    Perret Locle Pocket Watch

    Hello all, I received a pocket watch from my grandfather and I can not find ANY information on it. On the dial its says Perret Locle. Other stampings on it are K12 852 JPS ( on the front inside cover) On the rear inside cover K12 29852 JPS On the movement cover it says Perret Locle Ancre Leveesibles Chaton Moi Chronometer Spiral Brequet 18 Rubis Then on one of the arms inside the movement is stamped Avance Retard ( I believe its a liitle hard to read). I will try and post pics. Thanks in advance for your help!

    (4)
    There have been some Perret Locle watches around: Daniel Perret, Perret & Fils, David Perret, G. Perret & Fils.
    Perret & Fils settled in Brenets which belongs to the district of Le Locle in the Kanton of Neuchâtel in Switzerland.

    Try to google a bit.
    Kind regards

    Sorry to say but better pics would help. Based on movements pics I googled I assume that the movement was made at the end of the 19th century (1870 - 1890).

    Dear,
    due to the gold indexes, very popular last decade / first decades 20th century.
    It is stem wound but key time set,
    So this is one of the first generation stemwound watches.
    On which you can see the missing link in fully stem wound operated watch
    The keyless works were not yet fully develloped.
    I would date it around 1890
    It is quite a high end Swiss lever pocketwatch.
    About Perret:
    This is quite a big family of horological importance going back as far as 1630. (they were Hugenots)
    The last working of this famous perret family were:
    Jules Fréderic and Isaac Henri Perret both first quarter of the 19 century, Both in Le Locle
    Although one more time mentioned in 1873, but that is a clock.
    What I think:
    Brand name trading is as old as commerce!
    I think a smart businessman bought the name Perret as it stand for quality and a big Horolocal history/tradition. And then started producing pocketwatches ( but not as a Manufacturer ofcourse!!! ) . So it is most likely a dial brand.
    Othertwise I must have found a reference.
    These might not be the answers you hoped for but I hope I have been of help!

    regards,
    RJ van Melle.
