    I need help and info

    I have just inherited a golden pocket watch with the inscription:
    Ancre Spiral Breguet
    PACEMAKER
    16 Rubis

    I would really appreciate any info you may have on this watch. I have taken some pictures with my cellphone, so forgive me if the picture quality is not impressive.

    The watch seems to work, and it's generally in pretty good condition. The weight is 70 grams , and the gold is 14 carats.

    How much would a watch like this be worth? I don't think it's an original Breguet because inscriptions like "Ancre Spiral Breguet" are not common on original breguets (to MY knowledge)

    Thanks in advance

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

    'Spiral Breguet' refers to the watch having an overcoil hairspring, which is a technology invented by Breguet (hence it is sometimes called a Breguet hairspring) to achieve better isochronism as the mainspring unwinds. With sixteen jewels and an overcoil hairspring, this is a comparatively high quality watch.
