I was in the loft today and came across a pocket watch by Kendall & Dent. This used to belong to my now deceased father-in-law and I have seen it before but forgot all about it . In the last year I have got into watches but spend most my time on the Russian forum. We did take this a few years ago to a jewellers who said ,I now know wrongly, that it needed a new stem in the top , they had sent it away but an "expert" said it was no good. They even offered us £20 for it,which we declined and left it.
So my questions:
What is it made of?
Am I right in thinking it has a Swiss movement?
Are the two things where I assume you use a key (not a stem) , one to wind it and one to set it?
I have seen other Kendall watches but made in London not Buren, is this the same company?
Is it worth having it serviced before winding it, if I can find a key to fit it ?
Thanks for any help.
