Well I no nothing about this brand/watch but know a little about watches and all I can say is WOW...
So many watches.....so little time.....
Very nice watch. Quite rare and expensive. I think a Swiss watch around 1900. Box is from a jeweler , not the watchcompany. Inner glass missing. It seems to have a chronograph function. Peculiar medals on the case. Look a bit Persian.

I can't help much - but I know enough to know that a minute repeater with a chrono function is highly unusual. The little engravings scratched in the cover are marks made by watchmakers to record their work. Unfortunately, there was no standard system - so often we can get no information from them.
Hopefully the experts will be along shortly and we can all learn something about the watch you posted...
Hi I'm completely new to all this as well. This is my first ever post on any forum ever.
i have just opened up Google to search for a watch that I own and after 2 mins of searching I find this and this watch is identical to the one I own apart from mine has a gold dial. Can not believe my luck as I have tried to search this watch a couple of years ago and had no luck.
cant wait to see what people say about this watch.
still can not get over how we both have the same pocket watch and both decide to research them at the same time.
im not to sure on how to upload pictures but if I figure it out then I will post some.
also has a 14k mark in a box also what looks like a squirrel
Inside back cover
also has a 14k mark in a box and also has what looks like a squirrel
cover inside back cover
reads, REPETITION A MINUTES CHRONOGRAPHY
Also has the same numbers, 20211
and also 7 what looks like medals.
also 2 other hallmarks up on the winder / push button. Can't read them!
also has expedition case back. Exactly the same as the watch in pictures.
really would love to find out more on these watches. Age, origin and price would be nice to know too as I have had this watch just sat here in my draw for some time.
watch seams to work perfectly as it should.
thank you to anyone taking the time to read or read and reply.

Wow that is pretty amazing we have the same watch, my great grandfather was from Czechoslovakia. Please send me a email and I can explain how to upload photos would love to see them. [email protected]
this is a hypothesis, but a few details remind me to Invicta, founded by Raphael Picard in 1837
The overall characteristics of the movement lead me to believe that it's probably by Le Phare who specialised in this sort of thing. I can't find an exact match, though.....
A wonderful watch!
