    Antique English 18K Hallmarked Pocket Watch Info

    Good evening,
    I've just purchased this watch, along with 18K chain, and 18K Masonic fob. I'm trying to identify the movement maker, initials in script and number beside. Any input greatly appreciated. I believe the hallmarks are for 1836.
    Regards, Danny

    Nice one!

    No way to find a maker here. The watch was made at a time, where you mostly don't find a name anymore engraved on the dial of (technically) simpler watches. Too many standard parts and procedures and less individual work. The 'initials' left from the number are simply an ornamented type of 'No' (number).

    18K gold, London, 1836.

    We cold however say more about the maker of the case, but I can't clearly identify the initials. Is it 'W.K' or 'W.R.'? W.R. leads me to William Russell, Coventry.

    Text added: Engraved on the movement, not on the dial.

    Many thanks for the input, the initials look like "W.R." to me. The inside case has the same initials a little easier to see.
