    Vintage Ultramar Pocket Watch

    I picked this up at a flea market in Havana, Cuba. It runs but stops frequently. Does anyone know anything about this watch? Any approximation for having it serviced where it will function properly? It looks to be from 1900.

    Thanks for any info you might have.

    Hi and welcome.

    1900 to 1920. Ultramar appear to be the US importer of the watch. Roskopf movement, can’t quite see the escapement in your photo but likely to be pin lever.

    As far as servicing goes, it depends if you can find someone who is willing to work on it given the low grade (although well jewelled for what it is) and how much it will cost you given that it very likely to be more than the watch is worth.

    Thanks for the note.
    Here’s a couple more movement pics if that helps.

    Looks like pin pallet, at least as far as I can enlarge the photo on my phone.

    Definitely a pin pallet movement. Made by Liga:
