I have had a watch for around 20 years in a sock in a safe and last night I said I wonder what this watch even is. My uncle gave it to me years ago and said he “Got it from the war.”
Here is the write up from the most detailed write up I found translated.
Description: Metal pocket watch with the designation "Arbeiter Chronometer", with patent specification, the work bowl is decorated in relief representation of three men, on the edge inscription: "Workers of all countries unite in defense of your rights", on dial Lunette: "We want 8 hours to work - 8 hours to train us - 8 hours to rest us, "Enamel dial with Arabic numerals, small seconds, gold plated hands, gilded movement with Roskopfhemmung, intact (4758), D = 53 mm
Can any of you guys tell me anything about it? I have found VERY little about it on the internet. I'm just as interested in its story as it's value.
thank you for any help you can offer
