    No problem. It is a lovely pocket watch
    I doubt we can identify the maker
    BUT a picture of inside case may help us date it

    Look like import mark for London

    So do i, would be nice to find out a little more as online research is leading to a dead end..... :(

    Also and i could be wrong here, but as far as i knew george stockwell was an importer of mostly silver, nowhere can i find any proof or info on any gold imports :s whether its watches or what i cant seem to find anything which links him to the import of gold watches. Another thing and again i could be wrong but it would indicate its 15ct and as far as i know 15ct hasnt been used for a very long time...... :s
