    Hi
    Chris here

    I have a mechanical pocket watch that i have been trying to identify for a while now but cant seem to find any information on it any where this seems to be the biggest and best site ive found so far maybe somone here can help .

    Ive been told it is an old military watch but really cant be sure
    The watch has the name Bergland in script below the 12 position also has antichoch and 17 rubis on the watch face .
    it has a black face with luminous numerals and hands .

    if needed i can upload a pic or two .

    Any help would be appreciated

    The more pics the better. Markings, writing, numbers, movement if possible.
    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    I could not find anything on the maker
    'ANTICHOC' is shock protection on balance wheel
    I suspect prior to INCABLOC of 1933

    Anitchoc is French for shock proof. I'm not aware that the term is dateable, but that plate finish on the movement tends to be quite modern, which fits in my mind with the modern mass production finish to how the plates are assembled.

    I'd suggest 1960's at the earliest and more likely 1970's.

    Rather modern watch,I'd say.Try to look under the balance wheel and then tell us what U see.
