What do I have?

These are the watches I acquired from a local thrift shop, I am trying to figure out what exactly  they are. I will try and give as much detail as I can. There is a Seikomatic-p, a Bulova accutron, a eternomatic, a Parker, 4 different Hamilton's, a westclox pocket watch, and a Virtus twin pocket watch. Any help is appreciated, 20210416_205625.thumb.jpg.6f220f4a1c5702f3945da3e1352e0a7c.jpg20210418_212151.thumb.jpg.1b3d19d02b86d9d3a2e72a0168fe143a.jpg20210418_211158.thumb.jpg.b84f58e0c2290e8f58d887e7f5744933.jpg20210418_211249.thumb.jpg.19637031d87a7f796609ed18e521126e.jpg20210418_210825.thumb.jpg.c2f15e2aae7926f7e6f2048427d7ff6e.jpg20210418_211524.thumb.jpg.daba2bfc8d304eee0d88ed9a8ab88110.jpg20210418_211429.thumb.jpg.69c7f867b482e9a598752a0700904d49.jpg20210418_211341.thumb.jpg.e2356f82ead4bdb5161830e4f981274a.jpg20210418_211800.thumb.jpg.c2a38fbc77e319128a32499241082f83.jpg20210418_211635.thumb.jpg.4253d9acce0b7080cba2efd44da9f04b.jpg20210418_211941.thumb.jpg.2ac20223f44067b04a264b11598ed381.jpg20210418_212046.thumb.jpg.fad414bf7a90a8f9613a439197e15234.jpg

I found a couple more goodies in the watch repair kit. Any thoughts on these? The Longines inside of case says aw 14kwg.6 59056 10/86 and the movement seventeen (17) jewels adj. To temp & two (2) pos Longines watch. Co swiss 3839322 also 10 86 n it is missing the stem and crown. The other is a loose Royce movement. I have had the hardest time identifying exactly what these pieces are. I have a lot to learn20210419_215027.thumb.jpg.7967b27d01ed4f1b3573a73842009544.jpg20210419_215215.thumb.jpg.8e0e0ae3d97f92cc866eb6d19e169d2c.jpg20210419_215304.thumb.jpg.11031bab738065dd01d59e9727a118b2.jpg20210419_222708.thumb.jpg.361c274112ff2d0d0abecf18c00048e8.jpg20210419_222811.thumb.jpg.df899fad0184ce213ae989abf8cea6ae.jpg

I added to the collection this weekend with some seiko divers. Twenty bucks from the same second hand shop. 

Bargain. Hard to believe there are shop owners too lazy to type seiko and 8 digits into Google. Good for you really.

 Wrong gender, ladies watches aren't really collectible and hard to find a lady who would wear a used watch unless its Cartier or Rolex, audemars piguet ...

 

 

Very true, my interest really is in the mechanical aspect of these time pieces and the possibility that I might eventually gain the skills to work on them. They to me are works of mechanical art

Thankfully for me they let a few gems slip through their fingers on occasion. They do estate liquidations and when they come across jewelry and watches they just separate them into a couple of baskets to sort later. Sometimes they will let me look before there watch person gets to it.

    • The guy will have set in a maximum bid that kicks in a new figure everytime someone places a single higher bid or their maximum steps up. A sneaky way to win is to snipe bid in the last few seconds but i think even that was pointless against sniping softwear previously. Recently I've noticed something new, the outcome is sometimes delayed while ebay determines the winner, so regardless of what bid is placed at the dead point of auction end the highest maximum overall bid takes the item. The highest maxiumum bid that is set during the aution's open time. Though frowned upon , what i like about sniping is the fact it can avoid getting into a maximum bidding war with others that watch the last hour. They up their maximum bid then you up your maximum bid and so on. Placing your max in the last few seconds prevents all that drama 😆, you either win or you dont. I like to close my phone case and not look at the final result for an hour or so 🤣
    • I must say I'm the same, buying a complete set of something saves a lot of time and effort but there is a certain type of gratification for me hunting out all the add-ons.  Ps hands down having a psychotherapist for a wife is way better than having a psychopath for a wife in my experience 🙄  
    • Mark, good info.   My attempted photo through 10x loupe.  Not the best but an effort.  As much as this sounds dumb, the HS has increased its gap from the the cock.  And, seems to spin 3 times longer.  I think I have some residual fiber from my pegging.  What is small enough to clean out these pivots? Or is this where the L&R correct cleaning product helps?  Liquid movement will ensure the pivot holes are clear?  Yup, I have 3x cheaters and the 10x Loupe.  I will have another run at examination.  Everflex green sticks.  Quick google, will have to dig deeper.  Perhaps that is the key to clean pivot holes.   Noted on mixing Naptha based solvent and IPA, water based.  I have a gallon of Coleman White Fuel for about 15 years.  Time to use it and use as rinse.  I stumbled on a L&R Master for $20 with all original L&R jars and lids.  Just have to research basket, a topic for a different post and I am forcing myself to not get distracted by this premature acquisition and practice with my tools. For now, the main spring will not get attention.  After I put the watch together and running, a small miracle, I don't think the main spring to be a major detractor for practice.  My plan is to have my watch maker service my main spring.  Support local small business and he always shares knowledge when I visit.
    • Hi Ammar, I couldn't find anything about the chemical resistance of PLA to naphtha. According to these sources it doesn't rate too well. I think that your concern is correct. If you did a final rinse in IPA after the parts are out of the basket my guess is it would be fine. I have no affiliation in either of these companies. https://prusament.com/chemical-resistance-of-3d-printing-materials/ https://www.filamentive.com/chemical-resistance-of-3d-printing-filament/
