    Help Identify My Late Grandfather's Pocket Watch

    I would appreciate any information you may have regarding my late grandfather's pocket watch. Can you better identify the year of manufacture and type of movement? The number on the front and rear covers is 1141721. Is this a Hunter case or Pair case? Attached are some pictures. Thank you.

    This watch is in a hunter case, most likely its original factory case.

    Note that the case is solid 14K gold (.585 pure, as marked).

    You have quite a watch on your hands---it is a really nice timepiece. :)

    I forgot to add that the watch is missing a case screw, a large-headed screw that keeps the movement tight against the case.
