Re: Tiffany & Co. Pocket Watch Info

Wonder if I could contact Patek or Tiffany’s to see how to further research the watch? You can email Archives@Tiffany.com to inquire. I'm not sure what information they'd have, but maybe something. I would be very surprised if Patek didn't have records of your watch. Here's a link where you can req...

Re: Tiffany & Co. Pocket Watch Info

Also, thanks to the info from this thread, I was able to find this link from a Christie’s auction: https://www.christies.com/lotfinder/Lot/patek-philippe-a-fine-18k-gold-two-train-6050087-details.aspx It shows a watch very similar to mine with a Patek movement, sold to Tiffany’s.

Re: Tiffany & Co. Pocket Watch Info

Yikes. Grandpa had expensive taste. Any 18K Tiffany repeater is something else, but to sweeten the deal, I think this movement may be an unmarked Patek Philippe.

So much for the lifetime spring pitch!
Well, to be fair, considering this movement hasn't been made in 60 years, there's a very good chance it did outlive the original owner. :lol:

Re: misaligned AGN in 10, 11 & 12 o'clock - very common

I would appreciate any knowledge on this topic. The following is pure speculation, not to be confused with actual knowledge. But one explanation that would explain the misalignment would be that perhaps the "0" on the left is upside down. Meaning, the mounting nibs are not symmetrical, so it seats ...

Re: rolex Silver Prince

Here's a little something to aspire to. You don't see a Prince in platinum every day. And the fire-sale price of $99,735.60 is awfully tempting. :lol: https://a.1stdibscdn.com/rolex-prince-brancard-art-deco-wristwatch-in-platinum-circa-1929-for-sale/366869/j_52948921542127952125/5294892_org1_master....
