    RSAF pocket watch


    I have acquired a pocket watch but am trying to establish the manufacturer and year of production?

    I have uploaded some pictures to see if you good people can shed any light on the matter?

    Any further details greatly received. It simply
    displays on the inside of the watch RSAF.

    Many thanks in advance to anyone that may be able to share any information on the timepiece.

    The RSAF has nothing to do with the maker, it is just an direction indication for regulation, SF is slow-fast and R-A is the French equivalent.
    I'm afraid I can't help with the manufacturer it appears fairly generic.

    Hi Rob,

    the movement is a derivative of this one:
    bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: AS 220
    There were many variants, and as most are not listed in the usual movement registers, most official designations are not known.

    Don't mind the visible winding gears on the above example - they wind nothing and are just fakes to let it appear more valuable.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft
