This is something really interesting from BlancPain that I have never seen before, it is an automatic Movement marked R563. The dial is marked Blancpain Since 1735 and is a really cool textured gold with date then marked Swiss at the 6 oclock mark under the date. The Dial measures 27.9mm. The watch itself starts to work when you shake it but since there is no stem and crown included there is no way to know if it keeps time or runs for a long time. The watch movement looks to be high quality build and finish and 17 jewels.The rotor is marked Blancpain Rayville S. This movement came out of a watchmakers estate along with some other Blancpain parts (not included in this listing, what you see in the pictures including the metal case is included only). I was not able to find any reference to this movement/caliber or what watch it belonged to with any research I performed. We are not professional or experienced graders, the condition we note is just based on what we think is the reasonable condition of the item, you need to look at the pictures and decide for yourself. Please examine all photos as they are part of the item description. If I have missed any information in the description it is not intentional.

In General Mechanical and vintage watches need maintenance and servicing, buyers should expect to have to bring these watches into a watchmaker the same as changing the oil in your car to keep it running although not as often as a car. Mechanical watches are prone to damage if you hit them to hard, drop them, shake them to hard or exert any excessive force on them these have fine moving parts that are often moving at a high speed actions such as using a mechanical watch when hammering things or punching things..These are examples only and. How do vintage watches keep time? Vintage mechanical watches do not keep exact time like its quartz counterparts, expect that watches that we list as working and keeping time unless otherwise specified run +/. 1-3 mins a day, we consider this to be acceptable for most vintage watches. Note: we do not time our watches to seconds lost or gained in a day. If the watch in the listing says its tested then I have manually wound the watch and watched it for at least 12 hours. I do not have any sort of automatic watch winder to test automatic functions, generally unless stated I have only done a manual wind test.
If it is an automatic I will generally shake the watch until it starts ticking and then watch it for an hour. After that I will do the manual wind test as per above unless otherwise specified. Vintage watches and mechanical watches need to be services often by a watchmaker to keep them running, similar to your car and oil changes. Unless specified in the listing watches are not serviced and will need to go to a watchmaker for a checkup and service to be good time keepers and continue running smoothly.
I cannot change those numbers. Thank you if you have read everything to this point! Please feel free to ask any questions you may have and ill be happy to answer them.Good luck, and God bless!
