    H&U Siches Liches Locle?

    Does anyone know anything about this pocket watch? Its is 18k. It says what looks like H&U Liches Locle on the front but inside it looks like H&U Siches Locle. What the heck is going on here lol? I also cant find any reference to either of these names on the internet.

    Exactly, it reads H & U Sichel Le Locle
    Le Locle is a little town in Switzerland, that used to be one of the centres of watchmaking.
    There is a school there where qualified watchmakers can learn the art of restoring antique and complicated watches.

    <complain mode on> its unfortunate that people seem to have become unable to read handwriting <\complain mode off>

    I don't know about your locale, but here in the province of Alberta they have removed the teaching of script writing from the school curriculum. In a generation, cursive will be as indecipherable as latin

    This will present a real barrier to future collectors who wish to research histories. This letter from 1817 is written with the most wonderful penmanship...

    Thanks emka. That S is apparently German cursive. I only know American. I guess I need to brush up on it..
