  1. Thank you all for helping me. From what I could find FHF is highly likely and if 1146 is correct (as suggested by wls1971, thank you very much), the size range would fit very well as the movement is about 20mm in diameter. The movement from rogart63 indeed looks a lot like it, however, I don't know how the number 39 on in fits into the mix. For what it is worth I have it back together and the only thing missing is broken ratchet wheel screw. I've measured the broken screw as well as I could and it is a right hand screw, about 1,3mm long the threaded section is 0,85mm long the head diamter is 1,50mm flat without any bevel. It has about 5 turns over that 850µm and the diameter of the threaded section is about 550µm in diameter. Can somebody tell me how to get a replacement? I really would really like to get it working again. Thanks for all of your input, Norbert
  2. Thank you very much for your input you are amazing. The FHF 39, thanks rogart63, indeed looks very close. I've added some pictures of the dail side and the stripped ?base-plate?. Don't mind the pencil , I'm only pointing to remind me on how this thing may go together again. I still can't spot any numbers. Thanks for the help saswatch88, however, I think I need some more handholding in order to figure all of that out ;-). I've measured the broken screw as well as I could and it is a right hand screw, about 1,3mm long the threaded section is 0,85mm long the head diamter is 1,50mm flat without any bevel. It has about 5 turns over that 850µm and the diameter of the threaded section is about 550µm in diameter. I don't know if that helps any but I really would like to put it back together. Thank you all very much for you inputs and let me know if you need some more information or would like to see some additional stuff about that watch. Cheers Norbert
  3. Please help me to identify this movement. It came out of women's wrist watch. The movement diameter is 20mm. I was looking for some kind of model number but can't spot any. And if there are some very experienced folks out there I have an additional question. The ratchet wheel screw was broken after it came out of the cleaner. If somebody could point me to where I could by spares, if that is even possible. Thanks for your help. Norbert
  4. That is probably true and having a watch that works is definitely more interesting than just owning an overweight bracelet ;-) Can you give me rough estimate what the restauration of one of these should cost if it just needs fresh oil and a cleanup? The watchmaker said something around 400€ per piece, is that a reasonable price?
  5. That helps a lot thank you very much. Forgive the stupid question but is that something interesting or a very run-of-the-mill giveaway piece, despite its sentimental value of course. I'm just asking since the local watchmaker said something like is not worth the effort servicing it, Therefore it is still in question if it should be repaired or keep it in it's non functional state. Cheers and many thanks, Bertl
  6. Oh yeah, that would probably help ;-) As said earlier I don't know a lot about mechanical watches yet.
  7. Hello, a friend of mine recently had the questionable pleasure to deal with coordinating the inheritance of a family member. There was a lot to go through, including two watches of a brand which neither my friend, I, nor the internet knows a lot about. Both seem to be very similar, however, in one case the movement was removed from the case. We have close to no experience with mechanical watches, so I hope one of you might can provide some clues on how old they are and if they are interesting pieces? Your help is very much appreciated, Cheers Norbert
