After a week of communicating, we met up in March 2010 and quickly fell in love.
Having traveled to this part of the world, I can tell you that Malaysian women are beautiful.
The Bulova and Hamilton stepped cases shown here on the left are a perfect example of this.
Men were preferring tank watches, however only round movements were available, therefore the case was stepped to accomodate the movement and make the watch APPEAR to be square. Even though watches were fairly small back then, the designs were bold and more masculine than before. A few words that sum up the 1950's are Futuristic, Automation, and expressive.
This is probably the most common question watch collectors have.
There are several ways to get an idea of when your watch was made.
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).
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.
