    A little info on the Grenar:

    From Grenar Watch SA, Grenchen, Switzerland, dating to the late 1940's/early 1950's, with what looks like an AS 1187 15 jewel movement.
    So, in summary, from one of the "lost", and, sadly, these days not hugely sought after assemblers, (other than by those of us who enjoy the obscure,) with a decent enough generic movement. Some sharper photos would help, even if they were smaller.

    The first watch has a generic, relatively low grade, Swiss cylindre escapement movement from the late 19th century. The Pearlham has an early Langendorf movement (L.W.Co. = Langendorf Watch Company), also in cylindre escapement grade. Mikrolisk gives Pearlham as being a sub brand of Langendorf.
