A movement shot would help.
I know I have a problem but at least I know what time it started!
Unfortunatelly I am total inexperienced regarding watches. Trying to open it by myself could result in permanent damage of the watch :(
Its probably relatively modern - 17 jewels with a sweep seconds hand. I don't know the brand at all, but the Antichoc shock protection system is commonly (but not exclusively) found in French made watches.
We can't give you any definite information about values - but modern pocket watches from obscure brands are not very collectable.

Many of my pictures were posted via Webshots which has now closed - and so have disappeared from WUS. Sorry.
Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.
I have a couple of Prätinas as well and both have french movements (FE) so - despite the Umlaut in their name (the "Ä"), I think that the brand is probably french. Definitely a modern pocket watch, probably from the seventies.
Thanks, guys! Some other forums told me that it swiss made, probably from 70's. Even if I am not a watch collector, I liked the watch and I bought it today for the equivalent of 8 euro. That's why I asked for the price :) The watch is working well.
Here is the movement (but now I managed to stop the watch, it's not working anymore :( )
LE: Hahahahah, it seems that it has a fake chinese movement inside! :D :D :D
