    Bought a watch in scrap today...

    Bought a very strange pocket watch in scrap today- ill get pics up here soon- it has a 3 bridge movement, is not signed, but it has a crown with a cross and two stars on it on the movement. Any ideas?

    With two stars on the movement, it could be produced by Lanco

    Crown with a cross? Vacheron & Constantin?

    Illinois made some unsigned 3-finger bridge movements....unlikely from what else you've described, though.

    Movement Identification

    I recently aquired a 14Kt Gold pocket watch, and have been getting mixed responses. The watch is VERY old, and unsigned on both the movement and the dial. The only thing I found on the movement was a marking which was a crown, with a cross on it, with two stars, one on each side of the cross. Im putting up a picture in hopes that someone has any ideas. Someone mentioned Lanco, and someone mentioned Vacheron, and another source said the possibility of Patek. This seems to be a watch of good quality, but I cant find any text on the symbol on the movement. The symbol is to the left of the smallest of the three bridges and is hard to see by the pic. I will take out the DSLR and throw up another picture.
