    Rose Gold Pocket Watch identification needed! :)





    Family heirloom, not much idea from where or when it came, except the movement may be french or swiss?





    The back has a crown and underneath a small star with a crescent, the same logo is found on the movement as well.


    Thanks in advance!

    I suspect that the middle of the dial has been "modded" after it was made and bought. It may well have had a company logo ("Phenix") on it but that would have been obliterated.....

    exact Hartmut
    is a decal applied on the dial. I think that was in use after 1912.

    Thanks a lot gentlemen, your input have been invaluable and you've steered me in the right direction as i try to get an idea of the history of the watch. In the future i might dare take it apart further or have a watchmaker do it to try to glean any more information from markings, get a look at that decal up close, etc.

    It also seems from my limited google-fu(Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index) that my particular "build" of the mov't is somewhat rare, with the three screws in one line on the big SS wheel closest to the stem(pardon my noobness in not yet knowing the correct term for this one), whereas on most picture of this mov't the three screws are in a triangle.

    Actually, having it cleaned and re-oiled by a pro while taking pictures of all the internals sounds like a pretty good idea to me.

    Thanks guys, and if you have any more info or want to add anything at all, please do so :)

    Kris
