    Re: Vintage Watch

    Welcome to Watchuseek. That is a nice looking watch from the 1950s, probably a smaller gent's watch (by modern standard a ladies' size watch - but in those days, those were even smaller, lacked a seconds hand and looked a little different). There were several "Delaware" brands, some Swiss, some US so it won't be easy to determine which one it can be attributed to without pictures of the movement inside. For which you have to open the case up. The dial and hands have Radium lume (as shown by the "Ra" either side of the 6:00) which is still radioactive, even though the lume won't glow any more so please be a little careful with any dismantling.

    Thank you very much for that information. very interesting for a little watch. I managed to get another pic of the back and inside if that helps at all.

    Also I don't know if i'm allowed to as but would anyone be able to put a rough value on the watch? just out of interest.

    Thanks,

    Zak

    I can't see the attachments of the movement shots, so I can't fully comment.

    Having said that, this is certainly a watch whose value lies in the enjoyment that you can derive from wearing it, and I do not think that you would realise any significant sum from selling it.
    I may be a little bit overly into Japanese watches. Maybe.
