    New to me Cortebert Transportation pocket watch

    Last night my Cortebert Transportation pocket watch arrived in the mail.

    I got it from forum member Thoth.

    The watch was as promised and Thoth is a pleasure to deal with. I have bought several from him and all were great.

    It is a nice watch with some good heft to it.

    I suspect this was marketed as a watch for trolley or metro use.

    That said I do have one issue. How do you pronounce Cortebert? I know it is also the name of a place in Switzerland. Is this name pronounced cort-bert? Cort- tee- bert or Cort- ee- bert?

    Here is a crappy photo(I need to clean the camera lens off)

    I'm always happy when a watch finds a good home, wear it in good health.

    Not many of the 23 jewel Cortebert around. If you need a bow protector let me know.
