Donations of U.Ströbel-Dettmer

29.10.2016 by Uhrwerksarchiv

U.Ströbel-Dettmer donated a manual wind Seiko ladies' watch, a manual wind Roamer ladies' watch and number of quarz watches in a surprise package. (more)

Here, everything is about mechanical watches and the bricolages to bring defective watches back to life again.

The core of these pages is the movement archive, which offers detailled information and high-res pictures of currently more than 450 different movements.
From the simple pin-lever movement without jewels to a flyback chronograph, there's a wide field of popular and often-used movements in the archive, often with unusual and fancy construction details. The only movement class missing here, are expensive movements, but it is comprehendible, when you take into account, that the price of a single Rolex alone exceeds the value of the whole archive. Nevertheless, I'm glad for all donations.

There's also a small section with datasheets of different movements and manufacturies.

A few watches and articles, I wrote on watch forums can be found on the article pages, on the review pages and in the gallery.

Finally, on this site, you will find my tiny Timex archive.

Have fun!
