    What's WUS Think of this find?

    Found this at an antique shop earlier (different shop than where I found the Gruen I posted earlier)





    And the best pic saved for last

    You have a 1918 vintage 16 size model 1908 grade 645. In its day it was a railroad watch. It's housed in a Dueber gold filled case. If you intend to use it you should have it serviced by a watchmaker that understands pocket watches.

    Me myself would never own a pocket watch because I don't have a practical use for it. However, I really like the style of the dial. It almost looks like the railroad dials that were used for a good part of the last century. The inner concentric circle is a nice touch. Enjoy!

    Funny you say that, I do believe this was approved for railroad use

    Just love movements in these old pocket watches they took such care.

    It looks similar to my Zenith Grand Prix Paris 1900.
