MessageSujet: What was your first pocket watch ?   Sam Juil 09, 2011 9:22 am

I bought my first pocket watch on 28th February 2004. It is a very classic watch made by Beaucourt, with cylinder escapement. I remember that I was very happy this day ! I was really fascinated by this watch and the mechanical movement. This is why I decided to search other pocket watches Smile
It is still in my collection and I will never sell it.







Now, tell us your story !

Je me lance: Very Happy

Montre de poche Longines, mouvement 15l, elle est de 1868.
Je l'ai achetée en 2008 mais elle n'est déjà plus en ma possession...

My first pocket watch was a non working MOLNIJA 3602 pocket watch offered to me by my father-in-law.

It tooks me a very long time to refurbish and restore it (by respect to him) for a pocket watch which intrinsic value is almost nothing !

My turn,

My first pocket watch, bought on a flea market since about 3 years, and always in my possession.

Blue hands (with a little rust) and scratched dial

By the fact, it's not currently working and will be (maybe) my first attempt on fix a watch.
Here is the caliber, with magnifiques cotes de genève!

Bon, j'ai bien conscience qu'il ne s'agit pas d'une pièce d'exception, mais c'est mon premier achat de vintage sur une brocante, alors l'attachement sentimental est inestimable (nnaahhh! just kidding!! lol! )

My first pocket watch was given from my grand-mother in law. It is a familly watch bought by his father or grand father, she doesn't know.
That's a cylinder escapement watch in a case made of argentan (this watch has no money value Smile.)



HP movement? (HP is engraved under the balance wheel, but PRIORITA BESANCON is engraved on the winding rochet plate.)


Cheers!
