    Principal pocket watch?

    Ran into this one while searching online. Anyone ever heard of the brand? Seems relatively unknown.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    You are most welcome. I'm sorry nothing else has come up about the brand - it can't have been high volume.

    I can't make out the text on the back of the movement, but the general styling looks early 20th century. Almost looks like an early FHF movement, but reversed. Is it just the picture, or does the damasking not extend to the balance and lever cocks?

    Sorry for my ignorance, but what is a FHF movement?
