Longines is especially proud of this ambassador of genius, who incidentally owned a second watch made by the same manufacturer.

Albert Einstein indeed owned a Longines pocket-watch dating from 1943 which is now in the History Museum in Berne (Switzerland).

Some brands are documented well enough to establish a rough date of manufacture by production years of a particular model. On The Dash, which might just be the best Heuer resource out there, has entire lists of various references of particular model lines, with production years given.

Although Omega is documented well enough to date their watches by serial numbers, the reference numbers can be looked up in the Omega Vintage Database. Even if you know the movement serial, with a researchable reference number you can check if the case, movement, and dial are a match.

As you can see, there are quite a few methods for dating a watch.

If you can fit roughly 2 mm of the tip in the casing, then the screwdriver fits.If there are official resources, they usually make their way into the Internet and therefore aren’t hard to look up.High-end brands like Patek Philippe or Vacheron Constantin kept (and keep) excellent records, and the serial number tables are available alright.Longines makes quartz watches, which are battery powered, and automatic watches, which are wound automatically when worn.You only need to remove the back of the watch to replace the battery or clean the inside, something that is fairly easy to do.
