    Antique pocket watch Info

    Hello friends, could you help me know more about this watch? I received it as a gift and it must be around 100 years old. Thank you very much!

    Welcome. Marvelous well preserved watch. If everything is solid gold and original it could be quite valuable. You'll have to determine that. There is one on ebay very similar. Corncille.



    from Wikipedia...
    Many French and Swiss pocketwatches after 1860 were stamped on the back with the word Remontoire. This merely meant that they didn't have to be wound with a key (i.e. they were wound by the then-novel winding crown inside the pendant). Etymologically the term is correct, the mainspring is "rewound" by some other force than a key, but these watches usually do not contain a remontoire as the word is used today.[4]

    Two identical threads merged - one should do! Please avoid duplication. Thanks.
