    A Watch With Bearings.

    Hope this is in the right place. Recently picked up this advertising mechanical wristwatch, it is advertising SKF Bearings, the dark disc in the centre of the dial rotates with the sweep hand and the 'logo' appears and disappears every 1/4 sweep. There are no indications as to who produced this watch but on the stainless steel screw down case back is 'waterproof Swiss made' and the number 1101 3 at the bottom. The watch is 34mm without the crown and 18mm between lugs, strap size.

    Have you got any pictures of the movement? that could help identify it. Otherwise I guess it's a generic 50's(?) swiss watch, so maybe posting in the vintage forum would get more help?

    Here's the movement. Number under the balance wheel is 1802/03. Says 17 jewels on the plate.

    Ok, that's an AS 1802/03 movement, made by A. Schild SA in around the mid 60's. It's a basic, nothing special, watch movement really. They made millions of them and they were then sold to other companies to put the finishing touches to.

    That's great, thanks, the AS you mention confirms what I believe is in a 'lozenge' directly under he balance wheel above the movement number, difficult to see as it's partly covered. Nice to be able to identify.
