I am new here so let me present myself a little bit: My name is Cornel, I am 40 years old and I just love old pocket watches. I do not have a collection but hope to start one. The reason for this post is to ask for help in finding more info about this pocket watch I have from my uncle. It has an enamel dial with roman numerals, at 12 under a floral decoration it is written:
The movement has an oval cartouche with DIOGENE inscription and 233103 serial written under the dial. Unfortunately as you can see is in very bad shape.
I've search the net and all I can find is that it might be a trade mark for Zenith watches and the only similar looking pocket watches were made for Turkish market under K. Serkisoff & Co. name with Billodes movement.
If anyone can give me more info it would be very nice, especially about A.S.T. Also if someone has something similar I would like to see a photo with it. I am thinking to repair it and I want to have an idea of how it looked (especially the hands, I remember they were beautifully cut but it was a long time ago - more than 25 years - and I may be mistaken)
Thank you very much.
