    Longines pocket watch?

    Hi everybody,

    I wondered, if anybody has an Idea about the age and the originality of that pocket watch:









    Thanks,

    Axel

    Btw: I think the hands are not original and the watch might be from the early 1900s.

    I agree. The hands look like they are the Art Nouveau type common in the first decade of the 20th century.
    Certainly later than 1890 when the winged hourglass logo was registered as a trademark.
    Now IF the case serial number is the actual one (and it might be since it's a Longines case), the watch would date to 1903.
