    Help identifying this Rolex Pocket Watch

    Hello, I have a few pocket watches that belonged to my grandfather, and although I own a few modern watches and like to be informed, pocket watches are a complete mistery to me. I would like to know your opinion on this watch and maybe if you can help me identify what kind of watch it is. Here go some pictures.

    Looks possibly like one of the Cortebert-made movements from the 1930s or 1940s.

    Nice looking old pocketwatch.

    Clean and maybe a polish would make a nice conversation piece or buy a bell display unit for display

    Thank you? Do you think the dial is in original form?

    I see the 616 and 618 have 17 jewels, but this one has 15. I cannot find which movement is this one exactly. Anyone has any ideas?

    Cortebert Rolex 616, 618 or other?

    Hello, I got some help the other day but I still cant find exactly which movement is this one. This one has 15 jewels, and the engravings do not match exactly the movements i was able to find online. Anyone has any ideas? Thank you.

    I think the movement I showed you is basically correct. 15 vs. 17 jewels probably represents different versions, and the engraving is unique to each manufacturer.

    can you measure it, I don't think it is a 618 or 622 - the cock differs. I think this is a bit larger.
