    Hello, I was wondering if any of you gentlemens can help me ID this movement. The watch has a private label " G.Seifert & Sons , Quebec".
    This is a jeweler who was active in the early 1900's here in
    Quebec City,Canada.
    The case is 44mm wide and movment is 36mm wide. Case is gold filled. Movement is 19 jewels, Adjusted pinion signed G.Seifert & Sons".
    Serial # 2192465. Chaton set jewels. Missing part of the regulator.
    Working and keeping good time.
    Thank you for you time.

    Hmm...the plate finishing reminds me of some Longines I've seen, and I know they were big into jobber watches at the turn of the century. The serial would seem to fit as well, as that would date it to 1902. Can't match it to a specific model though.

    You could always try sending the serial number to Longines; they'll tell you what the caliber is, who they sold it to and when. That'll probably confirm the ID.

    Thanks Shangas. The watch is a keeper. It represents an historical landmark for my city. I'm trying to pick up all the private labels of jewelers from my city. If any of you guys have a private label pocket watch signed "Cyrille Duquet" , please let me know.
    AbslomRob , I send Longines the info and see what they've got. Thanks

    Pilotswatch, you should be very, very, very proud to own such an absolute stunner! How old is this watch? It's certainly one of the more beautiful and unique pocket watches I've seen...and I've seen lots! That caseback is just...a work of art in and of itself...

    You said the case is gold-filled, but to what content? 12? 10? 14kt? Is it marked to wear for any period of time?

    Thanks again Shangas. I'm very proud. That is why I want to know more about the movement. As AbsolmRob says,if it's a Longines movement, it would date around 1902. As for the gold content,there is no inscription on the case. I guest it gold-filled because of the different colors it has from the inside and outside of the case.
