    Some cool watches I just received today! Sorta pic heavy

    Bought 5 lots of watches last week and they arrived today!
    The watches shown are the ones that interested me the most. There are about 20-30 other watches but they're either broken or cheap brands.

    Any info/input is always appreciated!

    My favourite out of everything. It has some cool blue hands, a sub-dial, simple dial, and fancy lugs.
    Missing a couple parts.
    I found that it was based on a 1940s Peseux movement.
    Does anyone know if it can be fixed???

    I think this needs a new battery.
    Pretty big at around 42-44mm and 22mm lugs.

    This Benrus is awesome!
    It has a display caseback which would be even cooler if the watch was running.

    This Delma has a very thin case and movement. It is about 5mm thick.
    Anyone know how I can bend the lugs back to its correct position?

    Dial is gone. Movement is really nice though.

    I like the Armitron and Seiko. The Sheffield would be nicer if it had the 3 missing "rubies" on the dial.

    Find out the calibre if it is a Peseux, and search the interweb for sources, or beg members on "wanted" forums!

    Agree with esteemed bobbee, that Orvin is a must fix. Fantastic lugs. If indeed it is a Peseux, and if indeed a Peseux calibre 190 (the bridges have different shapes on Ranfft, but as Roland says, the key to identification is in the set lever shape, not the bridges), then almost everything is available for it. A complete balance would set you back something in the region of USD$30 (NOS), for example, so parts are out there and not TOO expensive. As you are in the US, you can probably find parts readily enough.
