    Re: R.Schmid pocket watch

    Here are some basic informations about the Maker registration: Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index Rudolphe Schmidt reg.1883 in Neuchartel. His main company name seems to be Cassardes watch & Co registred 1903 and own a lot of Trade names.
    Quality : Obviously 16 rubies that means the stone in the centre don't have a dialside partner but this is okay. It's more decoration because the minte wheel is a slow one with a big tube. A excenter microregulation and rhe wheel stones in chatons. The lever wheel has a cabstone at least on the dialside..than I count 17 stones ..I'm not really convinced about the quality. It might be a bid tam tam to look high quality or it might be well done. It would be nice to see a picture of the standing balance which has a breguet spiral. Maybe you can see the finish of the anchor with the magnifying glass. The movement itself look like a FHF one with a standart quality winding system.

    Regards Silke

    Rodolphe Schmid is remembered as one of the most important watches importer in Japan. where he had a watch factory with the Citizen brand in 1918. in 1930 this factory became the Citizen we know today.
