    Help with 2 pocket watches Ive got from mu grandpa

    Hello all,

    My grandfather passed away and legft me 2 pocket watches. I have no information about them at all. Can you help me ?

    The CIRSA i have no idea about the brand.. no success in my researches, Do u know the brand? year of make and stuff? Have idea about the value? It is working fine.

    the Tissot is not working, The crown is stuck..It does work to set the time, but not to make it work. Any ideas the value?

    Thank you in advance.

    Cirsa was a trademark of C. Ruefli-Flury (connected to - among other brands - Edox)
    Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index

    The movement is by Unitas.

    As to the Tissot, the earliest it can be is 1930 (when the Antimagnetique was introduced), but without a movement pic and a serial number (which will help to date the watch), not much more to say.

    Not this one - even though it bears a superficial resemblance to the Unitas calibres. But this one's by Adolf Schild:
