I got this pocket watch years ago as a gift. It's from Colombia and the script on the dial for "Ferrocarril de Antioquia" was the name for the railroad in Medellin, Colombia. It runs, but not for long and as you can see the movement isn't the cleanest.
Inside the pocket watch it is stamped 4005385 inside the front cover, inside the back cover and inside the movement cover. On top of the movement cover is the name "Juan Heiniger - Medellin," which from what I could find online suggests he was an importer of watches to Colombia.
Now I couldn't quite identify the movement.
It is not stamped with any company name. It says Swiss Made, 17 jewels and has a 16B on it. Underneath the balance wheel it looks like there is an "M" emblem.
Any ideas of what the movement is and who made it?
Any ideas of how old this could be?
Any suggestions on whom would be able to work on vintage pocket watches?
My regular watch guy didn't want to work on it and I would like to get it cleaned up and back to a properly working watch if possible since I would like to keep this as a family heirloom.
Any and all feedback would be appreciated.
