    Need Help to ID German hunter case pocket watch vintage 1920

    Can someone help me ID a gold pocket watch with a hunter-style case? It was a 1921 wedding present from my grandmother to my grandfather in post WW I Germany. The movement frame has capital letters engraved in this fashion: F S
    A R

    and the inside of the back cover is stamped either: CE CB
    Metal Metal.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi,

    usually marking are not much use by themselves. We'll have a much better chance with some good photos of the watch. The movement itself is what offers the best clues. You can easily open the back of a hunter watch (often 2 covers, outside and inside). If you can get a camera with a good macro facility to take the photo - then we'll be in a better position to help.

    I'm assuming the FSAR is on the balance cock (the one supporting the big knobby wheel). They stand for "Fast/Slow Avance/Retard", and indicate which directly to move the regulator arm on the balance to adjust the speed of the watch.
