    In need of Assistance: Tekron Pocket Watch- 17 Jewel

    Hi all,

    I recently inherited a Tekron Pocket Watch (17 Jewel) from my father's grandfather. The only information I have about the watch was that my father's grandfather was a railroad worker in Italy in the 1950's and used the pocket watch to monitor train schedules. Amazingly, the watch is still working.

    I was wondering if anyone could provide me with further details about the watch? Particularly, I'm interested in knowing if the watch holds any value or is a rare product in anyway.

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    I doubt this watch is as old as you think. It looks to be of fairly late production - I'd say no earlier than the 1970s/80s.

    If you could show the movement that may help.

    In view of the subseconds, there should be a genuine pocket watch movement inside (rather than a wrist watch movement with central seconds) - which, unless it's a rather small pendant watch (and it doesn't really look like it), may well be an Unitas 6498. If the watch is from earlier, it might have an ETA 951 or derivative but my bet would be on the Unitas.
