    Vintage Ebel-watch. Which model?

    Hi.
    First I want to thank you all for a great forum, been reading but not writing.
    I've inherited a watch from my mother's grandparents and can't find any information about it.
    It's a Ebel-watch from about 1920-1930, I think!
    The windup mechanism works great and the watch runs like never before.


    Is there anyone out there who got any information about it?
    Thankful for all help.

    Hi and welcome.

    Very nice. As far as I know, Ebel - like most Swiss makers - didn't give its watches model names back then.

    If you can open the back and take pictures of the movement and inside case back perhaps someone will be able to tell you more.

    I believe that the backside is openable, because I see some hinges.
    I'm afraid to break something though.


    Is there any special ways to open these watches or is it just like any other?

    If there is a hinge the back should open fairly easily - possibly using a thumbnail. Or if you nails are as weak as mine, a watch-case knife. Otherwise an ordinary penknife (or similar) might do it - but one slip and you have a nasty scratch so you may decide its not worth it.

    Hi and welcome
    A nice ladies early wristwatch, probably 20s.

    I do not think Ebel has serial number records, but I could be wrong.

    If you can take some pictures of movement and inside case we can see

    Thanks to both of you.
    We tried to open it, but we were unsuccessful.
    After a short vacation trip we will go to a auctionhouse here in Gothenburg for an appraisal.
    During this appraisal I'll try to take some photos of the movement, given that we won't open it.
