Another unknown logo to me

Recommended Posts

I was given a ladies watch which I'm guessing is circa 1930s to practice on and I can't identify.

I do like the cross hatch finish on the movement, I've not seen it before on a watch.

Below is the logo and a photo of the movement, it now stripped and cleaned and ready to be assembled with the exception that the mainspring needs to be replaced as it is currently fitted with one that was modified to fit poorly.

If anyone can identify the brand it would be appreciated.

No unfortunately I dont know the movement manufacturer, I haven't been able to identify the logo.

No logo on the dial and I forgot to take a photo of the dial side of the movement until it was mostly dismantled, but I've attached a photo of the dialside for what it is worth, the dial and case if it helps.

The case has a logo of a hand inside it with the word Handley

Handley and Tilley where Australian watch case makers who originally stamped their cases HANTILY the company split in the 1930's and Handley carried on production stamping the cases HANDLEY from 1934 onwards which fits in rather nicely for a watch from your part of the world.

Thanks wls1971. I looked up AS922 and got the spring size of 1.45 x 9.0 x 0.11 x 260mm  which has made me happy as my calculated thickness and length based on my measurements and the K factor was 9.0 x  0.11 x 270mm.

It's good to know my calculations were correct.

I've now added the mainspring to my next Cousin's order.

    • "Philip head screws"   are very common and loads of timex dead watches out there for "a buck or two".  I did not know the screws came in metric and S.A.E..  vin
    • Unless you have another watch you can steal them from, it will be hard to say that they are "screw x". You should be able to get those from a normal fastener supplier though. You just need to know the thread pitch, diameter, and length of the screws. You can measure the thread pitch with one of these: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thread_pitch_gauge Note that metric and imperial systems measure screws differently of course, so if you're having trouble getting something that is exactly right, try using the other system. Googling around should get more details on getting the right measurements.
       
    • I have the above watch that has four small cross head screws holding the back of the case on. My question is that these look rather worn so where are places to get these screws and what measurements would be needed? The pic is not the actual watch but is the model. TIA Mike
    • .. on the other hand, there is the ETA 2893-2 automatic GMT for example... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Authentic-ETA-2893-2-automatic-GMT-watch-movement-Victorinox/132919302254?hash=item1ef29b986e:g:KOMAAOSwuJRcG5Kj:rk:55:pf:0
