  1. I just picked up 3 Elgin pocket watches (and 20 other watches and parts) at a garage sale for $9 USD! The two in a pocket watch case actually still work. I have 3 questions. 1. Does anyone have an approximate year on these watches (the one outside of the case is 1912/13) 2. How do I open the other two pocket watches so I can see the serial number? 3. Where can I find a crystal to replace the missing one? Thanks a lot! It was a great day!!
  2. Ok, I know this is not a watch, but it is a timekeeper. I got this neat vintage Cubo Desk Clock with what seems to be an old school vintage LED display. The display kind of reminds me of one of those old Pulsar LED watches. I googled this thing and all I could find was a couple pictures of it, no history or anything. I was wondering if anyone knew the history of this cool clock? I got it in a bulk lot at an estate sale which meant it was under $1 USD. Thanks a lot!

  3. I just got a good deal on an antique possibly 1700's (not sure though) pocket watch. It is marked D.D. Neveren London. I have photos of the watch and very close ups of the movement and the dial. I believe it is silver and has a ruby movement. I was just wondering if anyone knows much about this watch? Especially the year. I know this may not be the most valuable pocket watch in the world, but the fact it could be over 200 years old makes it really neat. My second question is, it runs well, but it is very fast (3 minutes late an hour). Is there a way to slow down the movement? I see there is a place on the back that it may be possible. Thanks a lot for your help!!

  4. I found this at a thrift store and it looked good one the outside, but when I opened it up to change the battery, the movement does not look Movado quality at all. It is a no jeweled movement made in Singapore and the inside of the case back says made in China. I am almost certain it is fake. I just want some of the experts to say it is and how to return it to the thrift store in a convincing way so I get my money back. Thanks! IMG_3001 IMG_2999
  5. The only thing that I see on the bracelet (assuming its the original one) is on the clasp it says 100% Stainless Steel Made In Hong Kong.
  6. I found this watch for $4USD and it really intrigued me because of the real wood face and interesting metal design around the crystal. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this Cheval Design Studio model ST006 watch? Google does not have anything on this brand! Is it a vintage or a newer one, what year is it? history? value? haha sorry about all of this, but I have no clue what this watch is! Thanks! I like it! Works great. It is quartz.
  7. I found this random Vintage Red LED watch at a thrift store for $4 USD. It seems to be missing part of the front where probably the brand name was. It is definitely vintage and not a new copy of a watch because of the way the LED lights up (hard to say what is different, but it is) and the amount of wear on it. I was wondering if anyone knew what brand this may be, or know any history behind this? Sorry about the second photo, it is blurry, but there is not much info on the back. Just the following: BaseMetal Bezel Stainless Back and the number 29177. Thanks a lot!!
  8. I recently acquired (in a large lot of watched for only $15 USD) a vintage working Seiko 5 Automatic watch that was in great shape except the fact that there seems to be a pin missing on the watch band clasp as seen in the photos. I was wondering where I could find the correct pin so I can fix this watch and use it! Thanks a lot! [
  9. I was out at two thrift stores over the past couple of days and I found 2 neater than average Timex watches, (all under $5 for both) the first is a Timex Q quartz. And the second is a really neat fully functional denim style timex mechanical watch (I bought it, but only had time to take a photo of it at the store). I was wondering if I could get more information / history / years on these neat watches, especially the mechanical denim one. While doing basic research, I saw that both of these seem to be rarer Timex watches. Thanks a lot!
  10. Again, I was helping my parents clean up their house and we found some neat things that they said I could have! One was my grandpa's stopwatch from WWII and the other is an old Compu Chron digital watch. I was wondering if anyone had any information on these neat pieces? I love finding things like these!
  11. I just got this in a Harvester Calendar Mechanical Watch (and a Pierre Cardin Quartz watch) for 1 USD and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this watch? I love to find out the history of watches. When wound up it seems to keep very good time! There is a slight problem with it, if anyone can help. There seems to be no way to change the hands on the watch. When I pull out the stem, it comes out pretty far, but when I turn it, it still winds the watch instead of changing the hands. I am not sure if there is a special way to change the time / date? Thanks a lot!!
  12. I know what they say, if it is too good to be true, it is I love art deco styles and I was wondering if this Omega watch at this price is a fake? Thanks! http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-1920s-OMEGA-MENS-WRIST-WATCH-ART-DECO-SCROLL-WORK-WHITE-ANTIQUE-/152235004723?hash=item2371e9d333:g:W5UAAOSw6WdXis6b
  13. We were cleaning the garage and inside an old suitcase we found a ton of neat things including this weird looking German Made, Vintage Shell Portable Alarm Clock. I had a couple questions about this. What year is this watch / the history behind it? It was found in a suitcase with items from the 1940s-1960s. Thanks a lot! Appreciate the help!
  14. Gotcha! Now, unfortunately, there are no (at least not that I can see) serial numbers on the case.
  15. We were cleaning the garage and inside an old suitcase we found a ton of neat things including this Timex mechanical / automatic watch. When shaken, the watch still works. I had a couple questions about this. What year is this watch / the history behind it? It was found in a suitcase with items from the 1940s-1960s. My second question is, how to I measure the watch so I can purchase a new band for it so I can wear it? Thanks a lot! Appreciate the help! foto_no_exif IMG_9154
