Went in to the local pawn shop yesterday and made a bit of an impulse buy. The watch is a Moeris Grand Prix 17 jewel swiss made pocket watch with Incabloc. From the little bit of research I have done it seems that this is somewhat of a generic case that many companies used. Moeris was founded in 1893 and absorbed by Tissot in the 70's and this seems to be a bit of a later model. I have found some pictures of similar watches that people said were late 40's to early 50's but I'm not sure. I was able to unscrew the caseback to get a look at the movement which to my surprise has no markings to speak of. The number "753" can be seen just below the movement on the case and also on the inside of the backplate. Other postings of similar watches with similar movements have mentioned Unitas which I assume this is.
I'm just looking for a little more information if anyone has any. The condition is really amazing which makes me a little weary. The acrylic crystal is very nice, the case is in great shape and the dial looks immaculate. It also came with what looks to be the original box and hang tag. I would have liked to see some more information on the movement such as "swiss made" or at least the company name though.
I'm really excited about this watch and no matter what I find out it is a keeper for me. I work for the railroad here in Canada so I appreciate the history and craftsmanship of these old pocket watches.
Here are some pictures, and I appreciate any help you can provide.
