    It's a modern logo so it might be made by Swatch Group. I think they've had a partnership since 2007.

    You are not showing the movement, so for this particular one it can't be determined. Tiffany & Co had pocketwatches made for them by among others Patek Philippe, Audemars, Piguet, IWC in the past. They also had their own watch factory in Switzerland for a few years in the 1870'ies.

    I think Tissot still make mechanical pocket watches.

    Although I don't know what's in your wage packet ad don't wish to insult you on that point, all I can say is that if you're looking for something extremely similar, prepare to foot a hefty bill. The "0.925" and overall silver look suggests a platinum case and they should clock in at something in excess of about 20000 US$ for a watch that size. If you are looking for any old new pocket watch, as others suggest, there are heaps of alternatives.....

    My guess is that the "0.925" is a US sterling silver hallmark and that the "02" in the date means 2002. The whole package looks very modern to me.

    We'd need to see movement shots to be sure, though.

    Sure hope I'm wrong,

    Yes, the .925 is sterling silver - Tiffany's does a lot of jewelry in that metal. (Windy has a box full and I have a money clip.)

    Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. It looks to be a rather modern pocket watch. I saw a similar watch the other day in a shop. I think the asking price was $900, but I can't remember for sure. Before Swatch and Tiffany partnered, Tiffany watches were formerly done by contracted watchmakers.

    Goodness me! - and I thought that silver went out as a case material for watches around 1950.....
