What a wonderful collection!!!! I am seriously impressed. I owned a Laco years ago, now I have a Mauthe that I found in virtually new condition.

What I find especially interesting is that I found this watch without a crown. Otherwise it was mint. I am a watchmaker (now retired) so overhauling it and replacing the crown was no problem, except that I had no idea what crown it originally had. I dug through my large stock of spare crowns and picked out something that I felt looked suitable. I am pleasantly amazed to see the picture of your Mauthe and realize that the original crown is virtually identical to the one I (somewhat arbitrarily) picked out from my parts drawer.

Great watches, I am envious of your collection. You have some I have never even heard of, let alone seen.

You have beautiful Mauthe watch, congratulation. I am in search for laco sport and Junghans with white faceplate.

Nice collection Tedi !
Somehow the COMET looks very familiar to me Wink
I am happy that you found a PORTA in the meantime as well.
From my experience it's the rarest one of all the 100.000 km watches.
