    Vintage Repeater Pocket Watch

    Hi everyone. I have this interesting pocket watch that I got really cheap from a flea market. The watch is not running but I'm getting it repaired. The watch ticks and the seconds hand moves but the hour and minute hands don't move. It sets with a small push button at the 11 on the case. I can't any markings anywhere on the watch and I was hoping someone could identify it. Here are the pics:

    Congratulations! A repeater pocket watch is one of my grails (I always though that they were far superior to the IMO completely overrated tourbillons!). If the watch runs but the hands are stuck in one place, it may well just be a matter of a loose cannon pinion which can be tightened during servicing.

    Thanks! I dropped it off at my watchmaker today who says he can fix everything that's wrong with it! I would still like to know some info on the movement though

    I wish I could help. However, repeaters are the most complex of watch movements and even now, very few companies have the technology to make them in house (a lot of modern repeater movements are made for companies by Cristophe Claret whose company specializes in that sort of thing). I would have thought that the range of movements for that sort of feature even in the old days should be limited.
