    A few years back I was into watches in a big way, even learning to do basic none complication watch servicing and repair but it started to get out of hand, too many watches and too much cash outlay! I loved working on vintage Longines watches, they made some of the best watches available in their day and are a joy. This Conquest I bought off eBay, it was in a right state but I managed to fully refurbish it and get it back into running order...still one of my favourites today.







    Look at the balance wheel...

    Well done Neal . Wish I was good at that. Not skilled that way.
    Although all my watches work they all need services alas.

    I’ve looked at them and more of a novelty item/ talking point than a serious timepiece I feel.

    Keep thinking of Hylda Baker in Nearest & Dearest - ‘It’s quarter past... ooh, I must get a little hand put on this watch’

    Think the red dots just a logo or something, they literally just have an hour hand so time shown would be 7:30.

    Been cataloguing my few watches on an American watch site. Seems all they do serial no wise.
    Although Seth Thomas info is hard to come by in sure I have the date for this one somewhere.

    Although it has a badly repaired dial it's still fairly rare, and does work although mainspring is stiff. It was replaced but I thi g the guy made a cock of it. Lol

    It's still a nice watch and feels good in the hand
