Picked at, what I call, the "Great East Texas Jewelry Hoard." Back story: This jewelry hoard is located inside an antique shop in a small town in Texas and owned by a man who bought and sold for many years. He admitted to have no interest in jewelry; and, as such, stored it all away in boxes that he agreed to let me sort through to my heart’s content. As he puts it, “…mostly estate sales and local people who needed some money. I haven’t a clue what’s there. It’s been more than 20 years, I guess." I feel honored to be able to pick through some of those boxes (albeit, with lots of wet wipes and sanitizer) and to spent a full day sorting through only a small portion of them. Can't wait to do it again (after I finish up with this batch, or course)!
So the reality is that I know absolutely nothing about timepieces. But I know a whole lot of you do. I am selling these together only because they were found together. Both do not work and are good for harvesting or repair.
The Geneva watch has a modern design and is missing it's windup stem. Removing the back plate you can see stamped "Win Fair Co. Hong Kong" and on the back of the mechanics it reads "No Jewels Unadjusted Hong Kong Japanese Parts" and "Aphel Co., Ltd." The gold plating is excellent and the little crystal rhinestones are white and bright. It measures 1" wide and 1-1/4" tall.
The Infinity watch has a very old fashion style with antique silver metal, Roman numerals and script type. The back is stamped "Stainless Steel Back", "Infinity Japan Quartz Movt" and "Base Metal Bezel". On the inside it is stamped "Push" with an arrow, "No Jewels", and "1 YI2IE Shiojiri, Ltd. Japan II". There is space for a battery, but it doesn't work when one is put in. It also measures 1" wide and 1-1/4" tall.
