    Logle Gold Pocket watch

    I have my grandfathers Locle gold pocket watch. I would like to have some information on its history and value for either selling or insurance.It has "Le Richard" and a serial number inside the case. It is a manual wind with a key. It does work. Photos are attached.

    It should be "Locle", not "Logle", meaning that it was made in Le Locle (Canton Neuchatel, Switzerland), a town best known as the home to Zenith, also Tissot and Ulysse Nardin. It is difficult to give an assessment as to age and quality without seeing the movement; as for value, we don't assess that at all here (there is a sticky as to why).

    Thank you for that information. Does "Le Richard" have any significance? Do you know of anyone in San Francisco who can apprase it?

    I am sorry but I can't recommend anyone in San Francisco - I live in Germany. As for "Le Richard", it is possible that this refers to the famous Daniel Jean Richard who started up in Le Locle around 1700. The company no longer exists - the modern company Daniel Jean Richard (now renamed JeanRichard and in the ownership of Girard-Perregaux) is a new creation that bears the old name; it is also found in the neighbouring La Chaux de Fonds, not Le Locle.
