    URGENT: Need assistance identifying this pocket watch.

    Hello, I have inherited this pocket watch from my late grandfather and I have not a clue about it. I have tried researching it but have came up blank every time.

    It is engraved with my Grandfather's name, the company he worked for and the dates of which he worked for said company.

    It appears the watchmaker may be "Wendels" but I can not seem to find anything on it.

    Someone PLEASE help me! : [
    I have included a link multiple pictures as to hopefully assist you assist me.
    Thanks in advance!

    Is or does this watch constitute vintage? It looks to be around 15 to 20 years old.

    The sub-forum is called Vintage "&" Pocket Watches, So I figured it meant both, Either way. I was just looking for some help.

    Modern quartz pocketwatch with a wristwatch movement. Gold-plated. I dunno. There are millions of these (admittedly, cheap) watches made every year.

    Finding out anything about it will probably be impossible.

    True enough, Just meant it did not look very old. I never heard of the company, I did a quick search and drew a blank. Hope you have luck with your search, that's half the fun.

    There is nothing special about this watch from a technological or collecting point of view, it could have been made yesterday. Since it is quartz we know that it was made post-1970.

    However what is very special about it is the nostalgia related to your grandfather. Treasure it for that.

    LOL, "urgent" usually means "I just bought it" or "I've just listed on fleabay"...

    You may check "ebay" it is not listed on there, and I find it hard that I would have to BUY a pocket watch with my grandfather's name engraved on it. Considering we still have the same last name ; ].
    I just got tired of searching myself and coming up blank. Thanks to all who provided me with actual information and insight ; ].
