Re: Anyone ever seen this GF Sidney unusual swing out watch?

Most interesting design! No, I haven’t seen it before, but maybe you don’t know yet the Patent No. 2,229,978 of Herbert I.

Re: A Hamilton by any other name...Vantage!

Just recently, I received another Vantage catalog of the 60s: Vantage-Catalog_01_575x768.jpg Vantage-Catalog_02_1024x669.jpg Vantage-Catalog_03_1024x658.jpg Vantage-Catalog_04_1024x656.jpg Vantage-Catalog_05_575x768.jpg I did not only receive the catalog, but this: Hamilton_Vantage_01_1024x768.jpg H...

Re: Automatic K-504 with an early Case Number

Sorry about that ;) I posted it upside down! You're welcome! Something like this just happens. I guess, you'll know the "710 cap" joke? 710.jpg :lol: :mrgreen: Sorry! Seriously: does anybody has one of the other candidates (K-507, K-550 and K-575) and could have a look on the internal numbers (if a...

Re: Automatic K-504 with an early Case Number

Hello GreenBayStamps,

thank you very much for showing your K-502 case backs! It’s a perfect match when you’ll turn them for 180°:
Deckel_K-502_9960.jpg
Deckel_K-502_9960.jpg (357.16 KiB) Viewed 113 times
;)

Then, the number will change to

9960

What are, in fact, the first four digits of the catalog numbers for the K-502!

Regards

Martin

Automatic K-504 with an early Case Number

Just recently I bought another K-504. I had already one, but the other is more a parts watch. Anyway, when I compared the two I noticed something interesting: K-504_08_1024x768.jpg Both Case backs do have the very same number: 99644 Obviously, this is no serial number. But what is it? Just to show t...

Re: Something different

Maybe the Swiss Patent No. 15360 (mentioned on the Watch) could be of interest: CH15360_Courvoisier.pdf It was filed on 12th November 1897 in Swiss Patent Office by Courvoisier Frères – their name is present of the watch too. I guess, the watch was exported to one of the countries were Spanish is sp...

Re: Genral pattons possible watch

Hi FlyingHippy, can't contribute anything regarding the watch, but the box is for a Omega Constellation de Luxe or even a Constellation de Grand Luxe (both having an 18K solid gold case - the Grand Luxe even has a solid gold bracelet). Is the insert still present? Most often, the insert is missing i...

But “Just 1 More” not only has one already, but both versions with the original bracelets. Wow. And it’s no “pure” Sea Scape II at all. Oops. But what is it? I don’t think i...
