Here is one I bought about 12 years ago with intentions of selling it because it was so good looking and had a case that had been altered with fancy extended lugs. What I did know the movement is in need of help and we cannot find a movement like this for parts. Anyway my watchmaker has given up so Let me pass it along to someone who has the time and patients to tackle this task. I can get it to run a couple clicks but that is all. The second hand has fallen off a couple times so it needs to be tightened but movement has a good pinion. I am getting too old to keep these projects so I am selling them so when I go to the watch heaven my wife will not have to deal with them. Here is a attractive watch that I think will be worth the effort and time. The case measures 34.5 mm from side to side and 48 mm lug end to lug end so it is a good size. Selling this AS IS so your risk.
17 jewel manual wind movement that has just been serviced it is running well and keeping good time. Silver dial with gold numbers, gold markers and gold hands. 10 kt. yellow gold plated fancy case top with stainless steel back. The movement is marked Illinois Watch Co Swiss. The case back is marked Illinois. Illinois watch co was sold to Hamilton Watch Co and many of this type watch were sold, I think to use the cases that had been made with the Illinois marked back. Some say it is not collectable but I think they are wrong and not considering the history of this and other Hamilton/Illinois watches. This one is very nice and is a good running and good looking watch. New black leather band. It measures 22 mm. across and 37 mm. lug end to lug end. Cir. 1940's/50's.
This is the same movement the United States military chose to issue to their servicemen during the second world war. This 17 jewel cal. 987A manual wind movement has recently been serviced so it is running well and keeping good time. Sterling silver dial with 18k gold applied numbers and gold plated hands. Dial shows a little age but it is over 70 years old and better to keep the original than to refinish as this is a part of history. 10 kt. yellow gold filled case with yellow gold filled back. Original tan leather band is marked "Hamilton" on the back. This watch measures 28 mm. across and 36 mm. lug end to lug end. Made in 1941 so this is before they made them big so this is a original military size.
14 kt. solid yellow gold case with solid yellow gold back that has a inscription on the outside that reads "Max Klein". This tank watch has a 21 jewel cal. 559 manual wind movement just been serviced it is running well and keeping good time. Rose colored dial with black numbers and black hands. New black leather band.

Ken Cooper our best and outstanding west coast manager spends lots of time in the local pub and says he reads the internet to discover where some of my listings come from and here is one he says is not a spoof, I am not sure what do you think ? Girard
Russell Prize worked as a janitor in Cat City's largest and highest office building. Russell's wages were great and with them and his thrifty way of living he was able to purchase a gold Cyma timepiece which he wore everyday & saw to its service every 3 years. One late evening Russell had forgotten his Cyma watch at home and only remembered that while his working on the 55th floor of the tall office building. Russell was a good worker, but very curious when cleaning offices, and now while in the CEO's office of a large cat food company, Russell dropped a glass framed photo of the CEO smiling broadly and broke it in several places. Quickly thinking he got his tube of "super glue" from his janitors cart & soon had the glass frame fixed but he also had "super glue" all over both of his large hands. Heading for the rest room to clean his hands he noticed one of the large windows was still open. Shutting the window he was startled to notice he was stuck to the large glass pane. Trying to pull free he found that wouldn't work so he pushed hard against the window and to his amazement the window & himself "popped out" from the frame & began a plunge into open space. As he & the glass window plunged downward he thought the end was near but a gust of wind suddenly caused him to glide towards the large lake that boarded Cat City. Finding he could control the glass pane somewhat like a kite he relaxed & enjoyed the view as he soared high over the lake. Suddenly, the wind gusts stopped blowing & Russell plunged towards the lake at a rapid rate and struck the lake's surface with a big impact, however at the last moment Russell released a large blast of methane glass which slowed the impact into the lake. Russell was trapped under the glass & below the waterline. Struggling to turn over the glass pane Russell quickly exhausted his air and soon drowned. It was a baffled water patrol crew that discovered Russell's body & city officials quickly explained his death was due to an accidental drowning but did not address why he was stuck to a pane of glass. City officials did re-name the lake "Glass Lake." Again, somehow & in some way Girard obtained the Cyma watch & now offers it for sale at an attractive price.

Again Ken Cooper has spent many hours in the wine country searching the history of this watch so here is what he has to say about this Movado, Thank You Ken, great job.
Peter "The Piper" Pepper was restless upon completing his lengthy education and his very wealthy father, Graham Gus Pepper, presented him with this Movado "Series 800 Sub Sea" wristwatch and an open plane ticket to anywhere in the world. Days later Peter traveled to a very tiny country, that is almost unknown, located close to Tibet & Nepal. It didn't take him very long to fall deeply in love with the simple style of living and the rugged beauty of this obscure country. Quickly he learned to speak like a native, after all "The Piper" had an IQ of 160, and he established a small school for all the children in the village. As the earth turned many times Mr. Pepper gave his parents his jewelry and swell Movado watch when they made their only visit to try and talk "The Piper" into coming home. He told his father he wanted nothing from the famous Pepper estate (The family was big in Turnips) and upon their passing to please give their wealth to the common people where they resided. Years later his father attended a huge jewelry & watch show in Cat City and sold "The Piper's" items. This wonderful, hardly worn Movado was sold to a Mr. Girard Sensoli of Pinckney, MI. Before leaving the show Graham Pepper drank a couple of cups of a very relaxing herbal tea brewed by Girard. They discussed life, children, good diets, and watches. Girard has listed this Movado timepiece at a very attractive price. This is an investment for your future and a great timekeeper. Ask about placing this masterpiece of time keeping on Girard's very unique layaway plan and own a watch for the ages. Also ask Girard about his unique & very special herbal diet plan as he will be happy to share it with you and check the lay-away-plan at Girard's.
I think this was worn during the second world war, it has a 17 jewel manual wind Swiss made Longines movement has just been serviced it is running well and keeping good time. The dial was so bad that I had to send it to refinish. Now it has a silver dial with luminous numbers and blue/black hands with luminous centers. Chrome plated case case with stainless steel screw on back. This case top has some pitting that seems to be on most of the military watch cases made during that time. New brown leather band. Larger than most of the military watches from that period that were used on watches from the USA. This measures 33 mm. across and 41 mm. lug end to lug end. Cir. 1940's.
Mr. Ken Cooper is back to work. Our very best but only West Coast Salesman once again has spent so many of his hours to discover the history of this watch so here he goes.....
Mr. Ulysse Rodut had seen a rough & tumble life and now was enjoying a somewhat better lifestyle. After fighting in WW II with the US Army in North Africa, Italy, and France as a member of the infantry he was so glad at war's end to have survived. He had never been wounded nor seriously ill like so many members of his unit. He was just a "Dog Face Soldier" that believed his good luck was due to his Army issue Longines watch that he NEVER took off his massive wrist. Now many, many years later he was strutting down main street without a care until he remembered he left his "lucky" Longines WW II watch on his desk at home. Almost immediately Ulysee heard a loud "Bang" and saw a huge city bus that had somehow flipped over and was skidding his way. Hours later Ulysee awoke in the intensive care unit of the city's run down hospital with tubes going in and out of his badly broken body. Days later he was informed by a local attorney (Simon Sly) the bus had struck him head on and he needed, through the lawyer, to file a law suit against the city as he was not expected to live due to the massive damage his body had received from the city bus. Telling the attorney to file the law suit for him and also call his long time girl friend, a Miss Wanda Nod, to hurry and visit with him before he departed this earth. Before he expired, Mr. Rodut married Miss Nod, and almost a year later his widow, Mrs. Wanda Rodut, finally received a very large payment from the city for the accident. Wanda was delighted and Mr. Rodut's attorney, Simon Sly, was pleased for his large and somewhat excessive fees collected in the law suit. Years later Wanda Rodut sold the battle worn Longines timepiece to Girard's watches. Girard had the watch gone over by his watchmaker and soon it was restored to the condition now shown on Girard's website. If you ask Girard when purchasing this piece of history about what he thinks of the Longines Girard may reply that he feels this Longines may be a "Luck Piece" to wear daily as he has such a good feeling every time he looks and
handles this WW II Longines.
