    Flea market find

    Found this small swiss travel "clock" with enamel casing and wrist watch movement last Sunday on a local flea market











    Could not resist to get this little wittness of time.

    Neat piece. Do you know anything of the history of such a timepiece? I just bought a 1928 Elgin pocket watch (only 7 jewels) but cranked it up and set it and is only gaining 1 min/day and has ~36 hrs power reserve - pretty amazing given it's age and lack of service.

    Very nice find Mike.
    It looks like late 1920's-early 1930's to me, and epitomises the Art Deco period with those simple, clean lines.

    Thanks for posting it here.

    Cheers, Bob.

    That's pretty neat. I like the 24 hr dial also.

    standing position?

    Do not know anything about the history. Seller grew up in the former GDR, inherited it from his father. Since the watch is swiss made my guess is that it made it to Germany pre WW II or during WW II and served its owner for a long time in the GDR.

    No, covered by a thin chrome plated brass back.

    When doing some research on Eszeha (Karl Scheufele) I came across this colour scheme....thanks to PuristSPro.com

    Mine might be a poor men's copycat of those Scheufele art deco travel clocks.
