    Unknown Swiss Pocket Watch Symbol

    Hi...I'm looking for any help in identifying the logo/marking on this Swiss pocket watch movement. The original UK Sterling case dates the watch to approx. 1919. The photo wil hopefully show the unususal mark - a 3 pronged fork with the letters 'R' and 'S' on either side. It's also signed 'Swiss Made' '15 Jewels' and serial number '230330'. Thanks in advance.....D.

    Rotherham & sons ltd (find here: Mikrolisk - was Feines für die Tasche... - Das Informationsportal rund um die Taschenuhr!
    Description is taken from NAWCC:
    " Rotherham was a watch manufacturer in the true sense--that is, they made the entire watches including the cases. The information I've found in Max Cutmore's "Watches 1850-1980", indicates that they also had a factory in Switzerland and that they were "agents for Buren" and may have owned Rode, which were both Swiss. "

    weeeeeeeeeee........found my watch !!!.....I actually have another post with the exact same movement.......yours is the first I've seen that even comes close......17 jewel movement is made by Cortebert......but I am having trouble identifying the model #. Mine is slightly older than yours I think because my regulator is much fancier and more vintage looking....but that RS Trident is a mystery to me too. I'm wondering if the hands on yours look like Rolex as well / I'm positive the hands on mine are exactly the ones I found on a Rolex pocket watch.

    I bet yours winds smooth and keeps beautiful time also ?
