I have found out that both clocks are 31 day Jupiter clocks from Korea. Both cases are chipped or the carvings are broken.

I am not sure about all the parts in the three plastic trays. Could be anything and I have no way at the moment of looking at things and knowing what movements they are from.

Sorry. New to this. I was on the page where the stuff was showing, but it looks like the link takes you to the top of the group. If you scroll down in Geelong Online Garage Sales, you might see it. I will also try to download the pictures and post them.

I asked whether any of the watch or clock parts were identified or marked etc and never got an answer. Didn't go any further with it all. I think it was $80 for the lot which maybe got two clocks which could have been used as learning and practice and maybe some watches for everyday use, but I am pretty sure that just about everything in the plastic containers could pretty safely be classified as junk.

Sorry I missed this. Those clocks wouldn't be good to start to learn on very poor modern movements. I can tell because of the way the arrows are pointing, you wind these up the other way to who you would normally wind a clock. You are right about the plastic boxes. As for the watches I don't think you have missed anything. You have done well in saving your money.

@oldhippy The question that I referred to in my previous post was to the seller. That is who did not reply. I wasn't about to just fork out money without having any real idea as to what I might be getting.

I will just have to keep working on the clocks I have for now and keep looking.

    • Sounds like an interesting symtom, is it falling exactly 1 hour behind with every daychange or what? A guess with that day date 70's model it would house an 718 movement.
    • Just so I understand clearly first it's an hour off then you reposition the hands it's one half hour off? As it's the calendar parts shall have to take the hands and dial off and see what's going on. Then it's hard to go beyond this because which movement is this? But we could guess if the hands are actually tracking it's probably not a Canon opinion the problem perhaps. That takes us back to something to do with the the calendar parts which are under the dial unfortunately. Then we can't even look for a tech sheet if one even exists without a movement identification. But more likely have the watch hasn't been serviced in a long time that needs to be done.
    • Just in case your part doesn't work the last link has one. Big part of the problem might be for people identify the watch perhaps. It actually goes by several different names. Then as far as I can tell from looking at bestfit online and the Site below there's only one set bridge. I snipped some images out of the physical bestfit book at one time there was what was called the fingerprint system used to setting parts to identify your watch. In this case will use it to see what your parts are supposed to look like. Unfortunately the snipped images won't print out the correct size but at least you can look at the shape and see if it matches.. The second link has a listing of all the parts. The third listing  which watches have your set bridge and its and the last listing in case you want to buy one it looks like they have it in stock. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Langendorf_1305 http://cgi.julesborel.com/cgi-bin/matcgi2?ref=LNG_1305 http://cgi.julesborel.com/cgi-bin/matcgi2?ref=X`_DZLU http://www.julesborel.com/s.nl/it.A/id.57704/.f  
    • Hi everyone and hope everyone is OK. bought this watch in a joblot for a tenner (£10.00) so no complaints. The watch works fine but the date changes an hour forward every 24 hours. So if I cycle through the watch and it changes at 12, the next cycle it will be 1am, the next 2am etc. I also removed the hands, cycled the watch to the precise time of date change and then replaced the hands at the 12 O'clock position but the date started to change at the half past position with the same problem as above. The hands sit fine and are snug. Any ideas on what is going on? Many thanks and kind regards. Pedro.
