Hello, I recently acquire an old pocket watch, is very small and the dial is signed HY Moser Escalape.
What really calls my attention is that the second hand moves like a quartz watch, it pauses every second, unlike normal mechanical watches, where the second hands moves at a constant speed.
I tried to find some information in google and it says this brand was founded by a Russian watchmaker that went to live in Switzerland, but I am not sure about the age of this particular watch.
I would like to know more about this movement, is the first time I see that mechanism. The watch works but the dial is rusty, the case seems to be silver.
Looks like it's been years since the movement was serviced, so I will have to clean it. I have cleaned and oiled old American pocket watches, but I am not sure on how to proceed with this one.
