My parents have had this watch for over 20 years and we know its worth alot, But can not find ANY info on it ANYWHERE! My camera is not a good one, so i will tell you what the watch says in each place. The watch is rolled gold or solid gold.
Front(by the hands etc): "THE ROSE"
I can open the back which has 2 hinges. the inside of the back has engravings, a logo, a 7 digit number, and what seems to be a had carved signiture with 3 numbers following:
NEW(an engraved rose)YORK
the hand written engraving says either EDR(then cursive) OR ECK(then cursive) I may be wrong , but it starts with an "E"
right after the signiture or word, it has the number"681" which is also hand carved.
The inside of the watch (where all the parts are) says:
Then it has:
with a row of small boxes underneath and 2 vertical lines in between.
Please help me with whatever knowledge you can! I have been told by a collector to contact the british museum of horology and they can help, but i am too lazy. I would like to find out the info on this watch so i can sell it as i am not a collector, But dont know where to begin with pricing, info etc...
Thanks in advance!
