    Vintage Double Faced Pocket/stop watch

    Hello,

    I've come across this vintage pocket/stop watch and I wasn't sure if anyone could tell me the age and the maker of it. There is no name or anything on the dial or the rest of the watch.

    Thank you,

    Blaine

    Well, one thing's for sure, it is a very interesting design. I do recall seeing one before- no idea about the manufacturer, though. The period of manufacture is likely anywhere between 1890 and 1910. Wish I could see the rest of the movement, but it does seem to be a proper chronograph- the picture is a bit blotchy, but it looks like it even has a column wheel.

    It looks somewhat similar to the Lugren patent as used on Waltham back-dials.

    HI very nice and rare peace. I don't know or understand chronographs but this is called a "centinnial" chronograph. You might check Alcide& Droz & fils / West-end Watch
