    Question can somebody help me identify this pocket watch?

    Yesterday I found this pocket watch in a second hand shop and when we opend it we found the brand 17 jewels (red/purple stones), swiss made, some numbers maybe serial numbers phi(?) 92996811 made for hand and 616 6261256 made with a stamp "propably"
    It also says Facit and swiss made on the front. The watch is also pretty small and don't need a battery
    So I wonder if somebody know more about this watch and maybe the year it was made.
    Thanks so much for your time.

    From the size of it, I'd say this is a woman's pendant watch rather than a pocket watch. Most likely it was made in the 1970s or 80s.

    The markings made by hand are most likely a watch repairer's marks but I've no idea what those numbers mean. The stamped numbers would be a case serial number.
