    Help needed to identify H.S.H. 18K pocket watch

    Hi everyone. I'm new here so please be gentle... I inherited a gold pocket watch made by H.S.H., but can find virtually no information about the H.S.H. mark on the internet. I have found references to the H.S.H. brand at auction sites, but no information about this maker. Can anyone please help? The watch is 34mm in diameter, the movement 30mm and the watch weighs about 32 grams. (Unfortunately, the glass section on the front flap is cracked.)

    Inscriptions that I can see
    Inside front flap: 15
    Inside back flap: HSH 18K (top) 85215 (bottom)
    Top of movement cover: Examined by Webster Queen Victoria St. London 16621
    Inside of movement cover: 85215
    Movement: HSH

    Hi and welcome! I cannot be helpful at this stage what converns your specific questions. Yes, there are several watches on sale, and I have seen many of those before, where the marking H.S.H. is mentioned, but without any further information who that is.

    Perhaps, you might be interested in this info about Webster in London:

    All I can say is that, even though the watch looks British on the surface of it, it is actually Swiss or was at least made with a Swiss movement. The style of movement was very generic and is from around the middle of the 19th century. It is called the "Lepine IV" style. The "H.S.H." may point to the maker but I can't identify it unfortunately.
