Hey All,

This came my way via a lot purchase and I thought I would post some shots and get some feedback. No markings inside the case.

Timex. A thread below about a 'Kings" watch may provide a clue. Bill D says 'AS' made some of the Timex 17-J movements and the movement looks a lot like the move ment Jack shows in a link.You might look carefully uner the balance wheel to see if there are any initials that will identify the maker of the movement. In 1959 Timex started using a 17-J movement made by Hattori(Japan). I think you watch may predate that. One or more of the members will fill in the details, I am sure. Nice catch by the way.

AS 1187. The code is right on the movement. This must be the short lived 17J line that Bill was referring to. By all accounts, it appears to be circa 1950.

Interesting.

Thanks,

I thought the Timex 17J versions were from Durowe = German

Timex 100 AS movement. You can see part of the logo under balance.

Distant Memory of a Thread from the Old Forum

If my memory is correct there was a long thread on the old Forum about a similar watch. I believe the conclusion was back then that the "Timex" on the watch had nothing to do with the Timex brand that we know, but might have been on of the many Swiss brand names used PRIOR to the emergence of the Timex brand of the U.S. Time Corp.

I would have to agree that that watch looks to be from the 30's or 40's and The font for Timex on the dial is quite different.
