    Help Pleese

    When my father passed I was given a pocket watch that he was heard to have purchased from Straw-bridges Clothier. The pocket watch is brass with a flower type design on the back and says Jubilee on the face. It does not work and was trying to get it fixed. I have search the internet and Can not find any information on Jubilee watch company other then its french. Might anyone be able to give me any additional information on it?

    Condolences for your father pass away. As for the watch, when you post some photos, especially of the movement inside the case, believe me you will receive more information.

    Not to assist you wrong, lets start with front, back and side photos. Most pocket watches case backs are generally able to be popped out when used a sharp edged tool between the case and case back or they can be opened even without tools with pulling, depends on the case. To be at the safe side better to see first the photos to ensure its not a another case.

    Let's hope it isn't a screw back.
