Hi everyone, I'm completely new to watches.
I love the really old pocket and wrist watches, I bought a pocket watch off Ebay recently, I haven't received it yet but have some photos of the watch.
The markings on the watch case are as follows 34006, Lion, Anchor, H, C.V.
I have done some research into the markings, I found it is sterling silver, Birmingham, dated at 1882 but can't find anything to do with the C.V marking? I'm guessing this is the makers mark can anyone help me with identifying the watch and maker from the markings and photo's?
It's probably not a very good watch but I like it all the same :)
