    Sorry, by "date a vintage Lucien ..." I meant figure out when the watch's date, when it was made, not how to set the date on the watch, which is actually pretty simple to do. I am aware, unfortunately, that a lot of people ask some pretty boneheaded questions, which might be why you thought I needed to know how to set the date.

    Thanks lots. That's exactly what I needed to know, and hadn't been able to find. All I could find that was from the company was a blurb about Piccard. I got ambushed by a sudden need for cash, and am trying to sell my 1966 gold filled Bulova Railroad Approved Accutron 214 on Ebay. I'm asking for probably more than Ebayers will pay, although it'd be worth it to a real Accutron collector, and if I can't get what I need to get there's no sense in selling the watch I've been restoring, at considerable expense and with a lot of effort, for anything less. So I decided to add the Lucien Piccard for free as a sort of bonus, and I want to be able to put the date it was made in the listing, since I'm calling it "vintage".

    Yes. Exactly the info I needed and couldn't find.

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.

I have a lucien piccard watch, purchased probably in the 70's. Would it be water resistant?


Yes, I think that your Lucien Piccard Watch is water resistant until now as long that the gasket of the caseback is still intact. and for you to find out that the gasket of your watch is still intact then, you should bring your watch to the expert to check your watch gasket. i hope i solve your problem.

My new lucien Piccard 28116BK will not run. It is an automatic winder. If I swing it back and forth the the main wheel will start oscillating but will stop again in about a minute. I've tried to wind it...


You should be able to wind it manually. Pull out the crown to the winding position and wind fully. With any automatic watch you should do a manual wind periodically.

How do i get my Lucien Piccard 26570SL Automatic running?


You have to wind the watch first. Pull out the crown (the knob on the right side of the watch) to the intermediate position (the winding position will not move the hands or the date so this is how you know that you are in the correct place. Most watches have 3 positions where you can set the date, time, and wind it) and wind the watch. It will need to be re-wound every 24-48 hours.
