    Washington 25 Jewel Incabloc Superautomatic

    Hi folks! Bringing this to the experts. I was just given this watch, belonged to my grandfather, but I can find basically no information whatsoever on what it is. Looks like a cute little watch. Started right up as soon as I picked it up. Seems to keep reasonable time so far. Bracelet is definitely not original but I'm wondering if anyone knows when it was made, by who etc.

    Thanks!

    Yea that part is pretty apparent...more curious as to what the heck it is.

    It's apparently an obscure brand with not much to be learned, but if you want to know some basic information about it, you can check the Mikrolisk.de database. If you open it up, we can probably tell you information about the movement.

    Thank thank the info. I figured about as much, yea. I've seen a few that look kind of similar in the past. I'll pop the case back off at some point and have a look inside.

    Popped the caseback off tonight. Here's what we have inside.

    "UNADJUSTED SWISS. SEVENTEEN JEWELS"
    Also, somewhat hidden from view is "PA 2452"

    I'm going to take a shot here and say I'm looking at an ETA 2452 movement?

    So far, despite the watch looking rough, it keeps great time. Would like to clean the face up and order a new domed glass for it but, not sure where I'd get that...

    Anyone have any recommendations?

    Yes, ETA 2452 (with slow date change 21:00-24:00). As I am typing, I've got an ETA 2472 on my wrist which is the same movement with instant date change at 24:00.

    The movement looks very clean so the watch should be serviceable. The crystal can be replaced by any decent watchmaker. As for the dial, you would either need to accept it as it is, or one can try to gently rodico the stuff off (if only superficial) or one would need to redial it (if the mess has affected the dial substance). To me, it looks permanent though (unfortunately).
