    Tiffany & Co pocket watch

    Hello,

    I found this wonderful forum while trying to research a pocket watch for my fiance. I have spent several hours searching old threads and have learned quite a bit so far. I definitely see more vintage watches in my future; especially those used by the military. By comparing her watch to some found here I believe it to possibly be manufactured around 1880. I have seen two different threads with the same or similar movement; one was identified as Longines and the other as LeCoultre. Any comments or help in identifying the movement and approximate age of the piece would be most welcome and appreciated.

    Thank you all!

    badbackdan,

    Thank you for the link! The one linked to has a very similar 4 digit serial number. Would the serial number on the movement of the Tiffany watch above be engraved by the movement maker or Tiffany? The case and movement have the same serial number.

    This watch is way outside my wheelhouse. I just happened to find those links and thought they might be helpful to someone.

    Vaguely reminiscent of IWC.

    Gut is Agassiz but it could also be from the time Tiffany had their own factory.

    Thank you both for the information, I have read Tiffany had their own factory for a few years.

    I don't know anything about the movement, but it is a exquisite pocket watch and in excellent condition. Wear it with pride ;)
