    Alsta Pocket Watch?

    I tried a search up top but found nothing. My mom found this pocket and she is sending it to me from Calif., so I can't get a movement pic at this time. She took these pics for me but she don't know anything about getting to the movement. Lol I really didn't find anything on-line about an alsta pocket watch either. I'm thinking just a generic watch? Anyone know more than that?
    Thanks, Bobby

    Looks relatively modern. Mikrolisk shows Alsta as a New York based importer. Looks more 'authentic' than many of the more modern watches, but given that it has incabloc I would guess 1960's or newer and likely a Unitas movement - but I'm just guessing as I know little about these modern pocket watches. So I'd agree generic but likely nicely reliable.

    Looks beautiful!
