    HOLY F. S. engraved watch.

    I just got this watch from a friend. It is engraved, no markings on the mechanism. It only has this HOLY F S on it. I cannot say who made the movement. I think I found who engraved it. I quote

    Information from obtained from Forrer:

    Holy Freres (i.e. "Holy Brothers") was a firm which was established in 1893 at St. Imier in Switzerland. The brothers, Franz Holy & Jules Holy directed it. They were watch-case manufacturers & diesinkers.

    They eventually branched out into medal making. Forrer lists a number of medals and it appears the firm was most active in medal making from 1903-1911 (some medals are undated and might have been produced later).

    The dial has only one minor chip. It works and keeps time accurately. Only a 2 min/day off or less.

    It has a name on the dust lid Xilgut Kilman or something and underneath it Budapest

    Can somebody help me put a price on it?

    Hi there.

    Sorry - but we do not attempt valuations in this forum. There is a sticky explaining why.

    This is what we recommend:

    Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects."

    Will Rogers (1879 - 1935)

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.
