    An unknown pocket watch. Can you help me identify it?

    Hello!
    I own such pocketwatch. Can anybody say anything about it? It has been in my family for a while, bought in Riga at the beginning of the 20th century.
    Unfortunately, the cover is missing. The crystal is not original.
    A few years ago a watchmaker fixed it and thanks to that, the mechanism is working.
    I would love to restore it to the former glory. How should I approach it?

    Welcome to Watchuseek. That was probably a nice watch until the cover went down south. If you can find another watch with trashed movement and such a case, you could transfer the movement or transfer at least the case cover. The movement is probably by Schild Freres / Eterna - it looks like a precursor to this one since there are minor differences:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Eterna 19'''H5.7

    I would advise you to look for Eterna watches of around that age (pre-WWI period) with faulty movements. Good luck.
