    Finding the date a pocket watch was made.

    I have a Choisi, Swiss PW.

    Cover states:
    700 JAHRE | ANS | ANNI | ONNS
    1291-1991
    "CONFOEDERATIO HELVETICA"

    The back:
    "RUTLISCHWUR 1291"

    (see pics below)









    And if anyone can tell me what this is trying to say?..what events etc?

    Thanks.

    It was made in 1991 to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the founding of the Swiss confederation. I.e. Switzerland as a country. Precise date: 1. August 1291, now the Swiss national day.

    Also i.e.: it is a modern pocket watch, probably with an ETA Unitas 6497 movement:
