    A few points make me think that.... the lugs look to be poorly soldered onto the outside of the case (which could have been a later repair - I know). The crown looks like it may be hiding the remaining part of the pendant. The double hinged case back is more normally seen on pocket watches. Of the few trench watches I own (or have seen) with double hinged case backs, they are of high quality with high grade movements... not like the one above.

    Not saying it definitely started life as a pocket watch, but in my opinion, the signs point to a pocket watch conversion. That said, this may have been done 100 years ago... so, historically, it may be interesting in the development story of watches.

    Are there any hallmarks in the case that may help date it?
    Thank you for your response. The only mark in the watch case is a number, "1419".

    Regards,

    Gonçalo

    This looks like the exact same movement as my unidentified pocket watch that I posted yesterday... Link below. I wonder if there is any connection
