    What do you like from my trip to the antique store today?

    I saw these old watches at an antique store today. All are in good working condition. What do you think about them?

    1. Candino (gold plated brass case)
    2. Gubelin (gold plated brass case, circa 1960s)
    3. O**ol (?? this one I can't quite make out of the name, circa 1970s with days of the week in German)
    4. Daltos (a pocket watch with open display front and back)

    Gubelin is the one, are you sure it's just plated?

    Nice haul.

    Number 3 is an Ogival.

    Thanks for the feedbacks.

    I like the Gubelin as well. It's probably not gold coated but I will double check today. I didn't give this piece a proper look yesterday and focused instead on their other pieces.

    Hmmm... Ogival is what it is! Thanks! I am not able to find much info on this brand but I sorta like the 70s look. The dial is also much smaller than the Glashuette Original Seventies model if you are familiar with that brand. I also very much like the blue dial color.

    Will go back to the shop today and dig up some more. I told them yesterday that I may need to spend the night :)

    2. Omega $1100
    3. Patek $15k
    4. IWC $3500
    5. Longine $2500
    6. Walthams $3500
    7. LeCoultre - ??
