Wittnauer watche dating

Wittnauer brand watches were made for them by various companies, so the Longines serial numbers wouldn't apply.

Larry [EDIT] I see that Kent posted while I was typing.

Took it out and there really weren't any unusual markings, a Wittnauer Revue with a neat 4 sided raised with a recessed seconds hand.

Popped the back off and found it to be a 17 jewel movement with a 14K case.

By the late 1930's mens watches were more masculine. This was made possible by the advent of square movements.

Until then all movements were round, limiting the designs.

It will NOT tell you the actual date the watch was acquired...

many watches spent years in warehouses before being sold... If there are some letters incoroporated in the serial number (common with Hamilton and Elgin) your watch was probably made AFTER the last date on the chart.

I've been looking for a birthyear watch for a while now, especially with all this talk flying around. Not real enthused about what I've been seeing recently but hey, half the fun is the hunt.

The Elgin and Hamilton were dated by serial number, while the Gruen was dated by an inscription on the back. In the 1930's there was a style change from highly engraved cases to smoother cleaner lines.

The "New Haven" was dated by looking at the style of the watch. Notice that the watches from the early 1930's still have engraved cases.

Anyway, I decided to have a look at my dad's watch, one that my mother gave him as a wedding gift.

I don't wear it and I really never saw him wear it either, so it lives in the safe.
