    20231106_120144.jpg 20231106_120118.jpg 20231106_115940.jpg I recently acquired a job lot of old watches from a retired watchmakers inventory. The vast majority, literally 99.9 % was pure junk but this little Peerex intrigued me. Even though the dial is heavily patinated, there is something about the blue steeled hands, and steel case that makes me feel its worth saving. The movement is decent quality too but what is it. The information I have found suggested that Peerex often used Buser movements but so far I have been unable to identify it as such. I need a stem and a crown. If I could get these I maybe tempted to try a restoration. If anyone recognises this movement I would be grateful.

    I think it is a Buser, maybe cal 26. What is the diameter?

    And FWIW, here is the only mikrolisk entry for Peerex. It doesn't mean much to me, unfortunately.

    No there isn't a great deal of information out there on the brand. My intention is to attempt to clean the dial and see what I am left with. If I bungle it then hey ho but if I can improve it somewhat I shall purchase a stem and crown so then at least its complete. I just can't live with that much patina.

    From my experience, there are definitely people who would appreciate that dial.

    It actually looks better in the photo than it does in the metal. I know what you mean though.
