Re: Correct buckle/strap for 68 Memovox

It is possible that it originally had an 18mm X 13mm strap and buckle like that. It could have also had other combinations. It is impossible to tell without more information, such as a catalog entry, or production date from the factory. What you have there is a gold-plated LeCoultre buckle from the ...

Re: Help with this Le coultre

I think the guilloche engraving on the dial is original, but the printing on the dial has been redone.

It is a 18K gold case, which is unusual for a US market LeCoultre.

Value is gold melt, plus a bit for the movement. I would not consider this watch a collector's item.

Re: Questions on parts for a Gubelin Ipso-Vox

Thanks Zaf, that's kind of what I thought.

Is there anyplace I can look to get the dimensions of the crowns?

I'd like to find a matched pair of unsigned replacements.

Re: 2 Atmos

1st one is from the early 1960's. Caliber 528-6. 2nd one is more recent. Probably 1980's or early 1990's. Cal. 540. A fairly reliable method for determining age on these Atmos clocks is to take the serial number, divide it by 20,000, then add to 1954. For example, if the serial number is 300,000, di...
