    Vintage English pocket/fob watch

    I'm thinking about my next purchase being a high quality, gold English pocket watch, but I'm struggling to find details on whom are the best 19 century and early 20th century makers.
    The following, I believe, are considered excellent-.Thomas Tompion, George Graham, and Thomas Mudge, John Jefferys, but was wondering if anyone else had any more names to watch out for or information on details to identify.
    Thanks

    Oh these are a good news for the auction houses and sounds like a high investion . This isn't my playground but I like to view these english high quality pocket watches. I wouldn't only look for names but more for the tech. There are made unbelievable physical chronometers with fantastic spirals and balances like free spring and so on. As far as I know not in all cases the makers are known. I guess there are a lot of names who could be mentioned..the best..its not to determine I guess. As a non engish high end collector the names Justin Vulliamy, Victor Kullberg and George Frondsham are in my head but I'm sure there are much more other outstanding watchmakers.

    Have a nice time to view and learn about this terrible nice time peaces with the end to aquire the best for you.
    Kind regards Silke
