    Pocket watch info help? Pick heavy

    Hi lovely folk of watchuseek!

    This watch used to belong to my great grandfather, but I know absolutely nothing about it at all. Any info about rough date or anything about the company at all would be fantastic! Google hasn't been a friend.

    I try to start but I can't give you facts on this watch. It looks like a swissmovent who cross without case the atlantic around probably 1920 .Because of import duties they've been often sold single and with less juwels. In america it was usual that the customer select case and movement seperate from each other.

    THe case is as far as I can see american and gold filled one. Below the crown you can see the pure brass by abration. Unfortunately the 10 years garantie is gone .

    Kind regards
    Silke

    Based on the patent ref (I don't have my references on hand) I would say that is a Tavannes (Cyma) movement. As mentioned and as was common practice it is in a US case.
