    Ulysse Perret Watch, Compass and Thermometer

    Hello,

    I have a Ulysse Perret pocket watch with a built in compass and thermometer. I can't find any info on it at all. Can any of you help me?

    Thank you!

    I've always thought a pocket watch without a wind vane was a waste of time :)

    Cool! Is the compass accurate?

    If I know where North is and I point the watch that direction! :) No, it's not consistently accurate.

    Crazy. I don't know anything about it, but I like what a wierdo it is. So unusual to see a smooth balance wheel on an old pocketwatch like that - maybe it's seen some service and had some parts replaced? It certainly look like someone broke out the simichrome on it...

    How did you come to be in posession of such a thing?

    I just recently bought it from a watch maker because of the "wierdo" factor. It runs well and keeps good time. I'm not certain about the balance wheel. And, I just discovered that the compass works pretty well when laying flat on a a table. I was a bit surprised! It has ulysse Perret Locle on it. I can't find much info about him online at all.

    Looks like a great thread for the vintage and pocket watch forum. I think I will move it there with a 2 day redirect.

    Good luck!
