    Also, please read the " Rules and Regulations", on the first WUS page.

    That will give you a good answer why it is not a good idea to try to get a valuation of your watch.

    It sounds like you have a very intersting watch, without seeing any pics.
    What is the history behind it? WW2?
    If it is an Artillery watch, we at the PilMil Forum would like to see it too!

    Thanks for posting. Sorry photos aren't clear enough for us to tell much. Also pictures of the movement are far more useful for ID.
    We never give valuations here for reasons outlined in our sticky notes.

    I understand from your WUS name "Tashido" that you are from the "Land of the raising Sun" ?
    If you allow me a very unqualified guess:
    I think you have possibly Imperial Japanese pocket watches there.

    Very interesting watches you have, one having 7 subdials and the other one have two. Obviously you are on the correct track, the watches seems to be made for complicated calculations/time keeping and measuring.
    Artillery or submarine possibly?

    Please try to take some much sharper pictures if you can, also describe the function, if they are in running order.
    Can you access the movements, if you can I would love to see them.

    At least open both watches and describe any writing you see on the movements.

    Where did you get hold of the watches, are they inherited?

    Thanks!

    Re: Seikosha pocket watch

    WOW! Problem solved for watch number 2!!
    Watch number one seems to be just a multiple timezone watch. Civilian, European Made (?)
    Made for the Far East, judging from the names above the subdials!
    Tiensin, Singapore, Shanghai, Hong Kong etc

    More photos, please, of the movements?
