    I don't really know anything about pocketwatches but I would guess that yours is from around 1850's. It is a key wind, key set, and has a cylinder escapement. It is likely Swiss or French. The case is probably silver, check the caseback, the cover for any stamps or markings.
    I'm a watchbreaker not a watchmaker.

    Closeups of the hallmarks can aid in dating... as do clear pics.

    Interesting piece. The silver will polish nicely.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I have a similar watch of 14 K gold belonging to my great grandfather Maharaja Ranajit Sinha of Nashipur. The year printed is 1906.
