ADMINS - Please remove this same question in Clock World, no one is watching there and I feel lonely so I will put here again. Thank you!
Hello watchuseek nation!
Pardon me I am new here If I make some mistakes (posting to wrong thread) please be patient
I am long time photo camera collector and I know everything about GAS and how to fight with that syndrome Few days ago I was visiting my usual places in search for cameras and I saw very nice (but very dirty) Citizen and guess what, I bought it. I can't blame myself, Citizen is culprit! It was love at first sight.
So, I came back home, and I started to watch youtube videos about vintage wrist watches then I clean my small little friend and fell into bed. Next morning I was hooked! I went to few other local antique stores and I found this beauty which I will present to you with few photos.
My questions is:
Does anyone know this particular brand? FEDDERN!?
Any information is welcome.
All I can find on google is:
Mr. Feddern Walter was the guy who make this watch (I guess)
Mr. Feddern lived in Dublin and he was owner of the jewelry/watchmaker store in Stillorgan/Dublin
I believe that the case of this model is gold (I see some marks but is unclear), I had small particles of gold dust on cloths in the process of cleaning/polishing
I asked in few major watch stores in Dublin about Feddern but no one knows nothing. Based on this information I believe it's pretty rare time pieces.
Strap is brand new, I bought it today. I like it. It's simple and it fits, in my opinion, perfectly. Old one was ughhh ugly, dirty and in very bad shape.
I will add pictures of Citizen also. Oh yeah and how can I identify model/year of Citizen?
Thank you in advance! It will help me a lot to start my own collection If I know what I have actually.
It was impulse buy and It did not cost a lot so I'm good even if I can't find any information and besides that I really like Feddern.
