25 Executive or Ambassador??

Submitted by JP on April 27, 2012 - 2:41am

I acquired a 14K RGP square movement and case today. The movement is a 10A 15 Jewels with a circle symbol. No dial or hands. Dust covered trifold with dust cover intact and in good shape. It appears to be an Executive or maybe an Ambassador. Both have same case style. Crystal dimensions are 21.7 by 21.7 mm. Lug to lug is 33.21mm by26.6 mm with no crown. Trifold is in excellent shape. Movement is missing balance and balance cock as well as hour wheel. I think it is worth repairing since it seems to be a rare one worth the effort. I will post pictures as soon as I get it cleaned up.

1941 Alden, Engineer, lone eagle?

Hello all, I recently bought a watch and I cant figure out what it is. It looks like an Alden but the thing that is throwing me is that it has a 21j movement? I cant find anything with a 21j movment in this style. Second question is since it is a little dirty, would it be worth it to have it cleaned up or would it take away from the value?


Bulova or not?

Hi all,

I would appreciate your help here! I bought this watch not too long ago, in a second-hand store, rather cheap, just because I liked the dial (very dark green). I assumed it to be a fake Bulova.

Yet my watchmaker claims it's a real one (which I find hard to believe, because the model is completely unknown to me and authenticity markers are missing). So what do you guys think? Thanks!
