    To identify the older English watches require more expertise than I have. The names engraved in the movement are often the retailer and not the actual maker...

    The crescent shaped bridge watch is unlike any bridging I have seen. The mark stamped into the edge appears to be a steamboat or RR engine... I can't tell. But I've not seen it either!

    Interesting pieces.
    "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!

    Hi Lenny. The last 2 movements are english lever fussee verge types. The design of the balance cock hints that they date between 1760 and 1830. As Eeeb suggests they are marked with the retailers name.
