You may have arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet,make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
Don't forget to rate, please.

Hi!

You can't tell actually the date when it is manufactured by the serial number of the case metal.

However if you manage to open the backside and look in the inside there will be markings that will help in the dating of the watch.. Look at the image below for example
alpug_18.jpg
as soon as you open the back case there is a symbol (pointing by red arrow) that was being used that time for dating.

From the table below.
alpug_19.jpg
Dating at the early 50's are different. 2 digits printed on the backcase signifies the date manufactured.

L indicates 50's
M indicates 60's
N indicates 70's

so if you see a 2 digit stamped on the backcase for example is L2
then it means it is made on 1952.

You will not find this information unless there is a 2 digit on the backcase or you will find a geometric symbol inside the case of your watches.

I hope this helps
Please accept if you find this solution helpful

SOURCE: whats the value serial number 980512 lucien piccard

Probably not what you paid for it, sad to say. So many were made, and with the recession and the advent of a reliable timepiece in everyone's pocket anyway, the collector's market for elegant wristwatches has declined somewhat. It also varies dramatically depending on what kind of market you're selling in. Pawnbrokers, jewelers, and watch collectors all have different ideas of how to determine a piece's value. Condition and provenance also play a large part of any appraisal. I wouldn't accept less than $250 if I were you, but I wouldn't expect more than $500. In the long run, your best bet to have it keep its' value would be to keep it until it can be classified as vintage or an antique. Once most of the other Lucien Piccard watches that were made at the same time as it was have failed, been melted for gold or lost, the value will start to go up again, and if you or your family can keep it for a VERY long time indeed, then it's definitely possible to make a profit on a watch.

Value for 28116BK


about $100.

Lucien Piccard is a brand with distant Swiss heritage, which now has the same address as Invicta, SWI group, Stuhrling/Akribos and World of Watches. Asian manufacture and always a deep "discount" from list price. This isn't to say that they don't have some great looking watches, only intended as a bit of background to the company.

It's rarely possible to give any kind of definitive valuation without seeing a watch (pocket or wrist) in person, but it sounds like you have an inexpensive pocket watch that was probably made in the 1960s, less likely made in the 1970s or 1950s. The use of the term "antimagnetic" on the watch, as opposed to "17 jewels," suggests that the watch is powered by a 1-3 jewel pin lever movement, rather than a more expensive movement. These movements can keep quite good time, but they are not valued by watch collectors unless the rest of the watch is of compelling interest.

In terms of value, your pocket watch has more value as a piece of jewelry than as a vintage timepiece. Most watch collectors would not be particularly interested in your watch. In the United States, I've seen similar watches, in running condition, sell for $5-10 at vintage watch fairs. Around where I live (the Northeast), as a piece of jewelry, your watch may be worth twice that but not more. I cannot speak to pricing in other parts of the country or internationally.

Dennison gold watch ladies 466693 F any value or scrap


There is always more value if you sell the watch complete with case, even if it is not in working order. Good watchmaker will repair it and then sell for a quite a profit. As a scrap you will get just scrap value for the gold weight itself. Most of the jewellers/shops will tell you there are no reason to repair watch and you can sell the gold case only. Do not be catched on this, as this is how they do fool people. Shop around and find the decent watchmaker - he/she will repair watch and you will be able to sell it with some profit for yourself. In watchmaking business it is reasonable to repair the watch if the cost of repair do not exceed 70% of the watch's value. Rate me, plz.

American Waltham pocket watch


Ebay often has these for sale; one I also inherited in an 18K gold 'hunters case' (closes from and back) even though perfectly working after a retired jeweler brought it back to life, turned out to be more valuable for its case than anything else. I've seen similar at swap meets/flea markets in plated cases for as little as $70 and still ticking.

Lucien piccard watch


The arrows you are seeing are for sizing the band. I cannot find 26311SS in my data base, but I have a good idea what you need to do. The curved piece is a safty that goes over the clasp. Take something like a round toothpick and with the curved piece going to the right like this: ( put the toothpick under the far lefthand side, in the middle and see if you can pry it up ,( I say use a tooth pick so not to scratch up your watch) it should flip over to the right.Check and see if there are any spring loaded buttons on either side of the clasp, if there is push them in ,and lift to your left If there is no buttons just pry up towards your left. If this dosn't work PLEASE let me know, and I will find the exact watch and we can go from there. Good luck!!
