I just bought an older Paul breguette watch. I would like to find out what era it is from (I Am thinking 1960's) and also the possible value. I am not looking to sell it, but I am just interested.

From what I can tell, the watch seems to be stainless steel, it has 17 jewels, and the serial number on the back is 9111907. It does not take batteries, but winds by hand(not automatic). The watch is in very good shape and runs well. It has a few minor scratches on the edge of the glass that you can only see when looking at the watch from the side. (you can't see the scratches looking straight on)


This is not as important, but I would like to find out a little of the history of Paul Breguette watches. I am pretty young and just started getting into antiques, but I have never heard of Paul Breguette. I can not find much information online about him or the watches, such as where they were sold, produced, or designed. If there is anything you can let me know about the history and also the possible price, let me know. Thanks a lot.

Greg

Hi there. Generally speaking, if you can't find any information on a Swiss brand on the internet, it is becuase falls under the "Generic Swiss" category. Paul Breguette is one such brand. What is meant by Generic Swiss,is that generic components are bought, possibly assembled by the maker and then stamped with the maker's name. What influences the value of a 'generic Swiss' watch is what original maker made the movement and to what level of finish was applied to it. From what you seem to have here, is a gold tone ETA which is fairly common, used by 100s of miscellaneous makers.

Sorry I can't directly answer the history of PB, but that's probably there isn't much to be found, as in other 'Genric Swiss' nameplates.

I have aquired a Paul Breguette watch and would like to know if someone could help me identify it. It is 10k gold filled, in a case that pops apart, which reveals 6 small red dots, possibily jewels? It also winds backwards.

Paul Breguette is the name used by Ebel for its american market brand, introduced in 1929. Generic it's not.

I'd need a photo, but from what you are saying value will be low, as is the case with most gold filled watches.

I'd say it you like the watch, go for it as the repair is about what it is worth.
