'm asking here as there seems to be very little information on the net regarding the company or maybe even some sort of database for the Record watch co.

    here is a pic to help you identify it:

    Record was the 'internal' brand for the US sales agent for Longines, Whittnaur. A pic of the movement (insides) would help date it. The posts in the links and articles forum (and others) at the top of the forum may help you further.

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Record was founded as an independent maker in 1903. They actually had their own calibres. Longines bought them up in 1961. Depending on when the watch was made exactly, it may well be an "original' Record.

    Thanks for the correction.
