    Triumpf Niello P/W

    Hi Guys, I can't even find any acknowledgement of the name, keep getting "do you mean Triumph?"
    Gather the cracks of the dial mean it's ceramic.
    Any information gladly received.

    Hi -

    Welcome to the Vintage and Pocket Watch forum!

    All I can tell you is that it is a German watch: the spelling of the name and "Prima Qualität" point to that.

    The dial is porcelain, not ceramic (splitting of hairs, perhaps, but we tend to be pedantic about such things...).

    The "Prima Qualität" is more than a tad odd, though: it's very colloquial German and basically means "Great quality", which is an odd thing to put on a watch of this type...

    My guess would be after 1900 but before 1920 as far as age goes. Might be Swiss or German. Hard to tell.

    Bless you both for your help.
    John, "watch of this type?" do you mean size or quality?
    I once swapped it at an antique fair just cos I liked the case, and that was 10 years ago.

    Triumpf was a brand apparently used by:


    • Badische Uhrenfabrik
    • Dohrmann, Ernst
    • Filius, C.
    • Fischinger
    • Gerl & Schipper, Köln
    • Stüwen & Spann

    Try the German google:

    Thank you for that Marrick.
    Even the German Google asks "Do you mean Triumph?" but then IS packed with Triumpf entries.
    I appreciate the time and trouble you've taken for me.
    Take care
