So a novice trying to describe the visible features will seldom mention anything that is sufficiently unique to tell one watch from another.
While the initial release of the database is still being filled in with details, the listings are not totally comprehensive.Should you require a more conclusive valuation of your time piece then please do not hesitate to To determine the approximate age of your watch, open the case and find the serial number, usually found engraved on the movement or the case back itself, then match it up with the list on this page.Cross reference the Movement number with the case number to find the time scale of when your watch was produced. This is probably the most common question watch collectors have.Sometimes it is easy to answer, and sometimes it is impossible.To get better results from trying to describe your watch to anyone, here are some tips: OMEGA keeps excellent records on all the watches they have made.As of March 2004, OMEGA has added an outstanding feature on their official website.An extremely common question is someone wanting to know specifics about a watch they have or have seen.Often, the person will try to identify what they have by describing what it looks like.I am slowly adding serial number tables to this site. With the exception of BULOVA, the numbers on the inside and outside of the CASE ITSELF are ONLY for identification purposes - they mean nothing.Serial number records are available for many of the old pocket watch companies like AM Waltham, Elgin, South Bend etc. The number you need is the serial number stamped on the MOVEMENT (i.e the inner workings).
