    Pocket watch information Remontoir cylindre 10 rubis

    Hi there, I picked up this pocket watch recently mixed in with some other stuff. It is missing the winding crown but seems complete otherwise. Any information on the watch or where to get a crown would be appreciated. Thanks, Monti

    1880s-1890s ladies' watch. The movement's a very typical, but decently finished Swiss ebauche with a cylinder escapement, likely made by FHF. "Remontoir" simply refers to the fact that it's stem-wound (as opposed to the earlier key wound and set movements).
