    Billodes for the Ottoman market

    Hello,

    I'm trying to track down examples of Billodes watches made for the
    Ottoman market which used the Billodes Turques cal 54 an example of which
    is posted here.

    I'm informed by Hartmut that this caliber " is frequently found in Ottoman watches for
    the oriental market".

    I'm an antique and vintage watch collector and would dearly like to see an example
    of one of these and wondered if anybody has one or could point me in the right direction.

    Thanks

    Well, if I remember right, a rather comprehensive collection in that department seems to be here:

    Pocket Watches - BALKAN ARMS - Arms, Art and Antiques from Balkans

    You should find a few of that calibre in that collection.
