    Confused Help identify this pocket watch please AJ & Co

    Hi, I purchased this pocket watch from a small dealer in Glasgow, Scotland (for a very small fee). It isn't working, but I it is an interesting piece.

    Could anyone give me any information about it?

    Hi you have a low jewelled Swiss made, full plate keywind watch which has been made to 'satisfy the tastes' of the
    UK market.
    These were imported into the UK in large numbers in the latter half of the 19thC and were far cheaper than UK made watches.
    The case seems to be white metal and AJ&Co could be the case maker. These are mostly 'unsigned' sometimes a retailer would add their name to the dial.

    Hi Radger,

    Thank you for the information. I was sold this piece by an old collector for around £4 :) makes and intersting subject to take apart and work on. Quite a heavy watch and is well beyond repair, but a nice one for my collection.

    Thanks again,

    David
