    Vintage Wrist Watch and Pocket Watch Identification help needed….

    Hello All,

    I need some help with identification again. I did my homework, at least tied too, I have been looking on the net, and I couldn’t find much.

    I know with the collective expertise on this board someone, somewhere will know something.

    I am trying to find as much information as possible on these watches...anything to point me in the right direction of acquiring more information.

    I know the name of the watches, but that doesn’t provide much information when searching the net (it usually does).

    I looked in the book the Complete Price Guide to Watches, and I couldn’t find a single one.

    Here they are the names and jewels if I know them.

    18KT 17 Jewel Omega Chronograph…I couldn’t find this one in the book, or on the Omega website. It was purchased in 1951. Identified...Thanks!



    18KT 21 Jewel Corum Wrist Watch Black Dial




    18KT 18 Jewel Bulova Agassis Phantom Pocket Watch



    18KT Initiative Push Repeater Pocket Watch



    18KT Vacheron Constantine Wrist Watch…Identified...Thanks!



    18KT David Keys Chronographer Maker to the Admiralty Pocket Watch


    Click on thumbnails to enlarge photos. I can send even larger ones if needed.

    Thanks in advance for all your help, I really appreciate it!

    Regards,

    John

    Movement (and inside of the caseback,) pics would help greatly!

    May I suggest that you add pictures of the movement if possible. This is essential for the pocketwatches, together with any case hallmarks. It may be easier for members to comment if you don't show so many in the same thread, it tends to be messy after a few replies.

    The Corum has a sibling in the book "Wristwatches" (Brunner/Pfeiffer-Belli) which had a golden dial, also hour markers written out in French, and which is labelled as being from the beginning of the seventies.

    Hello All,

    I am working on getting photos of the back, so please bear with me! As soon as I get them, I will post them.

    Regards,

    Hello Hartmut,

    Thanks for the information. The publication didn’t by chance have a reference number did it?

    No, I'm afraid not. It is a fairly general reference book with a few watches from all the major makers. Ask Corum for the reference - they may well still have it.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Hartmut,
