    Hi, im very new to this, but anyway, i would like some info on a pocket watch that is possibly around 80years old it is a swiss made moeris watch. im from Australia and so far all the info i have found is american and the closest i have gotten to my watch is an egyptian one.

    it has the following numbers:
    on the inside of the first panel: 4519986
    on the oustide of the second panel: BB 7176H SET
    on the workings(after the second panel has been opened up) it has: 19A in a circle

    The FM is the company logo see Mikrolisk - was Feines für die Tasche... - Das Informationsportal rund um die Taschenuhr!

    the 19A is the movement number. I can't find an example on line, but this is a 19B:

    Assuming the A version came out a bit earlier (I don't actually know), the watch is probably 1920's/1930's.

    thanks very much for the info Marrick, i got a couple of pics up now (sorry for their poor quality).

    i think it needs a servicing, i wound it and it only worked for about 12hrs, but im not sure if im just not winding it enough or what, but if i give it a sortof jiggle it will work for a short time.

    i am just leaving it alone for now cause i dont want to break it, but i would love to be able to use it

    but thanks again for that information

    What's interesting about the parts list is that it looks like they sold the same movement as either a jeweled lever or a pin lever (parts 8, 10 and 15 were for the pin lever version ,parts 7, 9 and 14 were for the jewel lever). Since yours is 15 jewels, and I don't see any obvious cap jewels on the bridges, you've got a jeweled lever. I've never seen that before, and in fact thought that the swiss hegemony didn't allow them to do that.

    As it happens, I have just sold a PW with a Moeris 19H movement (came in a lot with a wristwatch I wanted) which had only 7 jewels. It had a jeweled lever.



    The standard 19H appears to have been 15J or 17J bidfun-db Moeris_19H: Moeris 19'''H open-face
