    Most Swiss watches from the 19th century are a riddle wrapped up in an enigma as they are not signed on the movement or case. The movement is useful in determining an approximate age based on its design and a sharp close-up of your movement would help with an ID.

    I see that you have posted this on another thread and Herrn Richter has given you a very good answer.

    What I meant is the tiny pictorial hallmarks on the inside of the outer back cover. These usually help identifying age and provenance. I have no experience there but others here do. They would need good, clear pictures, though.....

    Here's a little article that explains Hallmarks Basic Hallmarks Identification after reading it you'll understand what we're looking for. Marrick had posted a link for Swiss Hallmarks but it's dead.
