    Pocket watch, no brand, need help to identify

    Hello everyone!

    I can really use some help from you to identify an old pocket watch that I have for many years now. It doesn't say any brand or writing on the watches face or on any of its back panels about the producer. It only says Cylinder 10 rubys. Until now the one thing that I was able to find out about it is that it has the silver markings 0.800 on its first back panel.
    I was wondering if anyone of you cold enlighten me regarding the period that this watch was produced, and the actual manufacturer.
    I have attached some pictures with the watch below.

    Thanks in advance, Alex.

    I think I see numbers below the hallmarks, am I correct? You might get better answers if you can take a more direct photo of the movement. I'm betting there's some indication of the movement maker that can't be see in your photos. I won't be able to help but those who can are going to need better photos.

    The movement, judging by the looks of it, is an FHF 11"', 10 jewels, cylinder escapement.

    Hi, it's a very nice Niello swiss made Ladys watch. The most of these beautiful cases where made by Huguenin Freres and you often find a HF or NHF mark inside. The age of this watch should be 1890 -1905 with the time set by PIN and the hole style of the dial. The crown should be replaced to a better matching one and the hands to a real pair also. I guess the hour hand is the orginal. These are very little mistakes and usual parts who get replaced by the time. IT's really a beauty and I guess with correcting these details she will win even if you don't believe that this is possible.

    Kind regards Silke

    Thank you verry much for helping me with this. Its a true relief to finally find out something about this watch. Good answer Silke, realy appreciate it. Still i cant find those markings on the mecanism that you advised me to look after. I looked afte the silver box and it really looks like Niello work, would like to learn something about the movement too. I will take better shots of the movement if this helps you.

    Regards, Alex.
