My first posting here and I hope some of you far more knowledgeable people can help identify my family watch, which has come into my possession.
It was my fathers and before that my Grandfathers and before that my Great Grandfathers, I am not sure if it goes back any further than that. so furthest i could take it back to is approx. WW1 era.
I cannot find a makers mark and don't know how to take it apart any further than in the photos.
I was informed by my Grand Father when it was still in his possession that it is chain driven, but I have no idea how to confirm this apart from taking it to a watch maker to look at.
It is currently not running smoothly, it will wind and run in spurts and slowing unwind but it may take several days to just get through an hour or two.
I would like to get it back into running order and get the face smartened up as it is well "loved".
The chain is believed to be contemporary.
Any help very gratefully received.
