    It is a modern (post-WWII) pocket watch with an Unitas Cal. 6498. The calibre designation is under the balance wheel. The movement is still made today (by ETA - as the ETA 6498) and used in countless wrist watches now that their size seems to have inflated to ginormous proportions due to the esoteric dictate of modern fashion.

    When I saw the pocket watch and crown of Glycine I said what a f..., that I will see first time in a PW the crown on dial which can not be- or at least I never saw until the 60's dials. Meylan never used that crown, Glycine started with Bienne-Geneve dials than came the bloom. When I see a pocket watch my timeline goes directly somewhere to 1850-1920 :) need to reset that spec.

    This watch is from after WWII and probably from after 1960 so I don't see anything out of place here.

    Hi there,

    I agree with Hartmut: Although the Unitas 6498 was introduced in 1950, I doubt it was available with features like mobile stud carrier and Incabloc before 1960. Even in the 70s Unitas still produced movements without shock devices, because they didn't regard it as necessary for pocket watches.
