    non omega pocket watch

    Hi all before anybody says it, yes i know they is a pocket watch section, but as a poster on here thought i would give it a go as so many on here also collect pocket watches

    so here is my late fathers pocket watch which is now my mothers, just wanted any info on this pocket watch. sorry about pics they were taken with mobile. on the movement it says STAUFFER, CXDE and think its a f or r F/RONDS. the the inside case it says FINE SILVER, WARRANTED AND SS&C and a number 38131

    here are the bad pics





    cheers joe.

    Looks like a moderately generic Swiss pocket watch from ca. 1830-1870, judging by the bridge layout. Cylindre escapement, a little pedestrian by modern standards but not at the time that was made when pin lever Roskopf watches were already available for the impecunious masses. Presumably from "La Chaux de Fonds", a famous watchmaking city, close to Le Locle. Ebel are still in La Chaux de Fonds and I think Omega started there (they moved to Biel early in their history).
