    Does anyone know anything about this pocket watch?

    Hello everyone!

    I am a totally new member of this forum. I signed up to ask you if anyone could tell me anything about this pocket watch. I turned 16 today, and as a gift i inherited it from my mom, and i am the 4th generation to be in possesion of it. I have attached some pictures of it, and if anyone wonders, it's a hinged back & bezel pocket watch, but the front part is totally removeable. The zoomed in pictures are from inside the back case. Thank you very much for any help in advance!

    P.s I don't know if the "L. W. B." StandstStands for, but I think that it is either the brand or the initials of the first owner.

    Welcome Simen and I hope we can lid a few secrets of your hairloom Mr. 4 generation . On the top of the macros there are the swiss silver marks and 800, the german crown for silver follows and the number is the the casenumber of the maker. Therefore it just tell us tht you've a watch with a 800 silver case. The case is probably produced in switzerland and for the german market.
    THe hole watch seems to have a red gildet edge. This style was very popular around 1910/25 and its called gallone. Tee email dial and the way the numbers are writen including 13-24 match also with the fashion around 1915/20. I guess on the dial s written " LWC " and not B. I think it match with Langendorf Watch & Co switzerland. Unfortunately I can't find a matching logo but others will know.
    The movemet behind the dustcover will tell us more. Just look on other threads. It would be gread if you can manage to make a picture of the heard of your heirloom.
    The gildet chain looks american. But pocket watches in this aera were always sold without chain. Merchendise of "orginal straps" was not made-up those times. Therefore a "orginal" chain doesn't excist and you can take what ever you like as your ancestor has done.

    Kind regards Silke
