    Help with id.

    I have an old pocket watch. It has no name on it. The hands are a copper color. It has a second hand dial. The main hands look a bit like a Base guitar without strings and have little curls in the center. It is key wound. It has serial numbers 42375, underneath that a 9 and a stamp which is what looks to be a pheasant inside a rounded upside down triangle. It also has a stamp in a rounded rectangle with the bird on it, inside the numbers 0,800 . The outside of the watch has was appears to be a European type rendering of a bird. Some Castles or houses on the bottom half ingraved. The other side is engraved with what looks to be feathers. Along the rim are flowers. The key has a gold looking top and the post of the key looks silver. Does anyone have a clue as to where it was made. How old, or even a suggestion on Country. I cannot find a way to add a picture or I would.

    I did the best I could with the pictures. I can try again if these are not good enough for identification. That little rounded triangle has a bird in it. It is so tiny, I can only see it with the magnifier...then again, I am old, and using those cheater glasses to even read my email.
    Thank you for your help with uploading pictures. New at this.

    If the bird is a grouse, that is a Swiss hallmark. The .800 means its 80% pure silver.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    If you have a website I can visit to find the value I would appreciate it. I did find an x within the triangle with the grouse. Maybe someone knows.
