    Welsbro bumber

    I got a Welsbro bumper automatic and a Bascula a few days ago but hadn't had time to post any pic so here they are. the dial on the Welsbro is really age and looks like it has some moisture damage and the radium has turn black but the trade off is that it has and all stainless steel case which is very uncommon for its age. It runs but need a good cleaning and oiling and will sit in my pile of watches that needs servicing, and that is more than half of my collection.
    next up is the Bascula, it is in a fairly large 36mm case for its age when most cases are usually 32mm or less. It has relly nice long blued hands but the watch needs a new mainspring as the old one is broken.

    can anyone supply any info on the movements?

    The Welsbro seems to me to be an AS1171:

    It's actually an AS 1172 or AS 1173 - the AS 1171 has a small seconds hand.

    The other one looks rather like a Peseuxcalibre, something from the Peseux 7000 series:

    ... but there are some differences. Maybe Bascula "customized"the movement a little.

    I have finally taken off the dial of my Ovigal Bascula because I was curious as to who the movement maker was and because it needs a mainspring. Its not a Peuseux but an Arogno.
