Vintage Duo

Happy to receive the Rold Gold 453/3B today. Along with the previously shown referene 6561 stainless steel. It becomes a good pair on my wrist.

I am not able to open the caseback for the rose gold 453/3B. Does anyone know the model number of this? 

Appreciated and sorry for poor pictures. Would like to take 2 nice movement together one day ......

I never knew what the difference between /3B and /3C stood for! Do you know if thats true for all /xB and /xC designations or is it not possible to generalize? BR, Dan
Thanks Alex. The decoration in 453/3C is even better definitely

That cal. 454 with 18 jewels and Geneva Seal looks beautiful!  I'd love to see the cal. 453 as well if you get a chance to open the case back.  The VC Boutique in Kowloon can definitely help you open up the back and take a picture of the movement. Thanks for showing them! Best Regards, Dan
Thanks Dan. it is a good idea to go to VC boutique for assistance

Very nice pieces!! I am filled with hope for the restoration of a watch that I inherited recently. I tried to attach pics, but am obviously a bit new to this and couldn't get them into this post, sorry. It's a Patrimony Traditionnelle Small Seconds Manual Wind, circa 1949 in Stainless steel. Movement is a Cal.453. It needs a setting lever, crown, Number 5 minute marker and a good service and restoration. Any Advice? I have sourced a setting lever from Hovigs in LA, but I have no idea where to get the minute marker I need. Would appreciate any comments. /Users/emilebester/Downloads/DSCN0021.jpg /Users/emilebester/Downloads/DSCN0023.jpg
