  1. Adar gold watch?

    Hi Our charity shop has just received a tiny (1/2" diameter!) ladies gold wristwatch and the name on it is ADAR. I couldn't find this in a search here so wonder if anyone can tell me about the maker, please? It is Swiss Made and 17 jewel Incabloc. TIA Vigman
  2. I've corrected the spelling on the Ebay adverts. Also adding that I will give free postage to watch forum members if they give their ID when paying. Vigman
  3. Thanks so much! Only just seen this as I am having serious eye problems at the moment and keeping clear of the computer. Also meant to say, if folks can identify as Watch Forum members then I will give free postage!
  4. Hi This is the link to the 2008 edition of the Jaegre-Le Coultre "Manufacturer's Book Of Timepieces 2008 + Pricelist = Other http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272673997843?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Thank you for looking Vigman
  5. Hi I am selling the 2007 and 2008 Jaegre-Le Coultre books of timepieces. The first is here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272674007413?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Thank you for looking Vigman
  6. This has sold, please confirm if you are the buyer and member of the forum Thanks Vigman
  7. Ladies Gold wristwatch - no maker

    Thank you so much for all that information, it is just the type of facts I love to learn! Interestingly it looks almost like the gold case has been lathed out of a block, especially due to its thickness but it may possibly be cast. It certainly isn't beaten and raised like the thin back plates I have seen before.. Do people replace the coloured 'glasses' when restoring this type of watch? The old crazed plastic one disintegrated. My daughter lived in Edgbaston when at uni in Birmingham and I know both those addresses. Vigman
  8. Ladies Gold wristwatch - no maker

    Thanks, Andyclient. Looks the same to me although the ends might be slightly burred over. I will still try and sell it with the bracelet attached (even at scrap price) in case anyone here can save it! Vigman

    If I did want to remove the bracelet on this watch are these simple pins that have to be driven out of the hinge? They don't look like spring pins? TIA Vigman
  10. Ladies Gold wristwatch - no maker

    ...my last edit failed. The crazed plastic yellow 'glass' fractured when re-seating........! I still don't want to remove the bracelet and movement and scrap the case if someone here can do something with it! Vigman
  11. Ladies Gold wristwatch - no maker

    Thanks. As it wasn't working I carefully removed the bezel. The glass (crazed plastic) is yellow not the watch face, which is dirty. The case is 9ct gold and hallmarked (1930 Chester) and also says StolKase, British Made G.A.S. It is a surprisingly thick case so probably 3 grams (£36 at today's prices.) I'll probably advertise it here in case someone just needs to give it a good clean. https://goo.gl/photos/4wLd6nuwbMnxDTG97 Vigman
  12. I found this gold wristwatch in my boot sales/house clearance boxes. It is not working (but winds) and there is no maker's name. The strap is rolled gold but I'm sure the main body and back are gold but the only seam on the watch is just below the faceted bezel. I'm not sure if this lifts off or unscrews but it seems odd that there is no back to take off or flip open where I would hope to see hallmarks. The face is yellow with some rubbing from one of the hands. It came in a box along with a repair note. Any info on age or maker welcomed. Also whether this one has to end up in my gold scrap box? https://goo.gl/photos/MPrZtwoiMWMdNjvn6 TIA Vigman
  13. I came across this in my boxes of watches. It is a silver cased watch with a yellowish gold face (or just oxidised silver?) It seems to be fully wound but when I carefully put pressure on the winding key, the balance wheel moves. It has 'compensation balance' in engraved script. https://goo.gl/photos/jAWVRvyXRRHeeH4S6 I will check out the UK hallmarks. Is this worth restoring or does it have to go in my silver scrap box, please? TIA Vigman
  14. I'm posting in this section for the first time but members who have seen other posts know that I am sorting out watches from boot sales and house clearances. I came across this working Tell chronograph yesterday https://goo.gl/photos/iLFvAqMPoJdqV9KK8 I'd be interested to know more about it, especially its age, please. It will be going on to Ebay some time in the future TIA Vigman
  15. Will add the not working Unknown Maker/Sterile watch for free to forum members who buy the Timor watch. Vigman
