    Information needed. Thanks

    Kind of a beginning collector here. I have acquired a pocket watch. The face is signed; Jos Sather
    Stuttgart

    Inside the back cover is engraved; Cylinder
    A
    Stein
    It's a key wind, key set movement. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Don

    I'm completely ignorant on pocket watches, so no help from me.

    Is it "A Stein" or rather "4 Stein" ?

    However if 4 then rather Steine ?

    Or it's rather A. Stein - ie. a name.

    Dear,
    What you discribe is late 19th century pocketwatch.
    Cylinderescapement.
    4, 6 or 8 rubis, jewels, Steine.
    As it is key wind it ios probably a floating barrel type watch.
    about the name:
    It was quite usual for a trader or jeweler to put their own name on it.
    Due to the production process these watches can't be identified to one maker in perticular.
    They are called Farmer's pocketwatch ebauches in Germany.
    If the balance still moves when the watch is GENTLY turned between your fingertips (turning motion with your full hand) the watch can likely be restored.
    pictures would help to say something about it

    Regards,
    RJ van Melle.

    The watch runs when I gently wind it. I'll try and get some pics up later.
