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...

Re: A Sea Scape II with grey dial

Ouch! Seems, I’m the fool of week! :( :oops: Well, I thought I’d be the first owner of a Sea Scape II among the fellows here…. 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...

A Sea Scape II with grey dial

Until now, the only available info about the Sea Scape II was the catalog description from the 1962 and 1963 catalog: Hamilton-Catalog_1962_Sea-Scape-II_Detail.jpg Well, just recently I landed one – with the grey dial what ist just awesome! I’m only aware of another Hamilton with a grey dial, what's...

Re: 50s Timex with period-correct friends

That picture is AWESOME!!! I dont have any firearms pre-1983 or so but I am trying for one of the CMP surplus 1911s. I have a WWII Coca-Cola bottle and access to an olive-drab us army typewriter for the potential picture should I happen to get the 1911;) Thanks! As you don’t have a 1911 to be photo...

Re: 50s Timex with period-correct friends

Hello shadeone, a super idea - I really like this! That’s my approach too: composing stills with period matching items. As you seem to be a collector of typewriters: well, I own one vintage typewriter, what’s a “Fortuna” made by the German company Sauer & Sohn in the late 20s/early 30s. Well, in my ...

Re: K-409 with US Military Service Number on the back

Thank you all for the explanations and link! Ah, I see, he was an enlisted member of the Army of the United States, i.e., a draftee and not a member of the US Army. Interesting differentiation. I wasn’t aware of this “sophisticated” system (but I know now, that for example the famous 101st Airborne ...

K-409 with US Military Service Number on the back

Just recently I bought a K-409 (listed in the catalogs 1958 and 1959): K-409_08_1024x767.jpg Well, a nice looking watch – but in this case my interest is focused on the presentation engraving on the back: K-409_03_1024x767.jpg So, L. W. Thomas received this watch on Christmas 1961 (I'm pretty sure, ...
