This pocket or pendant watch you can see in the pictures has been in my family for four generations. It belong to my grandmother's mother. Well, since my grandmother was born in 1904 and she was the youngest among her siblings, I assume the watch was purchased in late 1800s.
It was made for the Ottoman market, thus the Arabic dial. it is in a beautiful 14 K gold case. Sadly, It is missing three things.
1. The crystal is gone, but thankfully the dial has no faults, not even hair lines. My watch guy said, finding a crystal is not very hard.
2. The diamond is missing from the hour hand, which again is not very important.
3. The Escapement Wheel is broken. I bought an old Remontoir mechanism once just to realize that it was too big. Now, Ebay has quite a lot of Remontoir, but I am very much novice to the watch collecting and repair. Could you please tell me what I can do to find the correct Escapement Wheel.
I would also love to hear what more you have to say about this watch. Such as year it was made, is it Swiss and etc.
I suppose it was made for the a little richer ones back then? My paternal grandmother and her family was from a well known Greek Orthodox family, thus they were able to afford this maybe?
Thank you a lot
